With a four star review in Rolling Stone, A.J. Croce's Cage of Muses is a shining milestone of the circuitous road that the singer-songwriter has traveled - from his debut album as a jazz influenced blues-based artist to his evolution into a pop music iconoclast. But at this juncture, A.J. is more focused on the present and the future than the past. And after a three-year stint living in Nashville, he has come home to California. In the span of a 20 year plus career, A.J. has headlined festivals, concerts, and major listening venues worldwide. He has been seen and heard on shows including The Late Show with David Letterman, Austin City Limits, Good Morning America, E!, MTV, and CNN, and has performed with a roster of artists that includes his idol Ray Charles, B.B. King, Carlos Santana, Rod Stewart, Aretha Franklin, and Willie Nelson. A loyal and appreciative audience and glowing press from Rolling Stone to the New York Times confirms the appeal of A.J.'s genre-spanning music.
