“There's a big gap between what people listened to in the 50's, 60's and 70's and what people actually know about now and JJ's a great conduit to that.”

Derek Trucks

“Though JJ's songs are set in his homeland, his stories transcend time and place. Some of JJ's stories come from his forefathers, passed down through his homeland's blood, pain and triumph of natural beauty. In the tradition of oral history, JJ filters these stories through his generation's circumstances and makes them universal.”

Luther Dickinson, guitar player for the Black Crowes and North Mississippi Allst

“JJ's voice feels like the rallying cry of a freedom fighter rising above the din of the age old battle between good and evil. It is the sound of resilient tradition spitting in the eye of heartless, unrooted modern life. This voice sings songs of protest against watching your home lose its identity in the name of progress, against watching America turn into a faceless, blameless strip mall for the sake of convenience and greed.”

Luther Dickinson, guitar player for the Black Crowes and North Mississippi Allst

“I love JJ. He's got soul.”

Warren Haynes, guitar player for the Allman Brothers and Gov't Mule

“Quietly intoxicating with a stunning melodic freshness…focused, deep songs.”

The Boston Globe

“A glorious, soul-drenched delight... down-home funk, blues and Dixie rock, unmistakably Southern, undeniably soulful.”

Billboard

“Grey and Mofro fuse rock with plenty of soul and groove-heavy blues, and dirty, infectious funk. The deep and introspective lyrics are a breath of fresh air.”

Relix

“Smoldering Otis Redding-inspired ballads…full-bore blues-rock, down-home roots and country-soul…uproariously funky and melodic homespun tales that are gritty and deeply personal, confrontational and universal. Grey’s resonant vocals are potent and authoritative, mature beyond his age.”

Harp

“Rich, funky swamp grooves...Grey is a singer-songwriter [who]celebrates life’s most fundamental joys with unforced talent and deep feeling.”
