Bj THE CHICAGO KID:
Born, raised, and nurtured on the South Side of Chicago in the early 80's, B.J's childhood was a fusion of elements from both the streets and the church. With parents who served as choir directors,and brother/singer Aaron Sledge alongside of him, his passion and gift for creating beautiful music seemed inevitable.
"... thank you for lettin' me express my freshness" - BJ
Balancing out his drummer's skill with a soul-saturated voice and impeccable song writing ability, Bj moved to Los Angeles to further enhance his craft. As fate would have it, his new school-old soul musicianship captured the ears of noteworthy artists such as the Grammy award winning group, Mary Mary who were compelled to give Bj his first stint as a background vocalist. The demand for his unique sound & style led to other industry staples such as Stevie Wonder, Musiq SoulChild, Dave Hollister, Mario, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige , Usher, Kanye West and a host of others.
Having God as his driving force and a hustler-like-character, Bj's successes have positioned him for stardom. Word for word, note for note, fans and new listeners can't help but to gravitate towards Bj's intangibly beautiful sound.
Soul music is back. Press play.
