BJ Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music-a reassuringly masculine timbre conveyed with a smattering of unique embellishments that represent a distillation of the most influential genres in pop culture. Nothing about the identifiable sound of B.J. THOMAS' voice has changed, but there's a re-energized commitment behind it. Recognizing the continued loyalty of his fans, B.J. has released his first new studio album in seven years with Curb Records. Concurrent with that project, he contributed six songs to the soundtrack and co-stared in the independent picture JAKE'S CORNER. He has also developed an album for release in Brazil, where he remains a significant musical signpost; much of it mirroring his own blue-collar background.
