J J Grey & Mofro
Born and bred in Florida, JJ Grey plays music that mixes raw rural blues with tough, swampy Southern rock, generating a sound that has a loose, natural feel while maintaining a potent edge, and his songs draw deep on his heritage as well as his clear-eyed perspective on the world around him. Grey grew up in a small town 40 miles south of Jacksonville, FL, and when he was young he developed a passion for surfing. While Grey enjoyed several years wandering the world's beaches as a surf bum, his love of music brought him back home. He began honing his skills as a guitarist, writing songs, and has released several acclaimed records since. We've got him live from the 2010 Tampa Bay Blues Festival in Tampa, FL.
