About Tonya Jaci Rae aka TJ

Tonya Jaci Rae / TJ Is a Singer, Musician, Songwriter, Published Author...Renaissance Woman

Award Winning Singer, Female Vocalist of the Year, #1 Best Selling Author (Fireside / Simon and Schuster), Indie Crusader and Top Radio Show Host. No wonder they call her a renaissance woman!

It would have been enough - more than enough - for anyone with a great voice and a dream. Win the Golden Music Awards "Female Vocalist of the Year"...earn the prestigious Levi Strauss award...garner a bunch of other industry awards...release some fantastic CDs ­ as Jaci has ­ and the average person could have died then with a great, big smile on their face.

Jaci Rae is not your average person.

Far from it, in fact. She is that rare woman in command of a range of creative skills, thoroughly able to impact the world with each one.

A Singer...Like a River

When Jaci started out in the music business, she was the greenest of greenies. An outsider's outsider. Faced with those kinds of impossible odds, the hopes of hundreds of thousands of other would-be singing stars have withered on the vine and died.

It only made Jaci all the more determined.

She had little idea how to launch her own singing career. There were, after all, no manuals on the subject. So she learned. Several years of trial and error later - of learning what made music execs and their unusual industry tick - yielded success. Great success in fact. To date, Jaci has achieved four number one singles on various stations across the country such as KOFI, KATX, KFTX and B105 to name a few, in her brand of heartfelt country...plus a top 15 spot on the ECMA charts in Europe.

Her latest CD, Can't Push a River, is a critical and commercial success. Said DJ, Chris Allen, from Big Kat 98.9 in Minnesota: "There is so much heart and soul in Jaci's music! Incredible CD!" More praise followed. "This is a great CD. The first 2 songs are especially Terrific. All in all it's a great CD and should do well for her," said Grand Ole Opry Star, Ernie Ashworth.

And from across the pond, Raymond Phillips from Country Harvest Radio in Australia said, "Can't Push a River is truly a first class product, something Jaci can really be proud of from the first to the last track!" And the list goes on!

Accomplish this much and people will call you a leader. But Jaci was just getting started.

Cutting a Path to Music Success

... Then Mapping the Way

Not everyone can write. Fortunately, Jaci Rae can.

With that talent, she has given others the roadmap to music success she never had.

It's called The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money. To many budding singing stars, it is the single missing piece in their music career puzzle.

"If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, did it make a sound? If you make music and nobody hears it, did it make a difference? So you love to make music. If that music is made out of inspiration, then it's going to move others. But to get your music to others you need a plan. I've been successful in the music business for 40 years, and I can tell you that Jaci's book The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money gives you that plan. You won't need to figure it out by trial and error. Now it's up to you to follow that plan and successfully spread your music." Dennis Marcellino Former member of Sly & The Family Stone, The Elvin Bishop Group, and The Tokens. Now a very successful indie artists link

"WOW! Jaci Rae's book, The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money, is what I have been looking for all along!" said singer, Justin Timestin. He's not alone. With the Guide's help, Reginald Owens and his partner, "not only got college bookings, radio, and Internet airplay, but also the number nine spot in the CMJ (College Music Journal)."

"I just read the The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money and I might have to eat my words about no one coming along with a magic wand...Jaci Rae come awfully close!! I wish I had half the information in this book several years ago! What a gift Jaci Rae is giving so many up-and-coming musicians. Thank you again for such a goldmine of information!" Elisabeth Carlisle - Former A&M artist. Successful touring Indie Musician and One of the Top High School Music Teacher in the link. link

The thing is, testimonials like these are typical of the feedback Jaci's book generates. The Indie Guide to Music, Marketing and Money has changed (and will change) the destinies of struggling singers and musicians throughout the world.

But here's what's so remarkable: Not everyone returns after they've achieved success to help others succeed, too.

Jaci is that rare person.

Writing Relationship Wrongs

Helping relationships succeed is another of Jaci's crusades.

The fact that so many marriages crash and burn is an issue with her. To Jaci, it's just common sense that good relationships boil down to good communication. That was an important lesson Jaci learned early on as a counselor for troubled youth.

With all their science, psychologists and psychiatrists still don't have the answer to the divorce epidemic (collectively, the group has an outrageous divorce rate of 90 percent). Jaci knew that and struggled to come up with her own model for teaching, her own style for instructing principles of communication in relationships.

She found it in football, of all places.

Winning Points with the Woman in Your Life is an original work, a refreshing, slightly tongue-in-cheek comparison of football and relationships that gives men a memorable way of visualizing male/female action and reaction.

"The award-winning singer's 10th book tackles the subject of improving romantic relationships. Cleverly using football plays, scrimmage strategies, and tactical maneuvers as analogies, she shows the male reader how to score big points with their woman," wrote Richard Leiby of The Washington Post.

"Winning Points with the Woman in Your Life One Touchdown at a Time" by Jaci Rae is the best and only book I have ever seen that embraces men and does it with their interests in mind. I read this book cover to cover two times and found the information extremely useful and pertinent. It's fascinating and compelling, but most of all informative." - Dr. Dale A. Helman, Neurologist - Salinas, CA

Couples have already written to thank her for the huge help this book has been. But this is just one more impact from a very impactful woman.

Renaissance Lady

With her tenth self-help book completed, with her music career firmly on course, with all of these accomplishments coming at a very early age, Jaci remains grateful for her blessings and excited about the future.

Her future will undoubtedly include many new achievements.

