What do you get when you cross two multi-talented, award winning, Charlotte area artists, both surviving troubles from their pasts and now telling their stories together in song…with a beautiful, “written in the stars” love story to boot? You get Stolen Hearts!
Pam Taylor and Robert Johnson Jr. have stolen each other’s hearts and are now stealing the hearts of fans, young and old, everywhere! Together, this dynamic duo is well on their way straight to the top and it’s no wonder with what these two have accomplished as individual artists!
Take a look at Robert Johnson Jr. , former founding member and front-man of local Charlotte area band, Moses Jones. Like his namesake, Robert Johnson Jr. has been to the crossroads and his songs illustrate his journey from the roots of his Westside Charlotte upbringing, to the spotlight of the Charlotte music scene. His songs reflect the days of his youth and also what every songwriter strives to do, tell a story.
Having never had a single musical lesson Robert Johnson Jr. was given his first “real” 6 String Guitar at age 10. Rarely did one see him without it. Hard work and devotion to his personal responsibilities and his God given inner musical drive has given us this talented, humble man who now, since realizing that his dream is coming true, wants to tell us thru his original songs, the stories that make him Robert Johnson Jr.
