“Don’t try to fit in. Being different is beautiful. Among other things,
it means you’ve got the sense to think for yourself in a world where
everyone else is trying to be everyone else.”

And so spawned the IMAJ album. This appropriately self-titled debut by “Country Darling” Imaj is all at once country yet genre-defying. Reflecting the anomaly that she is, this album has a native heart, childlike freedom and old soul. Imaj gracefully blends traditional, folk, bluegrass, Beatles-pop and operatic war cries with lyrics and a pure vocal range as wide and deep as her spirit.

Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner,” a fan favorite and Imaj’s first single, is the love child of her hippie-hillbilly nature that will take you for a smooth yet wild ride on a peace train. You can always tell which songs she wrote. They each have a distinct signature about them with outlaw characteristics like “Darkness” shining light on the beauty of black and doubt; “Train Song” ran some of Nashville’s most seasoned musicians off the tracks; and “Passport” a tune with a backstory and vocal range that maintains a reputation for giving all fans alike goosebumps.

It’s her clever balance of unusual songwriting and pure vocal tone that makes Imaj like a rare painting fans want to win at an auction and frame for all to see. Imaj is a true artist, with that “IT” factor that industry giants are continuously on the prowl for. She’s not only a great vocalist with cross-over appeal, she’s an artist that has the most sought after trait in the industry: longevity. Snuggle her up with the greats; she’ll fit just fine next to your Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson and Beatles records.


IMAJ was invited to Nashville, TN to float in the CMA Fest Kick-Off parade as well as perform in the 2012 CMA Fest. She’s headlined such venues as House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Six Flags Over Texas, Dr. Pepper Arena and her story has been featured on Good Morning Texas, CW33 & Pink Memo, ESPN Radio and Channel 8 evening news. IMAJ has toured with multi-platinum country singers, Collin Raye and Billy Dean as well as opened for noted artists LeAnn Rimes, Clay Walker, Lorrie Morgan, Gretchen Wilson, Neal McCoy and Kip Moore. She is currently on a Country Radio Tour. Listen for her on a station near you!

I imagine we all think about it. I mean, it is an inevitability of life. But for some reason humans who possess the gifts of reflection and understanding, never want to talk about it. Yet there we are the moment we are born. And here we are now, descending further and further towards death.

Just want to take a moment to say thank you: we’ve been on tour in support of what I’ve come to know as our “heroes in action” who go to bat for us right here in our backyard! The Holland Firefighters (Holland Civic Center), Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 97 (The DeltaPlex Arena) and the Township Association (Jackson HS)! I’m sure I can speak for all of us touring when I say, I appreciate you so much! We are having a blast for such a great cause!!! See y’all in Boyne City, Michigan Woot Woot! ♥

Memory Care Unit Jam

February 2, 2012 — Leave a comment

As a volunteer for Grace Hospice, I sang at a memory care unit today at Vickery Towers Assisted Living (Dallas, TX) and had so much fun with everyone! I started out singing my originals on guitar then we all began free-styling together. We went into classics like “The Sound of Music” “Blue Moon” “Part of Your World” ~ Disney songs and the like. We seriously just jammed out to whatever we could think of and we had a blast! Singing with these guys reminded me of fun times with family. It also reminded me that life doesn’t have to be as complicated as we all make it, you know. Sometimes all you need is a guitar and some friends… and life is good. (: ♥

Stop Bullying Now

I have a family member who is learning disabled and has been bullied his whole life. There’s a helplessness that comes over you when loved ones who are prone to being bullied have to go out into the real world because people can be so cruel and impatient and you can’t protect them from everyone. But there is something that you can do. You, yourself, can be kind to others. You can culture your family and friends, teach them to celebrate our differences rather than condemn them. You can extend love to all people. Because a society which produces bullies is a society where people are not being loved but hurt so they grow to hurt others. Heal our world. Love each other.
