About AJ


A little history on me. My name is AJ, but they call me Smooth. Not really sure why. A southern soul, I've been playing music since 2000; starting at the age of 11. Even before owning a pair of drumsticks, I could be found playing on pots and pans with window blind wands everyday.

Beginning my music career as a drummer, my parents finally bought me a set of drums which helped me develop a strong sense of rhythm. With this new love of music burning, I taught myself how to play piano, starting at around 13. All of this practice lead me to perform with choirs, drumlines, and many different bands across the south.


Today, I continue to play piano and record new studio music. Writing all of my songs from scratch usually begins with me playing piano at home. While writing, it is common for me to share my new ideas with friends and random people who have no problem being honest. Want the chance to become one of those people? Sign Up Now
