Sweet J Band / Press

“Blending old Detroit rock, R&B and country into a Van Morrison meets Wilco at a Keb’ Mo concert-type experience, Grand Rapids’ six-piece Sweet Japonic has whittled a compact disc from the mighty oak of classic vinyl – with the connoted breadth of influence intact...”

“Sweet Japonic keeps impressing with its ability and willingness to grow and morph into something unlike anything else. At once bluesy, alt-country, folksy and jazzy, SJ reflects the personalities and talents of it's members.”

Grand Rapids Press

“Sweet Japonic is rock, but you won’t hear it before a Metallica concert. It’s also blues, but it’s not depressing. It’s pop, but not to the point where you want a lobotomy. And it has a little country influence.”
