JJ Grey and Mofro have gone through numerous lineup changes throughout the past decade, but the current incarnation might be the best yet, according to JJ. The Jacksonville, Florida band just released its sixth studio album, This River, this past Tuesday, April 16. According to his bio, JJ Grey’s music is a “grimy blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling.” JJ Grey and Mofro are splitting time touring between the U.S. and Europe this spring and summer, including stops at Grolsch Blues Festival in Germany, Sasquatch! Festival in Washington and Glastonbury Festival in the UK.
