Cj was born in Newark, New Jersey and, at the age of eight, moved to the island of Martha's Vineyard. His first introduction to the Arts was acting in a small family theater in New York. He also enjoyed dancing and worked his way on to a Carly Simon music video as a background dancer. However, his first love has always been music. His first endeavor, in the world of music, came when someone had heard him sing and suggested he send a demo tape to a music producer in California. Shortly, thereafter, he received an airplane ticket to L.A. and his musical career began. His credits include: one of the writer's and collaborator's on th R.& B. hit by Chuckii Booker, titled 'Games' which went to #1 on Billboard. He was a background singer on Vanessa Williams 'Right Stuff' album, which earned him a gold record. He also recorded his own album for K.M.A.records titled 'Luv's Invitation', which included the Billboard hit single 'You are my starship'. He was one of the singers and toured with the Tony Rich Project. He also sang backup and toured with Mariah Carey and other various artists. His T.V. credits include: Jay Leno, David Letterman and the Arsenio Hall shows. He's performed on M.T.V., B.E.T. as well as VH1. After a short sabbatical, he's back in a big way! As fate would have it, while singing in a local club, he was introduced to John Jannis, owner of Grape Escape Music, a local recording studio on the island. Once he shared some of his newest music tracks developed by his long time friend and music collaborator, Darron Williams, John became eager to start working with him and the rest is history... His newest release titled 'I let heaven go' expresses his passion for something we all strive for-LOVE. Though his music is original, fresh and new, it stimulates the senses by bringing the listener back to a time when music touched your Heart and Soul.
