BJ The Chicago Kid: from the Midwest to the West Coast
Bryan James Sledge, who earned the nickname BJ from a young age, was born in Chicago to a family of church choir directors. It was somewhat inevitable, then, that music would play a large part in his life, but it wasn’t until after attending a Janet Jackson concert that BJ knew he wanted to pursue a career in the music industry. He moved to the city of Los Angeles and spent years earning his stripes as a backing singer, providing vocals for a number of established artists and going on to write songs for them too. Attention began growing when the singer started releasing mixtapes of his own material, with "A Taste of Chicago" (2009), "The New Beginning" (2009) and "The Life of Love's Cupid" (2011) all creating a buzz around the Chicago kid on the West Coast. After his first independently released album, "Pineapple Now-Laters", in 2012, BJ was signed to the legendary Motown label and recognised as one of the most talented singers and exciting talents around.

So much more than a featured artist
When it comes to soul and R&B singers, there are few who have the soulful talent of BJ and even fewer who have the sort of rap game credentials he has earned. He has worked with some of the biggest names around, from Kendrick Lamar to Kanye West and Casey Veggies to Chance the Rapper. The warmth and depth of BJ’s talents make him a vintage voice with a contemporary perspective, providing classic vocals alongside modern rap without feeling out of place. His 2016 album, "In My Mind", earned acclaim from all corners of the music world, heralded as the return of authentic soul music that had been missing since the golden age of the 1960s and 70s. BJ isn’t only a gifted vocalist but also a student of music who can just as easily provide a catchy hook for the hottest rapper around as he can flip a soul classic and make it his own. To discover his talents for yourself and be at one of his upcoming concerts, simply buy or sell your BJ The Chicago Kid tickets right here on StubHub.
