ISSA Featured Artist for March 2019
In April, 2018, JJ ROOTS has exploded on the East Coast music scene with the launch of the debut album “Here Goes Something” and shows no sign of slowing down!
It has been said that folk performers, using simply their voices and guitars, are the unplugged artists who relate collective stories through their songs. The ROOTS of this genre are in traditional music, but it is by no means ALL traditional. This epitomizes JJ ROOTS.
Combining the diverse talents and backgrounds of Jocelyn Parlee and Jeff Scott Gray, the JJ ROOTS sound can rarely be categorized. It’s been described by Music Insiders and Fans as Fresh, Innovative, and Hauntingly Creative!
This Canadian songwriting duo cuts to the core of listeners emotions. Their combined multi-genre backgrounds inspires passionate melodies, sparked by colorful lyrics to provoke a profound response from audiences by way of soul lifting vocals and powerful melodic riffs. The JJ ROOTS Alternative Americana vibe has been referenced to such greats as Sheryl Crow, Coldplay, and Fleetwood Mac!
