A.J. Croce, son of legendary singer/songwriter Jim Croce, has over the years built up a very solid and critically respected catalog of roots rock with period-perfect vintage production.

Croce was blinded at age four by a brain tumor, gradually regaining vision in his left eye. It was during that time that he began playing piano and steeping himself in the canon of classic R&B, blues, folk and rock.

He has an undeniable knack for writing the sort of bouncy, piano-led pop nuggets that recall The Beatles, Harry Nilsson and the like. "Coraline," from Croce's latest album, "Cage of Muses," has a great "Hey Jude" kind of vibe.
