TJ FOX EP: "The Last Good Memory"

Last time we spoke to TJ Fox he was in the midst of finding himself as an artist and had just released his first single "1000 Reasons".  Fast forward to now, TJ has just released his very first EP called "The Last Good Memory" and is now ready to show the world what he is made of.  Check out this Q&A we had with TJ about his debut EP:

The title of your album is "The Last Good Memory" and I know that is also the name of one of your songs.  Why did you choose this as the title of your album?

"Last Good Memory is a very special song to me.  It reminds me that there is always some good found within anything that is bad, that there is always a good thing to come out of a bad situation, no matter if it is with a relationship, or another part of life. That is why I chose to name the album after this song."  

What was the biggest learning experience for you though out the process of making this album?

"The biggest learning experience for me is the experience itself.  Going through the writing process, recording process, getting my first EP on iTunes, seeing what the business is about as a whole.  I have learned a lot and have grown as a songwriter and performer, with the support of family and friends along the way, as well as my producer Robbie G and everyone associated with this project that helped make it what it is."

What is your favorite song on the album and why?

"Although I love all my songs, because well, they are mine, I tend to lean towards Third From the Sun and Last Good Memory more often.  Third From the Sun is about how we, as people, as mankind, have to stop the violence and ridiculous crimes in this world.  As the lyrics read, "We are the last ones who can believe in ourselves", we are the only ones that can make a change in this world.  We need to come together in love instead of hate, and the world will be a better place to live in."

What is coming up next for you? Do you have any shows coming up? and if so, where?

"As far as shows, now that my EP is out I will look to begin playing at venues aimed towards live music and showcasing artists.  For now though, I play regularly anywhere from Manhattan to the Hamptons about 4-5 times a week, which can be tracked on my website"

Lynx Dedicates a Bachata to People with Special Needs

It's not every day that you encounter music that goes beyond the message of love and heartbreak, to dig deeper into societal issues.  Bachata artist and composer, Lynx, however, has broken the mold with his latest single “Somos Uno”.  The song is focused on the theme of love and equality for people with disabilities, reminding the listener that people with special needs can reach new heights just like anyone else. 

The topic is one that comes as second nature for Lynx, whose youngest brother is blind and autistic.  The singer recalls moments from his childhood in which people would stare at his brother, and says that he has even encountered people who have family members with special needs and are ashamed of it.  Lynx’s goals in releasing “Somos Uno” were simple: to show people they shouldn’t be ashamed of a disabled family member, to let those with special needs realize that they are no less than anyone else, and to give those who have not encountered someone with special needs a unique perspective on the matter. 

With the single being out for almost a week now, Lynx says he is impressed with the amount of love and support he has been receiving from people in regards to the song.  However, the most impactful reactions have been the emotional responses from parents and family members who have a loved one with special needs—in the short time that it has been out, the song has touched the hearts of many and there is still so much more to come. 

“Somos Uno” is the last single to be released from Lynx’s upcoming debut album set to release sometime in November.  The album is sure to make a splash with its unique approach and style, and more announcements will be made soon with further details.  Until then, fans can enjoy Lynx’s other singles: “M├íscara”, “Mi Debilidad”, “Como Antes”, and, of course “Somos Uno”.
