About The Event

TJ Johnson, Jazz, Blues, Swing, Gospel.

With effortless intonation and soul, TJ transcends the genres of Jazz, Blues and Country, convincing the audience that any one of timeless songs were actually written for him.

TJ Johnson is widely considered to be one of the UK’s most charismatic highly revered Jazz and Blues singers. He is also a hot piano player and respected bandleader. He was presented with Best Blues Singer by Jools Holland at the 2018 Boisdale music awards.

TJ sings songs of the night, songs of hope and despair, taking you on a musical trail from the Jazz dives of New Orleans, the foot tapping Honky Tonks of Texas to the Hip Speakeasies of New York.

Drawing from a rich eclectic mix of influences such as Dr John, Ray Charles, Jimmy Witherspoon, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Willie Nelson, TJ shapes the music into his own individual style with a professional yet relaxed stage manner.

He Sprang on to the Jazz scene in the late 80’s as a jazz singer with Max Collie at the age of 17 and since forming his own band in 1990 has performed extensively for over thirty years now at many Theatres, Festivals and Jazz clubs both in the UK and overseas.
