On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, musician AJ Wander releases video for his new single, Blue Lights, described as David Gray meets James Blake.
English singer/songwriter AJ Wander has released a poignant video for his new single, Blue Lights. AJ confides on the release, “I wrote ‘Blue Lights’ after seeing someone overdose opposite my old flat. The song is me hoping that he still has a spark of hope left, that it was just a call for help.”
AJ Wander has found success with over 4 million streams on his debut single “Time Out” and has been added to such official Spotify playlists as Home Again and Fresh Finds Pop. He has received acclaim from the likes of Earmilk and Atwood Magazine among others. His music is a cinematic blend of pop, rock and folk.
AJ Wander started his journey in the suburbs of south-east London. The son of a pianist, he began honing his unique musical sensibility at an early age.
After living in Australia for several years in his youth, he returned to the UK to pursue a formal education at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. While enrolled, he joined indie band Tors, performing in front of thousands of people as part of the fast growing group.
AJ’s Music Career
Heeding the call to further explore his own creative identity as a solo artist, Wander departed Tors after 2 years. Diving deeper into his roots as a pianist, he built a fledgling career performing covers at piano bars and hotels across the UK, developing a ubiquitous playing style while garnering acclaim on a regional level as a rising star entertainer.
As the world reopened, Wander began to attract attention from industry leaders. He landed a management and distribution deal with USA based firm Elevation Group, along with a publishing agreement through BDi Music. His debut single “Time Out” established a style rooted in nuanced piano playing and vocals that have been compared to Lewis Capaldi and Dean Lewis.
With over 5 million streams and editorial playlist placements across Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music and Apple Music, his catalog of singles continues to grow and attract legions of new fans. His most recent track “When You Say I Love You” debuted early this year, with more music planned throughout 2022.
