Artist bio


J.J. Cale (born John Weldon Cale on December 5, 1938, in Oklahoma City, USA) is a Grammy Award-winning American singer-songwriter and musician. Cale is one of the originators of the Tulsa Sound, a loose genre drawing on blues, rockabilly, country, and jazz influences. He continues to be best-known for writing two songs that Eric "Slowhand" Clapton made famous: "After Midnight" and "Cocaine." Cale released his first single in 1958, although it was not until 1972 that his first album, Naturally, was released.
