Biography
A.J. Case grew up on the hard streets of Sumter, South Carolina, in a part of town better known as “The Southside”- a drug infested dynasty where you live and die by the code of the streets. Raised by a single mother, A.J. has one brother and two sisters, one of which became a victim to a life of drugs and the call of the streets. By the time he had reached his early teen years, A.J. lost those closest to him, including many childhood friends, due to drugs and gang related activity.
Little did he know, a chance encounter with close friends Teddy and James, both of whom were actively involved in a band, would save A.J. from the crime and death that was inevitable on the streets he was raised. Fueling the already eager interest AJ Case had for music, Teddy and James taught A.J. the “art of music making.”
Soon thereafter, A.J. became involved in several genres of music . As early as 13 and 14 years old A. J. was already making a living by working for the publishing company Wild Child Entertainment as a songwriter. For three years he shared and developed his writing skills with other young musicians .
He would soon find himself on his own as he made the move to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A.J. labored at several odd jobs as he started his own songwriting company Pulse Entertainment with partners Becky Hemmo and William Masure. They worked in the songwriter market selling songs to many reputable artists within the industry for the several years. After Pulse Entertainment closed its doors, A. J. took two years off from songwriting.
Influenced by the depth and poetry of rap and hip hop and the ability to paint a picture with words A.J. began writing short rhymes, thinking of a solo career in rap music

before meeting his business partner, Jeff Motsinger.
In 2001, A.J. Case met Jeff Motsinger, an eager artist manager who was currently working with a pop group called “D!verc!ty” while working on the group’s album entitled “Now & Forever.” After the group dismantled, Case and Motsinger would become business partners in what would be one of the most active underground music companies in Myrtle Beach, S.C., “Silver Sun Productions.”
A.J. Case would then in 2004 begin producing his debut album entitled “N’ the Grand Scheme of Thingz” which would be released and promoted in the southeastern United States and various other locations overseas. In 2006, after the successful promotion and release of A.J. Case’s debut album, A.J. and Jeff would decide to begin preparations for the follow-up album. One night, while out at a local establishment, “Broadway Louie’s”, A.J. and Jeff would be pleasantly surprised at the performance of one musician whose stage name would later become “Shane C.”
A.J. Case approached Shane C about doing a feature on a track on his upcoming album, which would soon earn Shane C a permanent position on the Silver Sun Productions team as Case’s hype man.
A.J. would soon complete his crew with the addition of singer, Corie Claridy, who expressed A.J.’s passion and dedication to the industry and lifestyle accustomed to by the staff of Silver Sun Productions.
With an incredible team of supporters and remarkable talent, A.J. Case would soon finish his second album, “Lifted” in late 2007. With the release of A.J. Case’s videos: “Lifted,” "Lights off,” “After the Rain,” fans of A.J. Case continue to be loyal, and valued members of his team.
Over the years, since his first introduction into the music industry, to the most recent videos he has released, A.J. Case has developed a notable, trademark sound and a wide market for the lyrical genius he prevails. His songs and lyrical style are full of realism and expression he so richly evokes about life, love, pain and redemption we all relate to. The world waits and “Lifted” becomes the NEW trend within the urban industry of music.
