Uncle CeeJay

Connail Johnson or "Uncle CeeJay" was born in 1962 in rural Soperton, Ga. He is, however, no newcomer to the music industry. Music became an integral part of his life while attending high school at Miami Northwestern Senior High in South Florida. In 1979 Uncle CeeJay (or Unc’) enlisted in the U.S Army following graduation and served his country for six years. Unc’ married at the early age of 19, a home owner and a proud father by the time he was 22. In 1986 Unc’ turned in his M16 assault weapon and picked up a microphone, becoming the lead vocalist for a local group called “The Chocolate Buttermilk Band” of Fayetteville N.C. Unc’ has opened and appeared onstage with such musical legends as B.B. King; Archie Bell; Millie Jackson; Evelyn Champagne King; Yarborough & Peoples; Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds & The Deele, and many many more. After touring the vast majority of America, and enduring a two-year battle with heroin addiction, Unc’ decided to venture back to his home roots of South Florida. A change of lifestyle and a newfound relationship with the Lord brought about a different approach towards his musical presentation. Unc’s music has a mature message that is designed to speak into the hearts of the hearers. Quoting from Uncle CeeJay…”I don’t have as many years in front of me as I have behind me, so LET’S DO THIS!!” Unc’s life has been carefully seasoned and is now ready to be served to the masses.
