JJ takes an unflinching approach to songwriting - moments of tenderness in sharp juxtaposition with the chronicling of horrible events. The new music has a homespun feel, with incredible musicians lending their talent and bringing it to life. At times, the band falls away to reveal the songwriter and his guitar at the core. At other moments, the music explodes into life with experimental sound, string quartets and horns.
Drawing inspiration from great songwriters and innovators like Big Thief, Bon Iver and Wilco, JJ’s ambitious work is soon to be released with arrangements already in front of audiences in a powerful live show. Expect moments of vulnerability punctuated with defiance and raw emotion as JJ weaves songs of real beauty and influences collide.
