Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross-pollinates genres including rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new age, classical, and even country. Inevitably, E.J. says it best himself: “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day…. If it doesn’t have that, it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”

Tickets go on sale to AMP members, Tuesday, March 9, 2022 at 10 am with member promo code. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 11, 2022 at 10 am to the general public.
