“… high-energy romp through gospel, soul and funk-infused landscapes…” – Relix
AJ Ghent [ j-ent ] and his Singing Guitar are all about positive energy: musically, physically and spiritually. He takes his family’s heirloom that was created in the 1930s, the “Sacred Steel Tradition” and brings it to a broader audience. Continuing in his family tradition, AJ can literally make his guitar sound like a voice. AJ and his Singing Guitar have reached millions worldwide through viral videos.
