“But I Want To (SE)” is a soulful single release by Austin, TX singer/ songwriter/ pianist/ drummer AJ Smooth. Released on New Smooth Records, AJ’s music is built around the idea that “music should release the peace and groove out of each one of us.” I like that! AJ started out as a drummer at the age of eleven (playing on pots and pans with window-blind wands before his parents bought him his first drum set), and then started teaching himself to play the piano at 13. As a teen, AJ performed with choirs, drumlines, and many different bands across the south.
“But I Want To (SE)” is a song about a one-sided love relationship that is going nowhere, so the lyrics are on the sad and melancholy side. Accompanying himself on keyboard with a catchy rhythm track, AJ sings and plays a gentle R&B ballad that will appeal to a wide range of ages and musical preferences. It’s a slow-dance kind of song with a nice rhythmic groove. Check it out!
