A singer-songwriter boasting truly eclectic talents, A.J. Croce is as likely to pull an old boogie woogie piano jam out of his sleeve as he is to offer up a swampy New Orleans funk groove or a fresh and touching original. His first five CD releases each hit the radio charts in a different genre—jazz, americana and blues, adult alternative, the American college radio chart, and the U.S. top 40. Praising A.J.'s most recent album, Cage of Muses, David Wild of Rolling Stone magazine calls him “one of our greatest young songwriters."
After losing his father, multi-platinum recording artist Jim Croce, to a tragic plane crash and his eyesight to a brain tumor, A.J. gradually regained sight in his left eye and came into possession of his father’s weathered songbook and guitar. By the age of 16, he was a regular performer at local nightclubs in San Diego, and he hasn't looked back since then. In addition to radio play and exposure through his exhaustive touring, his songs have traveled to the far reaches of our galaxy on two space shuttle missions. A.J. himself regularly performs with folks like Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, and Ray Charles, and his television appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Austin City Limits, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and Entertainment Tonight.
