AJ Croce - Maybe I'm Amazed




A.J. Croce lost his father (music legend Jim Croce) to a tragic plane crash and his eyesight to a brain tumor. From the ages of four to ten, he gradually regained sight in his left eye, learned to play the piano, fell in love with the music of Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, and came into possession of his multi-platinum recording artist father’s weathered songbook and guitar. Raised by his mom Ingrid near the Pacific Ocean in San Diego, California, A.J. began writing songs and performing locally. During the recording of his album, Fit To Server, he blew out his powerful voice and had to learn to sing all over again.

Maybe I'm Amazed is a great cover of the McCartney/Wings song. The song is off his 2006 release, Cantos which is a phenomenal album where Croce strips down his songs and focuses more on the piano and his voice. The retro aspect of this album goes so far as to list each instrument utilized by make, model, and year.

AJ is an amazing artist. If you ever have the chance to see him perform live...do not miss it! His debut record is still my favorite of his, but I have enjoyed everything after as well. Great pick, Eric!