A "Renaissance Woman" is someone accomplished in a number of fields, including the arts and sciences.

What a perfect way to describe Jaci Rae.

Oh What a Season!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Season! I want to apologize for being absent for so long. An unbridled car, came out of the stall and plowed me down. I've been laid up in hospital for longer than I can believe! Months and months, all the while knowing that the man who did this, will never pay a dime towards the bills!

But I kept my spirits up, literally, by knowing that when I got out of the bed, up off the wheelchair, stepped away from the walker and moved away from the cane, all of you would still be here. Thus, I want to send my warmest thank you to all of you. Wishing you brighter days with each passing. Thanks for listening and sharing my music with others. But most of all, thank you for being here! Many blessings. TJ

July went fast and I want to thank you again

Thank you so much for your support and for spreading the word. I haven't been on here because I have had some pretty harsh obstacles to overcome both health and housing as once a student graduates, even though they pay monthly rent, which is quite high and despite the pandemic, we are required to move within 3 days.

Knowing that, I attempted months in advance to prepare, but with the pandemic between the cost that rose exponentially of rent and no one wanting to rent in the first place for fear of getting COVID-19, it’s made it next to impossible to find a living situation.

Because of this, I have not had WI-FI, only data on my phone. But I have access to WI-FI now and I can see what you have written, which warms my heart.

I truly want to TY So much for expressing your enjoyment of my music by spreading the word and recommending it! I truly appreciate your kindness. As time goes on, I will be posting new music as well as during Christmas seasons.

October - December I will be uploading Christmas music.

Please help continuing to spread the word. The more people who click on my music to listen, the better chance I will have to be able to make more music.

I will be listening to yours as well once finals, graduation and the move are complete!

My music is also on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and more under my full name or partials of my name Tonya Rae , Tonya Jaci Rae, Jaci Rae or TJ Rae.

Many blessings. TJ

What an incredible time in history

It's an incredible time in history, a time that has never been seen with the exception of the Spanish Flu 1918-1920. Let's pray that COVID-19 does not take that much time to be eradicated. My heart goes out to everyone who has contracted this disease, especially to those who have lost someone to it

The only way I get through the struggles in my life (and besides the pandemic, this is a snapshot into my past year.)

1. Emergency surgery to remove everything due to cancer
2. Flatlined because the medicine pump after surgery failed and dumped. They were able to recover me obviously and thank you to God and my friends who were praying and thinking positive vibes at me.
3. Catastrophic liver failure as a result of the pump dump (that was five months ago, just a few days before the pandemic was declared). My family was told to prepare for my imminent death. They didn't realize the power of prayer, God and friends and family. They do now.
4. Pandemic, catastrophic spread of COVID-19 to the world around.
5. Graduation at the top of my class a month ago.
6. Because of the pandemic, I have been unable to find work with two degrees and a lot of experience!
7. unable to find housing due to the pandemic....and there is so much more that does not need to be stated. A waste of your time and mine!

But music has guided me through. I am hoping I have the courage to audition for next years AGT. I need some good news.

Let's all embrace music. I thank all of you for embracing mine. Every time I received a notification that someone had left me a message, it gave me something to look forward too. A time when I would have access to WI-FI again.

I have now read and answered everyone who wrote me, and none of you knew the nightmare I was living. So thank you to everyone for your support. It gave me a lot to look forward too!

I will be posting new music as well as during Christmas seasons.

October - December I will be uploading Christmas music.

Please help spread the word. The more people who click on my music to listen, the better chance I will have to be able to make more music.

Gosh, I am a terrible sales person! I should be saying, go, spend money! But I am terrible and that will make it so I cannot continue. But I cannot change who I am!

I hope your week has been awesome

Hi! I wanted to again thank you so very much for listening to my music. I have been asked so very many times where it can be purchased.

if you would email me and let me know what you see on your screen. I have listed all my songs, my EP's, CD's, and books as well as other merchandise I found a place that does that instant stuff on.

Yet still, I am receiving email that no one can see. Would you let me know what you see?

This week has been crazy. I had a complete computer crash, every piece of data gone, everything I've ever written. All my research papers to boot as well as my final papers and homework for my final quarter at my University. And I am an honors student. This is the last week of school!

Here's a snapshot of my week. I am laughing right now, more than crying. But I wanted to share with you.

Computer, died completely with all back-ups (iCloud, Google Drive and Western Digital external) corrupt.
Two days ago I was notified I needed to move to a different apartment on Sunday. Okay right? It's the end of the quarter, I'm trying to remake all my lost homework and final papers.
The Internet was cut off by my campus for my apartment, making doing my final papers impossible. This is via data on my iPhone lol.
I was nominated by someone to be my classes guest speaker at our "virtual" graduation. I am hoping still, we will get a real one, because we all worked so hard! WE need it! LOL!

Well, there is so much more, and i just recovered from what they called, Catastrophic Liver Failure, six weeks ago. Three doctors notified my family to prepare for my death! Well I beat the odds, just as I had less than a year ago when I literally coded on the table in recovery after an emergency radical hysterectomy.

But I am here. For a reason, right? I am a fighter, and I am fighting!

But the upside to this crazy life, is that I just found out, I am #1 in many categories.

So thank you for listening, sharing, and spreading the word. I hope you continue to do so.

Then perhaps I will be able to make additional music. I am going to try, without the internet, thru phone data, to upload another song.

Again, you can listen to my music at link. Under Jaci Rae or Tonya Rae Here is the link:

Have the best week. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Many blessings. TJ
