Biography

"JJ Grey and his band Mofro stir up a Southern storm of soulful grooves. They deliver simmering, funky and propulsive Southern R&B with a rock edge."
– The New Yorker

"A balance of wildness and cool. Southern swamp rock with undercurrents of Memphis soul…his songs chronicle ambiguous truths and unambiguous urges."
– The New York ... Read more in Amazon's JJ Grey Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Georgia Warhorse ups the ante on JJ's heady mix of Southern rock, blues and swampy soul. Reggae icon Toots Hibbert guests on radio track "Sweetest Thing" and guitar god Derek Trucks guests on another.

Review

...JJ Grey's rich comprehension of the South's learned musical roots and knack to make age-old ideas sound fresh. Grey and Mofro fuse rock with plenty of soul, groove-heavy blues, and dirty, infectious funk. The deep and introspective lyrics are a breath of fresh air. -- Relix

...world-beating blend of Southern rock, blues and Florida swamp soul. -- Billboard

Inspired, deliriously funky, deep-in-the-pocket front porch soul. -- Chicago Sun-Times

Intoxicating North Florida blues-rock, with hints of Memphis, Muscle Shoals and garage-band music. -- USA Today

JJ Grey concocts a vivid blend of blues, Southern rock and funk, complete with richly evocative lyrics and an easygoing sense of blue-collar storytelling...lucid, plainspoken American music. -- National Public Radio

After 2 years (almost to the day) since Mofro's release of Orange Blossoms, they release Georgia Warhorse...and not to disappoint.

To be entirely honest, I'm a huge Mofro fan, and Orange Blossoms didn't really "do" it for me. Country Ghetto was indeed a great album, but was an indication on the band's lack of direction. I expected Country Ghetto to be more of a Blackwater or Lochloosa, but it wasn't. Again, it was good...but different than what I expected. JJ had replaced that deep organ and harmonica sound for a brass section, and it worked for Country Ghetto, but I didn't feel it working for Orange Blossoms. Orange Blossoms was full of the upbeat energy that listeners love to dance to, but it seemed to lack the passion that JJ bellows from his gut. After OB, I was apprehensive that the band was going to pursue this new, semi-overproduced direction. Not to say I still wouldn't have been a Mofro fan, because Pearl Jam did the same thing...and still doing it. I'm still a huge Pearl Jam fan, but prefer their older, early 90's tracks; however, Georgia Warhorse could very well be renamed "Redemption".

Georgia Warhorse may be my favorite album so far. The simplistic nature of Mofro is once again found. You can hear JJ's soul cry in King Hummingbird (the song gives me chills). Gotta Know and Lullaby are extremely moving songs as well. All and The Sweetest Thing are both feel good jams, with styles learned from the previous 2 albums, but didn't neglect the soulful jive. The album is full of that melodic, three-chord artistry that will humble you, making you appreciate every aspect of life. The album breathes a reverence, which makes them unlike any other band.

Basically, Mofro went back to what it knows best...

Stax, Otis, Cocker, Van Morrison, Little Feat...

Georgia Warhorse will empty, evert and cleanse your soul. Then it'll hand it back to you shiny and new.

But unlike, say, Blackwater (so love that drumming!!!), this one had to grow on me. It also needs more Hance, harmonica, luscious keyboard licks... in short, the stuff that elicits groans.

A bit lazy and overly-repetitive in parts (how many Diyo-dayo's and Sweetest Things do we need?... we get it). But in whole, (and in part due to its stomp/boogie cuts) JJ et al. have proffered some of my most joyful moments available lately. As so with all the other works, it is sublime.

Pardon me for just finding out about this incredible band over 4th of July weekend, but that is how long I have been listening to them! Already have tickets to the Telluride Blues & Brews Fest to see them!

Georgia Warhorse is an all around CLASSIC Album! Already in my top 10 favorite albums! "Georgia Warehorse" and "Lullaby" are great songs! "King Hummingbird" could be the song that puts them into the mainstream but we as fans don't need to that to happen!

All the other fans do not need me to tell them to go get this album, they already have it!! Cannot wait to see these guys live!!!

Bought this album based on hearing a song on XM radio in a rental car and reviews here. This guy is a hidden gem. His music is a little bit of everything. I just can't believe this guy hasn't blown up yet. He is seriously talented. Based on this album, I went and got his back catalog. I am glad I did. This is coming from a lifelong Hip-Hop fan.

JJ Grey has found his artistic identity, and he apparently has no interest in changing it. That's fine. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I still miss the days of Blackwater and Lochloosa. They are among my all-time favorite albums, and when JJ Grey changed the name of his band from, "Mofro," to, "JJ Grey & Mofro," with Country Ghetto, that signaled a direction change. It took a while for me to accept that the old sound was gone, but I have learned to appreciate what JJ is trying to do these days. Like its two predecessors, Georgia Warhorse combines horn arrangements and a more hard-rocking sound than Blackwater and Lochloosa. As always, though, producer Dan Prothero keeps the sound from ever getting cluttered, and maintains the swampy groove that he always does.

A few cuts worth mentioning:

Lullaby. When Derek Trucks put out Already Free, it sounded like he had been listening to JJ Grey, and I started to fantasize about what Derek and JJ would sound like if they played together. Thankfully, Derek and JJ were thinking the same thing, and the result is Lullaby. Trucks' guitar work on Lullaby is brilliantly spooky and subdued, perfectly complimenting JJ's voice. If either of them are reading this: PLEASE RECORD A FULL ALBUM TOGETHER. PLEASE.

Georgia Warhorse. A perfect, hard-driving swampy blues song with some fine lap steel playing by JJ's new bandmate, Andrew Trube. It is reminiscent of "Skeleton Bug," by Papa Mali from another Dan Prothero-produced album-- Thunder Chicken. Both are told from a bug's perspective.

The rest of the album is outstanding, of course. JJ has his sound, and he is sticking to it.

A few others to check out: Tony Joe White (JJ's primary inspiration), Eric Lindell, Black Joe Lewis, Damon Fowler, Papa Mali, Collard Greens & Gravy, Anders Osborne.
