Key Tracks: I Am, Breathe
This guy can sing. SJ has a soulful flare to his latest EP, Coffee, that will make you want
to learn how to sing and play guitar. If you like artists like John Mayer and Jason Mraz,
you'll like SJ.
SJ’s song, “I Am,” is a nice track where the artist talks about all the things he is. The
musical composition is great and so is the songwriting and singing. This song reminds
me of something I'd hear at the end of a romantic comedy starring Ben Stiller because
it's got a lot of fun and upbeat vibes to it. After listening I want to hop on a scooter and
take a ride along a beach in the Caribbean someplace. Great tune.
My favorite song by SJ on this EP is, “Breathe,” because it's just a good song. He talks
about how long the fall is from happiness if you don't take time out to just breathe. So
many people could truly avoid having panic attacks and bouts with depression if they
would just do as SJ says in this song and just breathe. The music production is freaking
awesome, from the drums to the guitars and string arrangements. SJ's voice is
incredible and has a lot of sincerity and richness in it. This song is very deserving of
Other notable songs I'd recommend checking out on SJ's new album include: "Let Me
Be", "Almost Good Enough", and "Coffee".
Overall, SJ is one of the reasons we should support great unsigned artists. His sound is
flat out cool and his voice lends itself to greatness. With the right marketing and tour
schedule, this guy could sell 50,000 copies of this project independently. He's that good!
MUSICAL GOAL: "My goal is to build my brand and support myself by making music
and sharing it with the world.” - SJ
