JJ Grey's first album in nine years!

"A deeply-rooted blend of Southern-fried rock and swamp funk ... richly evocative lyrics ... plainspoken, blue-collar American music." — NPR

"Impassioned singing, riff-based Southern rock, cold blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul. Rich, funky blues celebrate life's most fundamental joys. Grey is a singer-songwriter with unforced talent and deep feeling." — The New York Times

JJ Grey & Mofro unveil their highly anticipated new album, Olustee, on Alligator Records. The album marks their first release in nearly a decade and first-ever release produced by Grey. With Olustee, JJ Grey has once again pushed the boundaries of his own creative musical, lyrical and vocal talents, delivering an album that is destined to become a classic.

Many of the songs are steeped in the mythical Southern stories of his ancestral Florida home and filled with characters from JJ's life. The songs overflow with the sights and sounds of the region as told through the eyes of a poet and sung with pure, unvarnished soul.

Grey spoke on the inspiration behind the title track saying "My grandfather was from the area immediately to the south of Olustee. 'Oulustee' the song is a compilation of a couple different stories I've heard, plus my own experience getting caught in a wildfire."

Songs released early from Olustee include "Wonderland," "The Sea" and "Rooster." The album's 11 songs range from the raucous, celebratory first radio single," Wonderland," to an escape from an out-of-control wildfire in the title track, to the inward-looking closer, "Deeper Than Belief." Singing of his own personal triumphs and struggles, his hopes and desires, his friends and family, Grey's message is simple and strong — respect the natural world and always try to live in the moment. And never forget the importance of having a good time.
