Here's an interesting video clip we were recently given the privilege to debut. TJ Courtney
shot this harrowing cut in the wake of a tornado that devastated his home town of Wilbraham Massachusetts earlier this summer. Paired with the nostalgic, grunge soundtrack "One Day", I think you'll find these audio visuals carry some fairly dramatic, emotional weight. The song is from Courtney's EP of the same name.
TJ Courtney was born on December 10, 1985 and raised in Wilbraham, MA. With a musical style that harkens back to 90's powerhouse acts such as Oasis, Incubus and Silverchair, Boston-based artist TJ Courtney is bringing a thoughtful, introspective approach to songwriting. Whether it's the infectious "One Day," which questions our impact as a species on the world, or "Who Are They," a song that brings to light this generation's paranoid obsession with online voyeurism, TJ delivers his message with gritty vocals that are instantly recognizable, while blending hooks and melodies with his eloquent storytelling.
Teaming up with a solid crew in the studio, TJ collaborated with songwriter/producer Jason "Space" Smith (Seether), songwriter Waymon Boone (Splendor), producer Andrew Dixon (Colbie Caillat) and mixer Mark Needham (The Killers, Neon Trees) to complete his recent "Into The Sky" EP. In support of his latest release, a spring acoustic run is slated on the East Coast, including stops at venerable venues such as the Middle East (Boston), Webster Theater (Hartford) and the Delancey (NYC), while a national summer tour run will entail a 4-piece ensemble to spotlight the full rock arrangement of Into The Sky.
When he isn't busy creating in the studio, TJ's other interests include golf, creative writing (fiction), chess, and photography.
