EJ is the frontman to the band, Foreign Figures. A lyricist who spent a considerable amount of time releasing the secrets of his heart through music. But with the power of vulnerability and continually striving to feel heard, this accomplished pianist has found “the thing” that makes him feel special, important, and alive. He gives it all on the stage, and then kicks back and falls asleep reading while recovering.
