Beneath The ROOTS...
JJ ROOTS exploded on the East Coast music scene with the launch of their debut album “Here Goes Something” and shows no sign of slowing down!
They showcase the music that inspires them through their original “JJROOTified” cover songs as well as inspiring a profound response from audiences by way of soul-lifting vocals and powerful melodic riffs within their highly impactful original music.
The JJ ROOTS alternative and contemporary acoustic Folk/Rock/Americana vibe have been referenced to such greats as Buffy Sainte-Marie, Sheryl Crow, Joan Baez, Coldplay, and Fleetwood Mac.
JJ Roots has recently won the 2019 Overall Folk/Americana Duo of the Year at the Josie International Music Awards in Tennessee at the world-renowned Celebrity Stage Theatre in Dollywood. This is their second time, year over year, winning this highly competitive international title!
Jocelyn and Jeff are currently busy recording their sophomore album with world-renowned producer/engineer Paul Milner of Trillium House Studio. Paul has worked with some of the world's biggest and best in the industry!
They continue to create and transform their cutting edge sound and grow a committed fanbase while adding dates to their 2020 Boxcars & Memoirs Tour.
“COLD is a haunting story and a groove that hooks you from the get go! JJ ROOTS brings a reminiscence of the way Joan Baez and Buffy Sainte-Marie sang stories. Poetic and beautiful!”
