Released 2008
Watch out. Here comes TJR's Ode to America's Favorite TV Show
NOTES
I wrote this song for two reasons.

1 Know a lot of good vocalists who should be allowed to audition for this show but can't because they are over 29 years of age.

This song is for them.

by TJR

Released 2007
Released 2007
6 classic Beatles songs re-interpreted as piano instrumentals
NOTES
A Rock guitarist does a piano album?

Yes

Fans of the Alt rocker are so used to thinking of him as a guitar-slinger that many don't realize that TJR’s first instrument was the piano.

In interviews TJR has cited the piano playing of Elton John as the reason he wanted to become a musician, but that the music of the Beatles was probably the most important to him.
