“One of our greatest young songwriters” - David Wild of Rolling Stone
Born Adrian James Croce on September 28th 1971. The son of legendary singer/songwriter Jim Croce, A.J. lost his father to a 1973 plane crash. Soon after his father’s death, he lost his sight, and began playing the piano. He regained partial vision at age 10. Croce began performing professionally at age 12. A.J. got his first break at 18 when B.B. King heard him play and asked him to join him on tour as a support act. The next year A.J. was signed to Private Music and made his first recording the self titled “A.J. Croce”.
Willie Nelson has said of his music, "A.J. Croce has wisdom beyond his years. With his music, he represents his generation with a profound sense of honesty in his lyrics and quality in his delivery. The future of entertainment is safe in his hands!”
