AJ Ghent is a musician hailing from Fort Pierce, Florida. “Everything in our house was music,” Ghent recalls, and music has truly been running through his family for generations; such as his great uncle Willie Eason, the creator of the “Sacred Steel Tradition”, and his grandfather Henry Nelson, the founder of the “Sacred Steel” rhythmic guitar style. This style is played by many names today, such as Robert Randolph, The Campbell Brothers, and more. AJ began his music career in earnest at West Palm Beach, FL. There he spent many nights exploring a rich range of genres, from hip-hop to R&B. However, AJ was in search of something more, a style that was uniquely his own. After years of practice and roaming the music scene in various places, he was able to pin down a sound. One that he knew would serve him well for the years to come; one that combined elements from R & B, pop, hip-hop, blues and rock: Neo Blues. This musical fusion takes art and skill to master, something that AJ has spent his whole life perfecting. The energy and passion which resonates from AJ’s music, from the strum of the guitar, to the pounding rhythm of the drums, to the outstanding lyrics, is sure to be felt by any crowd. AJ aims to create an unforgettable experience for music lovers, with the hopes of taking them to a musical paradise. AJ has performed alongside Gov’t Mule and The Allman Brothers, opened for Robert Cray and was featured on Zac Brown’s 2013 Grohl Sessions Vol. 1 alongside Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters).
