He has shaped the world around him with his voice, his music, his heart, and his soul. He has brought his home, New Jersey, to the world, and has been instrumental in shaping its sound. Since the early 1960s, JTs’ voice has been shaking things up. He has inspired and performed with legendary recording artists like Gary US Bonds, Little Steven, and Bruce Springsteen, who cites JT as one of his earliest and most monumental vocal inspirations. As vocalist of The Red Bank Rockers, JT had hit songs with "Woman's Got the Power" and "Saving Up" with Bruce and the late great Big Man, Clarence Clemons, of E Street Band fame. He has lived life through the scope of his music. A life that at times had been challenging and at times been full of spiritualism, JT has served for his country and his God. JT’s newest recording project, due to be released this summer, is “Dig Deep” with songwriter and producer Arlan Feiles.
