TJ Lor has been making music since she was a sophomore in high school, encouraged by her friend D’Angelo. She has been singing since she could talk. She takes inspiration from artists such as Ciara, Boyz ll Men, Usher, Justin Bieber, Kendrick Lamar, Logic, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Keyshia Cole, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, James Brown, Musiq Soulchild, Maxwell, Chris Brown, Neyo, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Destiny Childs, Aaliyah, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Brandy, and Britney Spears. Making music was primarily a hobby until the day she made the move to live independently. She has been creating and learning and honing her craft ever since then.
In addition to her interests in music, TJ has also learned to write scripts, act and even direct, through workshops offered at the Center for Hmong Arts & Talent.
