In an era filled with one-dimensional pop acts and pre-packaged “rock” bands, a new sheriff has arrived. But CJ Orazi does not crash onto the scene, adding to the deafening chorus of acts screaming “look at me!” With his guitar on his back and his heart on his sleeve, he smokes into town. Like dust, with boots on.
With guitar chops honed in the big knife fight known as rock & roll and lyrics earnest enough to make Danny Trejo shed a tear, CJ Orazi brings a fresh take on the singer/songwriter genre. His songs expose a rawness that no amount of tattoos and cigarette smoke can cover up. Heartbreak and angst make for great music, but the realness of Orazi’s delivery sets him apart.
At once bluesy, rock & roll, and a bit old-school country, Orazi evokes an emotional response through his music that Taylor Swift only dreams about. Rather than use the music as an escape, Orazi wants you to feel what he feels, and it turns out you want to feel it, too.
Armed with his Gibson Explorer, an acoustic, and a cigar box guitar, Orazi has criss-crossed the U.S. five times in search of kindred souls looking to hear his brand of genuine, heart-felt songwriting. His obsession with performing has connected him with countless fans; from men who want to be him to women afraid he’ll write a song about them. A moment with Orazi will make you feel as though he has been there with you all along; through the ups and downs and twists and turns of your own life. And when that moment is over, his voice will haunt you until you hear him again.

if you don't, tell your enemies it's the best thing you ever heard.
