Tj Conner

Born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in the small historic town of Robbins, TJ Conner has been in the music business for over 35 years. He has written several plays as well as songs for other artists. TJ has also performed live at some of Chicago’s top venues such as The Green Dolphin and The Red Finn Café. TJ has served as a church musician for over 20 years. Combining Gospel, R & B and Jazz is what gives TJ his compositional creativity. “All of these styles of music reverberate through my mind, and, without trying, these styles get mixed into most of my compositions. However, I try very hard not to let one style dominate the other.”

TJ is a high school special education teacher by day and a musician most other times. Working, writing music, and being a father and grandfather can be quite time consuming. His youngest, 6 year old daughter, Kiyah, appears on the Assorted Flavors album. “Kiyah is my number one fan. She sits next to me while I write, and although she is just 6 years old, she has great rhythm and great music memory. She has memorized every song on both albums and hums along each time they are played!”

TJ would like for all of his fans to share his music with others. He strongly feels that everyone can feel something through one or more of his songs. TJ currently resides in the Chicago area.
