Lucky 13 with PJ North

PJ North singer, songwriter and part-time race car driver...

“Without music, I would be just another guy
Music is my life
My music makes me feel like dancing
I write the songs because I want people to feel the same way I feel when I write my songs
Support music because it’s the universal language that brings everyone together!”
