CJ Solar - This country singer/songwriter is a name you will be hearing more about. Since signing with Sea Gayle Music, two time ASCAP Country Publisher of the year co-owned by Brad Paisley, CJ has had songs of his recorded by other country artists such as Jerrod Niemann and Justin Moore, including writer credits on Jerrod's current single "Blue Bandana". This fall, he will be hitting the road in support of his own single, ‚"Tallboy" and release of his EP to follow.
From his hometown of Baton Rouge, LA to Nashville, TN‚ CJ got where he is today by combining the old ways and the new ways of becoming an artist. Like artists of the past, he has been playing music professionally since the age of 10. He moved to Nashville at 17 and started a band that has toured most of the southeast and he has, literally, played from coast to coast recently (Oregon to Delaware). CJ began writing at age 13, but wanted to hone his craft so he attended Belmont University where he graduated in May of 2014 with a degree in Songwriting and Music Business. This combined path has allowed him to develop who he is as a songwriter, musician, and performer. CJ has become a raw and edgy performer with passion and energy in his live shows. He has a guitar driven sound that tells stories in an impactful way delivered with an audible and visual experience reminiscent of some of the great southern rock acts of the past he grew up on.
