JJ Grey & Mofro
Every so often, we stumble across a song that perfectly embodies a particular situation. That situation could be a crazy night out at the club. That situation could be the most epic backyard BBQ you’ve ever thrown. That situation could be a sultry night in the bedroom. Well, those songs are great, but few transcend past those moments, fully encapsulating a nation. Did we just throw out a bold statement? Yes, we did. And we’re right. JJ Grey & Mofro are America, and they’re the tough as nails, beer and whisky drinking, tobacco chewing America to boot.
This often celebrated soulful Jacksonville seven-piece are set to release their newest record on Ol’Glory come March 3rd. This album marks their debut on Provogue, which is a part of Mascot Label Group. Amongst the 12 intriguing, soulful, bluesy, rock tunes, “Every Minute” stands out far above in our mind.
With instantaneous timelessness, this tune immediately boasts a historically classic sound, providing younger listeners with a taste of some influences from the best of the best (Bruce Springsteen, Bob Seger, John Fogherty, etc). It’s one that should be held onto for every red, white, and blue get together, no matter how big, or how small.
If you have a chance to catch them live, make sure to do so. We’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.
