P.J. releases her first album to the European market (per advise from her Nashville 'buddies') It gets MAJOR airplay which leads to "Album of the Year" & "Best Female Indie of the Year " in 1994 as reported by the European Country Music Association. She also racks up "Star of Tomorrow 1994" as voted on by U.S. radio DJ's in the "Indie" market & "International Star of 1995". This leads to a European tour and large International fanbase.
At one point, P.J. had 4 (four) of her singles from this debut album that hit the Top '20' at the same time per the European - American - Asian Entertainment Network charts. That had never been done before, according to the CEO. As if that isn't enough... she put this Album on her OWN 'Indie' label (Priceless Records) which goes on to release 'compilation CD's' featuring other talent and introducing them into the European market. This too is a MAJOR success and gets 'rave' reviews from European DJ's. This then led to her doing her own "Indie" Country music publication and opening her own music publishing company (Taste 'O Texas Music)/BMI which provided original recording material to many of those artists for radio release.
She receives a record deal but 'turned it down', as she didn't feel it was the 'right deal' for her at that time. P.J. stays true to herself and knows what she wants. She has laid tremendous groundwork and is getting ready to make a 'comeback' with a new album, which will be 'mostly' all original self-penned tunes. The new album is scheduled to be released in April, 2007.
I grew up listening to ALL sorts of music: Aerosmith, AC/DC, Elton John, Eagles, mixed in with Patsy Cline, Dolly Parten, Vince Gill, Alabama... I think there's alot of people out there (like me) who listen to a wide variety of stuff, so I think I'll have an 'audience' there with my new album. My writing style is 'all over the place'. There's going to be country on there (YOU BET).. but you'll also hear some folk undertones and R & B undertones as well.
P.J. has served as a "TOP PRODUCING" Real Estate agent for the past 10 yrs. Now, 10 years after leaving the music business, she's making a HUGE comeback..... You can bet, whatever she does is sure to be a HUGE success and there's alot of people waiting for it!
