When I was given the chance to speak with A.J. Croce, Jim Croce’s son we got some pretty interesting facts and tips from him. He likes any type of music as long as it is soul music and he started playing the piano and turned to many other instruments and he still takes lessons to this day. He loves meeting new people when he is on the road however, he doesn’t like that there is never any time to check out landmarks. He states that there he can not choose just one song as a favorite but advises upcoming artists listen to as many songs as you can from country to pop and it helps you get an idea of how and what to write with your music. There are a lot of types of music to work with like when your painting you have a lot of colors to choose from. “There’s really no precious thing about song writing or I wouldn’t be able to continue to write every day.” In my opinion if he were to quit writing songs then so many good songs would be lost.
