TLR ARTIST OF THE MONTH:
Born and raised in a small town just outside of Bend, Oregon, AJ Kross began his music career at a very young age playing in a band with his mother and father.
At age three AJ had already sang lead vocals on a national children’s album. By age of ten, AJ had branched out and started his own band that helped shape the artist that he is today. After spending a decade traveling around the Northwest AJ made the move to Nashville in pursuit of a career in Country music. During his first few years in Nashville he worked passionately on perfecting his craft as a songwriter making a goal to write at least two songs a day with hundreds of songwriters around town.
After four years in Nashville AJ decided it was time to release his music as an artist, releasing his debut EP, “People Gonna Talk”. Quickly after the release, the EP climbed the Country iTunes charts and AJ began to receive more recognition around town from songwriters and music executives. Since then AJ Kross has continued to write in preparation of yet another release set for early 2020. AJ has been influenced his entire career by such artists as: Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton and Johnny Cash. His voice has everything you would expect from a true Country artist and has been described by fellow songwriters as “honey poured over thunder”.
