TJ McCloud is the real deal. Just ask his Momma.
His songs have sold thousands of albums, both in physical copies and online. Several songs, including "Passenger Seat" and "Out of My League", have become underground classics on high school and college campuses around the nation, thanks to indie radio and tons of internet downloads. Touring with his band, StephenSpeaks, as both lead singer and songwriter throughout the US and Asia, he stumbled on two #1 smash hits in the Philippines, and heavy rotation on MTV-Asia.
Since then, TJ has begun a much anticipated solo career. His rootsy folk/pop style and heartfelt lyrics have earned him widespread recognition as a songwriter and vocalist, being compared to such artists as Bebo Norman, James Blunt, Five for Fighting, and John Mayer.
TJ's song "Miles Between Us" (The Airplane Song) was used in the Motion Picture "Decoys" and received international airplay and distribution. With his solo debut, "Kind of Life", TJ again turned heads and ears with a combination of faith-inspired lyrics and love songs together on one collection. The recently released "Long Live Love", is full of unforgettable, classic love songs, ready-made for mainstream pop radio, that listeners will love to song along to.
TJ's far-reaching talent has earned him fans from a number of different genres. In 2006 and 2007, he penned collections of kids songs for Parable Bookstores, which quickly became the chain's highest selling items. A follow up collection is planned for Christmas 2008. Other upcoming releases include a collection of modern interpretations of the Psalms, a collection of CCM tracks, a collection of original Worship music, and a stunningly well-written collection of ready-to-pitch Country tunes.
With his deeply written songs, unforgettable melodies and disarmingly honest, simple style, TJ McCloud sells albums and wins over listeners for the long run- always keeping them coming back to sing along- just one more time
