Listen to Don't Think This Christmas (excerpt)
Pianist-songwriter AJ DeGrasse weaves his voice and hands with unique intricacy. His sound is impassioned, bold and soulful; his piano voicings rich and immediate. Performances echo his mentor Bruce Hornsby as well as Ray's Charles and LaMontagne. Listen for influences Randy Newman, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Steve Winwood, and John Mayer.
Based in SoCal, AJ hosts a video web-series featuring collaborations with music-makers, photographers, fine artists, chefs, and other creative thinkers.
