A life-changing experience in the Arizona desert led TJ to decide not to hide his talent under a bushel, to follow his long-hidden-away passion for Country music and reinvent himself as a country rock artist.
As he explains, “My debut album 'The Long Game' contains 10 songs that I'm very proud of, combining the influences and funky Country grooves of The Band, Brothers Osborne and Little Feat with the stories and imagery of my favourite lyricists like Jason Isbell and Lowell George.
“I've done my best to make the songs thought-provoking, interesting and funny,” he adds, “combined with exciting playing and production. I like songs to have a story or a twist, or both. I think of them as a small window through which you can watch a scene play out in somebody's life: that, combined with the right musical backdrop for the scene, is what makes Country and Americana music so powerful."
