"TJ George-Melodic Groove"

TJ George

Performs locally and is taking his brand of Melodic Groove to a national audience. TJ recently performed on the radio for the Old Fashioned Live Christmas Show on Sunny 95. He has also performed on Wags and Elliot QFM 96.3 Morning Show to aid in a local benefit. TJ’s newest CD Melodic Groove contains ten original songs available both in hardcopy and electronic download on www.tjgeorge.com


Excerpts from www.tjgeorge.com

Sometime ago Dick Clark said that songs are the photo album of our lives. That has never been truer for someone like me that chronicles the moments in his life through songs. They symbolize the apex and convergence of the strongest emotions with the most seminal events I experience and then on to the next and the next.

Those of you following the saga on-line know parts and pieces of the making of this project, Melodic Groove, and the long unexpected journey it truly was. Those whom are directly involved in my life from day to day know themselves as the muse and inspiration for the songs subject matter which range from celebration, agony, new love, bad love, good love, death and most of all living hope.

The journey in the making of Melodic Groove brought me in contact with players locally and legendary musicians on the coasts. David Lasley who has sung for James Taylor for 33 years and boasts his own string of top ten songs was gracious enough to add his brand of blue eyed soul to this project. Michael 'Miguelli' Sgueglia whose guitar stylings can be heard all over Melodic Groove and has also played for countless renowned artists in the business including Sting, Nora Jones, Sara Barielles and has a new song in the latest Sex in the City 2 movie. The countless musicians on Melodic Groove are some of the best in Columbus, Ohio therefore I am proud to straddle both the local and west coast scenes.

May 27th saw the unofficial release of Melodic Groove and a special unofficial release party for close family and friends at Cementos in Upper Arlington. It was a genuinely humble experience to play these songs with a seasoned band to an enthusiastic audience. I can only say this was a hell of a ride...let's do it again soon, shall we?
