JJ Grey Releases New Single “Wonderland”


Forthcoming Album Olustee -- JJ’s First In Nearly A Decade And First Self-Produced Record -- Out February 23rd On Alligator Records
 
JJ Grey & Mofro Set To Embark On Headlining Album Tour Across U.S.

Today, (January 26th) renowned singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JJ Grey unveils a new song, "Wonderland," from his upcoming album Olustee, which is set to release on February 23rd on Alligator Records.JJ Grey & Mofro have also announced a massive, months-long tour headlining iconic venues across the US, including The Ryman in Nashville, The Riviera in Chicago, The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, among many others. Additionally today, Grey unveiled a new, animated video for "Wonderland."
 
"Wonderland" has already had great reception with radio with 13 adds at Triple-A (Adult Album Alternative), and 14 adds on Americana making it the #2 most added single at Americana and #1 highest debut on Americana singles chart.


 
On Olustee, Grey's first self-produced album, the North Florida-born and bred artist sings his personal stories with universal themes of redemption, rebirth, hard luck, and inner peace. With his music, Grey also celebrates good times with lifelong friends, often mixing the carnal with the cerebral in the very same song. Fueled by his vividly detailed, timeless originals, spun from his own life and experiences in the Northern Florida swampland, Grey’s gritty baritone drips with honest passion and testifies with a preacher’s foot-pounding fervor.

“Impassioned singing, cold blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul … Grey is a singer-songwriter with unforced talent and deep feeling.”
--The New York Times
 
“A deeply-rooted blend of southern-fried rock and swamp funk…richly evocative.”
--NPR
 
“JJ Grey is a North Florida sage and purveyor of the funkiest swamp rock the world has ever heard…Chicken-scratch guitar and bone-deep songs.”
--Oxford American 
JJ Grey spoke about "Wonderland" saying, "When I was younger it was so hard for me to write a song about simple happiness. This song is almost like a post-it note for me, there to remind me that every day is the first day of my life." Last month, Grey released the first two singles from the album, "The Sea" and “Rooster”. AllMusic says JJ Grey’s music is “as authentic as the ground under your feet, because that’s where it comes from -- just before it moves, simply and directly, through the body of the listener, into the human heart.”
