There are no two ways around it: JJ Grey was born to make music. The Florida native stops listeners in their tracks with a style the New York Times describes as “impassioned singing, riff-based Southern rock, cold-blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul.” Known for live shows fueled by his gravely voice, soulful guitar and no-nonsense songwriting, Grey lays everything on the line each time he takes the stage. Backed by his band Mofro, he delivers upbeat dance tunes and heart-wrenching ballads in equal measure at the Jay Peak Music Series and the Montréal International Jazz Festival.
