First Listen: JJ Grey & Mofro’s "Every Minute"

By The EditorsSouthern SoundsJanuary 12, 2015

With roots in Southern rock, blues, funk, and soul, the music of Jacksonville, Florida–based JJ Grey and Mofro defies categorization. The band's ninth album, Ol’ Glory, is out in February, but you can have an exclusive first listen of the track "Every Minute" now. Like most of the set, this song is an upbeat anthem—which is easy to understand considering the inspiration for this song came to Grey on a trip to Jamaica. “I had an epiphany," Grey says, "I was eating my favorite breakfast—ackee and salt fish—and was real warm but the sea breeze had just started out of the east. There was music playing somewhere in the distance and all at once I realized that I was the luckiest person alive (no matter how many times I might have tried to convince myself otherwise). Then I started humming this tune."

Is Bravo's Southern Charm Really Southern?

By The EditorsBelow the LineMarch 20, 2014

With three episodes of Southern Charm under our belts (four if you count that half-hour teaser that premiered back in February), we’ve seen enough to confidently weigh in.

The First Family of Country Music

By The EditorsSouthern SoundsMarch 13, 2014

Perhaps no other American family has had such an enduring musical legacy as the Carters. Hailing from the foothills of Virginia, A.P. Carter collected and composed traditional folk songs, while his wife Sara’s clear and strong voice resonated in homes across America from the 1920s to 1950s. Her cousin Maybelle’s use of the then-sidelined guitar solidified its place in country music, not to mention Maybelle’s daughter June, who became a legend in her own right alongside her husband, Johnny Cash.
