CJ Solar recently released his debut EP called “Hard One To Turn Down” from Sea Gayle Records. You can find the EP on iTunes by clicking here.
Solar’s new EP is a mix of Southern/Outlaw Country influenced songs that reminisce about anything from booze to Country Life. If you’re looking for a reference artist, we would say his music is a mix of The Cadillac Three meets Chris Stapleton, meaning it is refreshing and a must listen.
A little more about Solar from his website:
Louisiana native and country artist CJ Solar is quickly making a name for himself in Music City, USA. Hailing from Baton Rouge, CJ moved to Nashville in 2010 to attend Belmont University. A few months shy of graduation, CJ inked a publishing deal with Sea Gayle Music—two time ASCAP Country Publisher of the Year founded by Brad Paisley and Chris DuBuois.
CJ is a “triple threat” artist: a gifted singer, guitarists, and songwriter. He has writer credits on Sony Music Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann’s current single “Blue Bandana”, as well on other songs by Jerrod and Justin Moore.
CJ’s debut single, “Tall Boy” is available now on spotify with the whole EP “Hard One To Turn Down” coming out April 15, 2016 While not writing or in the studio, CJ takes his high energy show on the road—including stops at Big Barrel Festival, CMA Fest, Bi-Mart Williamette Country Music Festival, and opening dates for artist such as The Cadillac Three, Michael Ray, Randy Rogers Band, and Tyler Farr.
