Biography

“Unbelievable talent!”
- My Texas Music

In the eyes of many, music is something that one listens and dances to. But for Leon Roberson Jr. a.k.a. LRJ, music is not only a career it’s a way of life. For LRJ, that life began on the rugged Eastside of Houston, TX. Throughout all of the adversities, LRJ attended the Art Institute of Houston where he studied video production, audio engineering, and script writing. LRJ graduated from the Art Institute of Houston in June of 1999.
In 1999, LRJ had a debut single entitled, Mentally Gentally Help Me Lord. The single was available in retail stores through limited release and sold out. In June of 2000, he released his second single T-E-X-A-S, which received local airplay and also sold out. In 2002, under Cinque Entertainment, LRJ released his debut album, Not of This World which sold over 2000 albums in local retail, Internet, and underground street sales. Because of that album, LRJ received street credibility as well as commercial success. LRJ then became a well-known writer, producer, and radio DJ for Houston’s own 90.1 KPFT.
In 2003, LRJ began to receive airplay on national and college radio, which nominated him for a performance at the world renowned SXSW Music Convention in Austin, TX. LRJ performs at multiple venues throughout Texas, Louisiana, Florida, California, etc. and maintains a solid fan base.
