Born and raised in Queens, New York, 25 year-old TJ Fox has been fully committed to music since the age of 13. While in high school, TJ started performing throughout New York as a singer/songwriter and quickly realized his ability for entertaining others. Now a weekly act at bars and restaurants, TJ is concentrating on writing and collaboration with the hopes of continuing to grow as an artist and songwriter.
Full of beauty, hope, and uplifting empowerment, “Live It Right”, the new single by TJ Fox is perfect for almost every setting. Be it relaxing in the evening, driving down the highway, top down on a gorgeous sunny day, or curled up by the window watching rain fall – this song will set your spirit on fire.
TJ has a knack for lovely lyrics and colorful melodies, and reveal these talents here. He never drifts into self-indulgence or monotony; a rarity among his peers.
The fast-moving track jets off after folksy lead-in and finds TJ Fox waxing on our finite existence in this world and the goals one needs to reach in succeeding at achieving anything tangible in this life – “You only got one chance to be alive. Never knowing it’s a last dance, don’t close your eyes. And just keep fighting the fight, chasing the light. Always have your dreams in sight. This is your time to live your life…and live it right.”
With a winning melody and refreshingly inspiring lyrics, the song is a fine autobiographical indicator of what TJ Fox wants to achieve.
The track, though perhaps introspective-sounding on the first listen, maintains a strong universal message. This is not just about TJ Fox on his grind, attempting to take his best shot at crowning his achievements, but it is a powerful suggestion to all of us to do the right things now, as we only have one life to live.
You will love the man’s voice as it’s so good, and so spiritually nourishing, to hear a singer who actually sings, and clearly puts his heart and soul into doing so. It’s also good to listen to a song that speaks about the positive, empowering aspects of life rather than the usual, the predictable and the tired derogatory themes so often found in pop music.
There is sincerity and depth in TJ Fox’s lyrics and “Live It Right” leaves you wanting more. The track showcases great musicianship, an excellent arrangement, and superb production for a solid pop-rock record that wouldn’t for one second be uncomfortable on any top40 chart regardless of the company.
