Blues Traveler and JJ Grey & Mofro

Blues Traveler

In 1987 the four original members of Blues Traveler-John Popper, Chandler Kinchla, Brendan Hill, and the late Bobby Sheehan-gathered in their drummer's parent's basement in Princeton, NJ to jam. From these high school sessions emerged a band that would go on to release 14 studio albums and counting, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-times platinum- selling more than 10 million combined units worldwide. Over an illustrious career Blues Traveler has played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people, and, in "Run-Around," had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, which earned them a Grammy® for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Their movie credits include Blues Brothers 2000, Kingpin, Wildflowers and others. A television favorite, they have been featured on Saturday Night Live, Austin City Limits, VH1's Behind the Music and they have the record for the most appearances of any artist on The Late Show with David Letterman. Blues Traveler's latest effort, 2021's Traveler's Blues, is nominated for a Grammy in the category of "Best Traditional Blues Album," bringing their 35-year journey full circle.

JJ GREY & MOFRO - Olustee (AL 5018)

From his early days playing cover music behind chicken wire at a west side Jacksonville juke joint while still working at a lumberyard, to playing sold-out shows at some of the largest venues and music festivals in the world, JJ Grey has always delivered his soul-honest truths. Since his first album, Blackwater, back in 2001, Grey has been releasing deeply moving, masterfully written, funkified rock and front porch Southern soul music.

Now, with Olustee - his tenth album and first in eight years, and the first he has self-produced - Grey is back, singing his personal stories with universal themes of redemption, rebirth, hard luck, and inner peace. With his music, Grey also celebrates good times with friends, oftentimes mixing the carnal with the cerebral in the very same song. Fueled by his vividly detailed, timeless original songs spun from his life experiences, Grey's gritty baritone drips with honest passion and testifies with a preacher's foot-pounding fervor.

With Olustee, JJ Grey has once again pushed the boundaries of his own creative musical, lyrical and vocal talents, delivering an instant classic. Many of the songs are steeped in the mythical Southern stories of his ancestral Florida home and filled with people from JJ's life. The songs are told through the eyes of a poet and sung with pure, unvarnished soul. Grey's message is simple and strong - respect the natural world and always try to live in the moment. And never forget the importance of having a good time!
