About This Event
After a deeply religious upbringing and pursuing a PhD in mechanical engineering, LJR 180ed to become a rockstar. Bringing together influences of The 1975, Coldplay, Peter Gabriel, Steve Winwood, Hillsong Australia, and X Ambassadors, his unique genre blend creates a modern sound that spans the full emotional spectrum with an underlying sense of nostalgia and longing. Seamlessly blending 80s-style pop beats with alternative rock guitar solos, his music is tremendously anthemic and infectious while conveying remarkable vulnerability, speaking to those parts of the soul that yearn to heal and grow. LJR is currently releasing his 12-track debut album When the Sky Began to Fall, which he is sharing with fans one song at a time with an accompanying sci fi music video series.
