Hello. My name is PJ Bond, how are you? Well, I hope. I am a man who’s spent the better part of the last 15 years in basements, tour vans, on floors, and in and out of a variety of situations that all seem to begin and end with making and playing music. I am incredibly blessed to have been part of quite a few bands that I hugely appreciate, respect and love. Currently, however, I am playing music alone, under my own name, and singing songs that I believe in.
On April 15, 2009 I started a project called the year of a thousand roommates, before which I gave up my home and most of my possessions, and took to the road in hopes of finding something exciting and important. I most definitely found both, and in doing so, made some of the greatest friends I could ever ask for, strengthened some old relationships, hurt a few, and saw the world, literally and figuratively. You can read about some of the adventures here.
Here is a basic idea of what I’ve been doing recording wise:
1997 - tencentlotto [products - self released]
1998 - tencentlotto [superman… - self released]
1999 - pj bond [acoustic demo - self released]

some of these records are for sale. others, you can email me about, but the early ones are pretty much out of print, and definitely juvenile.
