. . . really "found yourself?" Where the music lifted you up, connected you with the people around you, built a bridge between you and the singers onstage? Swept up by the music, you whispered to yourself, "This is where I belong."
What would you sing? What story would you tell? How would your life change if you sang out for what you really want? Singing words you've always longed to sing. A little nervous, but feeling so alive, with your voice soaring . . . .
Even as we have all faced challenges this past year, there are some good reasons to celebrate. An original music EP, a recent review, a new student website, a holiday feature film performance, and an arts grant - all generated by our singers and studio.
Dan, a nationally award-winning a cappella singer when in college, released his first singer/songwriter EP "Day by Day" at the beginning of 2021. Head over to Spotify to hear the songs including "Can't See Past 30," "Nobody Knows My Name," and the most popular cut "Serendipity" with 92,000+ plays.
After two 2019 solo acts at The Duplex Cabaret NYC, Rose has launched her first singer/songwriter website (see Singers page). You can hear her singing in ten live performance videos, including two original songs. She is now available for gigs, weddings, or any place else you want her to sing.
See the new addition to the Reviews webpage. NJArts.net published a great article including the Anthony Tamburro Band's performance at Jersey City's Mastro's GBDD (Guitar Bar Drum Den) featuring the song "Windswept" from his debut roots rock singer/songwriter album "Alaska."
Look for JaQuita as the first back-up singer for Kurt Russell in the 2018 family / adventure movie "The Christmas Chronicles" - now on Netflix. She's visible as the first singer behind the bars in the rockin' jail scene. You can also spot her in the YouTube video from the same movie - "It's Christmas Time, Pretty Baby."
In an effort to reach out to local small businesses helping to sustain them during this difficult year, the NJEDA awarded the BJ Simon Singing Studio a COVID-19 related “Small Business” grant. Many thanks!
