BJ Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music-a reassuringly masculine timbre conveyed with a smattering of unique embellishments. With over 70 million records sold, BJ's vocal versatility is as apparent today as it was when he recorded his first hit in 1967, "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry." A true American institution whose iconic pop, country and gospel hits defined their respective generations and now transcend them, B.J. Thomas has found a unique way to celebrate an incredible half a century in music and some 47 years since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records. The singer, a five-time Grammy and two-time Dove Award winner who is ranked in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years, invites longtime fans and newcomers alike to his living room—or more accurately, The Living Room Sessions, his debut recording for Wrinkled Records featuring intimate acoustic re-imaginings of 12 of his most renowned songs. Many of Thomas’ signature hits, from “Raindrops” to “Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” and “Lonesome,” find him seeking some level of positivity to overcome the proverbial universal battle with loneliness. He extended this theme into his successful late 70s-early 80s foray into gospel music, which earned him the first four platinum albums in the genre’s history. BJ Thomas has become one of the most recognized and respected voices of the American musical landscape. Be sure not to miss his concert this summer!
