JJ GREY & MOFRO IS RELEASING A NEW ALBUM PLUS A TOUR!

“JJ Grey concocts a vivid blend of blues, Southern rock and funk,
complete with
richly evocative lyrics and an easygoing sense of
blue-collar
storytelling…lucid, plainspoken American music.” – NPR

Nashville, TN – Celebrated soulful ensemble JJ Grey & Mofro will release their
newest recording Ol’ Glory on February 24th. This album marks their debut on
Provogue Records, which is part of the Mascot Label Group. Ol’ Glory contains
12 new songs that feature the deep, soulful blend of blues, rock, folk, funk,
gospel, gritty R&B and personal, Southern-inspired narratives that have become
synonymous with JJ Grey & Mofro. A true Southern renaissance man, JJ Grey’s
intensely charismatic live performances, combined with the incredible
musicianship of Mofro, have connected with audiences all over the world. Their
work has been praised by the press, including The New York Times, Wall Street
Journal, NPR, Relix, The Oxford American and many more.

The material on Ol’ Glory reflects two themes that run through JJ Grey & Mofro’s
entire body of work, a strong sense of place, and finding happiness with where
you are in life. The opening track, “Everything Is A Song” is prime example, as is
the joyous “Every Minute” with its mantra “loving every minute of living”. “Home
in the Sky” allows listeners a glimpse at Grey’s spirituality strongly rooted in his
Florida home and the land he grew up on. JJ Grey is a natural storyteller with a
gift for delivering thoughtful and profound messages in a down-to-earth, laid-back
way, while maintaining a level of intensity that goes straight to your core.

JJ Grey & Mofro have captivated audiences at some of the largest festivals world
wide, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, Glastonbury,
North Sea Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival and Fuji Rock in Japan.
The band, who play over 120 dates per year, will be hitting the road in February
in support of Ol’ Glory, including a trip to Europe and Australia. (See list of tour
dates below.)

JJ Grey is as genuine as they come, a do-it-yourselfer who is committed to
making music that’s true to his heritage and full of integrity. In this day and age,
that’s a rare thing.Boston  be sure the catch him at House Of Blues on 2/20!
