Who is AJ Smith?
An Indie/Pop singer-songwriter who has opened for Lindsey Stirling and The Eagles. A classically-trained multi-instrumentalist who served with the National Symphony Orchestra. A former engineering student with a Masters Degree in songwriting, mentored by the late Glenn Frey. And the latest member of The Rocks Management family.
If that description makes you curious, then you can get to know AJ a little more at this link: www.therocksmanagement.com/ajsmith, where we are thrilled to share a sneak listen of his new tracks - including ‘Cooler’, ‘Mt Everest’, and ‘Human’, co-written with multi-Platinum and Grammy-winning songwriter Jenson Vaughan (Kygo/Ellie Goulding/Madonna/Britney Spears) - plus AJ’s moody interpretation of Sir Elton’s classic “Rocket Man”.
The Queens-based, Denver-born artist has been quietly building his audience one fan at a time, connecting digitally across via Instagram and YouTube, or in the flesh at Sofar Sounds and college shows across the country (with a string of new college dates added for fall/winter 2019-2020).
