Astoria, New York (PressExposure) August 03, 2011 -- "Nomination for CD Of The Year" -- IndieMusicDigest.com (July, 2011)

Normally relegated as an "ace-in-the-hole" behind-the-scenes musical "everyman" - singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer J.J. Crowne - who has opened shows for country music superstars The Mavericks, composed and produced theatrical music and television themes for major networks including Fox, PBS and Univision, as well as produced albums for up and coming artists - finally steps out on his own with the first worldwide release of "Songs Of Innocence And Experience." This astonishing debut album features a dozen well-crafted songs recently penned by this music veteran, weaving heartfelt tales of love, loss, hope and social consciousness into a potent musical brew. The album abounds in thoughtful lyrics, lush harmonies, and catchy musical hooks, all written and arranged by J.J. - who not only sings all vocals, but plays all the instruments and produced the album entirely on his own. A true labor of love, "Songs Of Innocence And Experience" is one man's musical journey sure to pick up many passengers along the way.

The album was released on June 28th through Essential Media Group and is available on most digital outlets including iTunes. Songs from the album are already receiving airplay on radio stations in Europe and several American markets. Advance copies of the album have received excellent reviews - here's a small sample of what the press have been saying:

"Nomination for CD Of The Year...very inspirational & uplifting nature. Sometimes passionate, sometimes up-beat, never to be underestimated... you will be touched by his vocal presence & overall message..."Songs of Innocence & Experience" is a very honest & uplifting statement that personifies the human experience with messages of wisdom, hope & life itself.
