With a throwback baritone vocal reminiscent of Joe Williams and the scatting ability of Eddie Jefferson with just a little touch of Al Jarreau, MrTJ Miller is set to burst upon the scene with his debut single, “Scatman’s Fish & Grits,” a Christmas song on his own label Unda The Hat Records. A native of Monroe Louisiana, MrTJ graduated from Grambling State University with a degree in vocal music and is a Phi Mu Alpha Fraternity member. As a singer, he has sung in church choirs, operas, jazz big bands, and theater productions. MrTJ has been singing for a long time and is finally ready to release his first project.
MrTJ has authored a book, a murder mystery called Murder By The Collar, and has been in the music industry on the business side for more than 20 years; now it’s his turn to sing and shine. He has released his first musical project, Scatman’s Fish & Grits just in time for Christmas. It is a fun, nontraditional Christmas song that is sure to get everybody moving their body, bobbing their heads, and asking; who brings Fish & Grits to a Christmas party? The song features Shelley Carrol on Tenor Sax, Eric Willis on piano and organ, and Paul Piper on drums.
