Presented by Cascade Blues Association
TJ Wong (Timothy James) is what many would call a phenomenon. At the age of 20 he has already achieved accomplishments that many musicians never will in their career. With two albums under his belt, a third on the way, and an endorsement from Brazil’s largest guitar manufacturer, he is on his way. Not to mention the fact that he has been to the International Blues Challenge three times — twice as a youth representative for the Cascade Blues Association, with a duo in 2017 and the Portland Blues Revival in 2018, as well as in 2022 after winning the Journey to Memphis competition. Combine all that with the excellent musicianship of Timmer Blakely (Bo Diddly, Ry Cooder) and Chandler Bowerman (The Diamonds, Ben Rice), and you have the TJ Wong Trio. Delivered directly to you is a mix of blues and rock that is unique, and a sound that is new, but calls on classics for inspiration.
