ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JJ Strydom is a new name breathing life into the SA country scene. Born in the North West and currently based in Cape Town he is fast becoming a crowd favourite at shows.
With his CD, JJ Strydom, he makes it very clear that he CAN sing country music. It features songs like “Ek Glo”, “The Country Way”, “Someday I’m Gonna be Your Cowboy”, “You and Tequila” and “Angel” to mention a few.
Few people know that JJ was in a very serious motorbike accident not too long ago. 2 Years ago it took 9 operations to get him back into action. He was unable to speak, sing, play guitar or do anything that most of us take for granted. His face was badly injured.
This was however not enough to stop this young entertainer from reaching his dream of becoming a world famous Country Singer. He laughs when asked where it all began for him. “Well I grew up on a ranch so the only life that listened to me was the horses, cattle and pigs”, he jokes. Not even his primary school choir teacher thought that he could sing. It was not until his sister heard him sing, one day, that a human gave him positive encouragement.
This led to him being pulled out of bed one evening and having to sing to the family. From there he started singing in the local pub and the rest is history.
Like you have read above JJ is not somebody who is easy perturbed by adversity to reach his goals. Other strong characteristics include a huge sense of responsibility, a healthy intellect and the ability to learn very quickly.
Examples of this are the fact that he could play the guitar after only a year’s training, the fact that he ran the family ranch at the tender age of 9 and the manner in which he learnt to ride horses. He was presented with a horse and told that only if he can ride bareback will he receive a saddle.
His determination and all round abilities is further highlighted by his fighting skills. Yup – do not challenge this man to a dual!! JJ represented South Africa in Karate for 6 years. Having received his black belt at 18 years old, he went on to represent South Africa from his 16th birthday up until his 22nd. He received his second degree black belt at 23.
This was however not enough! Kick Boxing was the next challenge. Need I mention that he received a black belt in this too? JJ had 4 pro fights as a light-heavyweight and won them all. 3 Of the victories came by way of technical knock outs and 1 by a 1st round knock down. From here he went on to do cage fighting, wining all 3 fights that he participated in.
From the interview it was very clear that JJ is a winner. The size of his dreams will determine the level of success that he will enjoy in just about anything he wants too.
Cape Town is a richer place having a dynamic role model like JJ Strydom in its midst.
