A J Wander Delivers A Stellar Debut Single With 'Time Out'
Lockdown has been a negative situation for the majority, but in the case of London singer-songwriter AJ Wander its been something of an epiphany. Unable to perform in the piano bars & hotels around the UK that paid his bills, he found focus in his own music and creativity – the result is his debut single, 'Time Out'.
A painful tale of heartbreak is given an uplifting edge and a big singalong chorus, with song writing of substance, melodic piano and creative maturity. His delivery is emotional, his vocal both beautiful and assured; “I admit it’s tough, sacrifices have been made, for the flicker of the light that we shared between the shade…”. There are echoes of Ed Sheeran and Jamie Cullum here, it is in fact produced by Brad Mair (Dean Lewis, Jamie Cullum, Kygo). "Time Out" certainly has all the hallmarks of a hit!
AJ apparently grew up in a musical household, the solid foundations of a pianist father and a musical education including the Beatles, Carole King, The Eagles and Elton John has stood him in good stead, with a honed ear for melody and big heart for lyrics. AJ Wander is undoubtedly one to watch, and 'Time Out' is a stellar debut single.
