  • The Florida singer-songwriter JJ Grey and his band Mofro play a swampy mix of country, rock, and R&B that's not a million miles removed from the vintage Muscle Shoals Southern soul sounds of the late 1960s and early '70s. The band's sound is fat and greasy, augmented by horns and haunted-sounding backing vocals. Songs like the album-opening "War" and the down-and-dirty "Turpentine" have a classic '70s rock feel, but this is no retro rock & roll collection--singing over these thick, sultry rhythms, Grey resembles a contemporary Tony Joe White.
Professional Reviews
Down Beat (p.65) - "His melodies make you think you've known them forever, and his lyrics are attentive to human concerns."

No Depression (p.121) - "Smartly, Grey focuses on his big, soulful voice, keeping the music spare and using bluesy horns and choral flourishes judiciously."
