Within the last year AJ LeGrand has done supporting dates with David Bromberg, Rhett Miller (Old 97s), Evan Felker (Turnpike Troubadours) , Charley Crockett, Matt Costa, Bodeans, ZZ Ward, Grady Spencer and The Work, and others.
A.J. LeGrand, who was recently nominated as the KXT Listener’s Favorite Musician of 2017 (http://kxt.org/2017/12/kxt-listeners-favorite-of-2017/ ), describes his music as “simple stories accompanied by cowboy melodies.” Others have said that “his songs send [them] on an unpredictable emotional journey; exploring a myriad of genres from soul, to folk, to blues, to country rock — demonstrating his incredible gift for storytelling while telling them with the perfect amount of energy and passion.”
“My earliest memories play through my mind like a film, backed by a soundtrack of Marty Robins, Townes Van Zandt and Willie Nelson. My dad grew up ranching in Wyoming and was a farmer in New Mexico when my siblings and I were growing up, so those experiences, those tunes and those same connections with the land and with manual labor have always resonated with me.”
LeGrand has always gravitated to those “ordinary yet inspiring individuals.” This has led to a constant search for them as he’s traveled across the US and the world with the hopes of sharing his songs and hearing their stories.
