SJ performed for the Melbourne Art Festival in 2014, following a national splash with the release of his first full length LP, "Coffee: Strong Brew Edition" and a live DVD album entitled "Coffee: Unfiltered. SJs 2012 radio single Let Me Be peaked at #32 on the U.S. adult contemporary radio charts, and was regularly spun in over 50 U.S. markets (AAA, Americana, A/C), earning his song status as the most active independent artist on national radio. Since then, SJ has headlined nationally and opened for acts such as Pentatonix, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and Ed Sheeran at SunFest Music Festival.
Since 2010, SJ's releases have won or earned nominations for over 25 independent music awards in the U.S. and U.K., and his first single, "I Like You", earned a Top 10 spot on U.S. adult contemporary radio charts. His songs have been licensed multiple times for use in TV, film and commercials around the world. In December 2011, SJ was nominated by Sirius XM The Coffeehouse as a Discovery of the Year and played a special radio performance at Sirius XM studios in New York City. That same year, he won the Best Folk/Acoustic Emerging Artist Award at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards in Los Angeles and performed at the awards on the main stage. SJ is officially endorsed by Taylor Guitars, Sennheiser, Hercules Stands, Gator Cases, Future Sonics, and Elixir Strings.
Most of all, SJ enjoys writing and sharing original music and playing smaller intimate settings, which all starts from his home studio he calls the AcoustiShak. It's equally important to him to spend time with his family and friends, help other acoustic-centric musicians through the company he founded, Acoustic Soul Entertainment Group, and "pay it forward" through his charitable concept One Acoustic World.
