The TJ Project for Out­ra­geous Sexy In Black

The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - JUICY LOCAL GOSSIP! -

This week 2nite Mag­a­zine presents the 2nd of the BIG 3 tak­ing to the stage this year at “Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black" brought to you by The Wave 94.5 and ti­tle spon­sor Dig­i­cel. It is go­ing down "Fan­tas­tic Fri­day" – Car­ni­val Fri­day July 15, 2016.

The event will fea­ture three big Soca bands and a num­ber of Saint Lu­cian and re­gional Soca per­form­ers. Among the big bands is the TJ Project with Ted­dyson John as the front­line vo­cal­ist.

Ted­dyson John known in the mu­sic cir­cles as sim­ply TJ, has been in­volved in mu­sic as far back as he can re­mem­ber. His first record­ing as a young boy was a song called “Sweeter,” a Gospel song. This was no co­in­ci­dence since TJ grew up in a Chris­tian house­hold and in Church. His love for mu­sic deep­ened, sur­rounded by the likes of his brother Fran­cis John – a jazz mu­si­cian and other friends in the busi­ness. Not only did he grow up to es­tab­lish him­self as a pow­er­house vo­cal­ist, but also an as­tute drum­mer. In 2007 TJ segued from Jazz and Gospel and delved into groovy Soca. The com­pe­ti­tion was held for the first time in Saint Lu­cia and TJ rose vic­to­ri­ous with the song “Com­ing Down De Road.” He won the crown again in 2012 with “Land of Wine.”

The fol­low­ing year TJ put to­gether his band the TJ Project in prepa­ra­tion for the launch of Love.Pas­sion.Mu­sic- his very own con­cert and CD. The event was a ma­jor suc­cess –prompt­ing his team to mark it as a sig­na­ture event on Saint Lu­cia’s car­ni­val cal­en­dar since then. The Love.Pas­sion.Mu­sic move­ment has since mor­phed into U4RIA- TJ & the TJ project an­nual car­ni­val con­cert.

For Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black 2016 TJ will be bring­ing all the hits in­clud­ing his big­gest to date- “Allez.”

Other hits in­clude “Wine on me,” “Sweet Soca Mu­sic”, “Backa” as well as his two groovy soca win­ning songs among many oth­ers.
