A.J. Croce

The son of Jim Croce, Adrian James Croce made his own musical mark with a combination of contemporary blues and soulful roots rock. He honed his piano skills as a boy, while recovering from a brain tumor that left him partially blind. Taking influence from the likes of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, as well as several early blues artists, he began gigging on the San Diego circuit and signed a record contract with Private Music at the age of 19. Two years later, Croce released his self-titled debut, which featured production from John Simon and T-Bone Burnett. That's Me in the Bar appeared in 1995, and Croce soon left the label to sign with Ruf Records, for whom he issued Fit to Serve in the spring of 1998. Although best known for his piano-based interpretation of American roots music, Croce switched gears in 2000 by hiring alternative rock producer Michael James (whose credits included albums by New Radicals, Hole, and Jane's Addiction) to helm his next record, Transit. Four years later, the singer's fifth album (the self-titled Adrian James Croce) explored more elements of pop music, while 2006's Cantos featured a decidedly stripped-down feel. Croce then returned to a wider sound with Cage of Muses. ~ John Bush, Rovi

He's an amazing individual. Went to school with AJ and he was as individual and special then as he is now. Remember him sitting at the piano at school just playin and in his own world of music. Yes under appreciated indeed.

Under-apprec i a t e d . . . A B S O L U T E L Y ! ! ! I have just seen him in concert and man, I just don't get why he isn't more popular. That man can bang on the piano and SANG his heart out!

I saw him first as a surprise opening act for Santana and I was hooked. At that time his voice was much, much lower. Low or High...his voice is the sexiest! Love his music and know he's under-apprec i a t e d .

His music is nothing at all like Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles, and his voice reminds me more of Billy Joel or something.

That's not to say he isn't good though. <=

He is one of my favs for more than 10 years, now. I made my 10 year old daughter listen to this album when she was only in the womb. :)
I watched this thing on PBS years ago, and fell in love. His piano playin is just my style!

Why doesn't this bio say that he is the son of Ingrid and Jim Croce. Duh

Fabulous artist! His first album is some of the best blues covers I've ever heard, and his originals stuff is great. "I Found Faith" is a classic.

Been loving his music for years...very tough act to catch on tour. Website cames that he plays on occassion at his mothers' restauraant( C r o c e s in San Diego)(Jazz Club), but security says that those appearances are very rare as well.

Odd, no mention of the man who I am pretty sure was his father, Jim Croce.
