TJ James:
 
 
 
 
TJ James is an acclaimed
singer, songwriter and
recording artist based in
Canberra, Australia’s
Capital City.
TJ was born with Cerebral Palsy. He believes
‘anything’s possible’ and you only have to listen
to his music — or hear him perform — to know it is.
 
TJ is very much a mainstream artist with a
legion of fans both in Australia and overseas.
 
However, he works closely with organisations
that assist people with Cerebral Palsy. A number
of these organisations receive a percentage of
TJ’s album sales and support the promotion
of his music.
Recently, the Australian Capital Territory
Government formed a partnership with TJ
to facilitate projects to inspire young people
with disabilities to become involved in the music
business. In this way TJ continues to inspire
others that ‘anything’s possible’ …
