TJ Sweeney has always been attracted to the story behind the words. The stories are what drew him to begin writing when he was 17. Hailing from a small town in upstate New York, TJ has since spent his time throughout many areas in New England but still brings a small town influence to the stories he tells through his music. Blending a mix of folk, roots, country and soul, he’s drawn attention from many across the Northeast.
TJ's debut solo EP is due for release at summer’s end.
