A sunny mix of original and traditional songs set to an exuberant pop beat, with a hint of 1980s alt-rock. Singer-songwriter CJ's arrangements of evergreens such as “Down By the Bay” and “Wheels on the Bus” are engaging and fresh, but he earns highest marks for his too-few, but irresistible original tunes, “Hey-O,” “Yellow Taxi” and “You Gotta Do.”

“And the final stop on our tour is sunny southern California. The artist known simply as, CJ, takes children’s standards like “Five Little Monkeys’ and revs it up with a killer horn section and a wry sense of humor. In addition to providing a fresh take on children’s standards, CJ also gets high marks for a great sounding disc, a detail lost on some children’s performers. For great sounding standards with a twist, CJ’s your man!” - CleverParents.com


A favorite with elementary school teachers and households across America, CJ brings his family friendly music to Memorial Hall with his "Children's Concert with CJ". - Jason Bennett, The Cincinnati Enquirer


Thank you, CJ, for adding so much excitment to my classroom! The CDs Listen! FUNdamentals, and Once Upon a Rhyme have been staples in my classroom for almost 10 years! My kindergartners never tire of them, and they provide a fun way to teach all of the basics of reading! - Andy Baumgartner, 1999 National Teacher of the Year

Bio

CJ is a family artist who has sold 75,000 recordings independently, mostly to teachers in the U.S. since 1994. When one does the math, millions of children hear CJ in their classrooms everyday, but can't buy it in stores yet. Recently, CJ has been making the transition to the commercial market with the re-release of his FUNdamentals album, and as a result, has already received commercial attention with the "Parent's Choice Approved" award for the aforementioned record. He brings a pop, funk, rock feel to his children's music (Blend “Beck" "The Wiggles” “Justin Timberlake”). His style is irresistible to kids and families, and his live show is full of energy and interaction. He performs nationally, and is based in CA. CJ is set to become a household brand in family entertainment.
