JJ Roots

Combining the diverse talents and backgrounds of Jocelyn Parlee and Jeff Scott Gray, JJ ROOTS music can rarely be categorized. It’s been described by industry professionals and fans as Fresh, Innovative, and Exciting!   

Since their CD Launch in April, 2018, JJ ROOTS has exploded on the East Coast music scene and shows no sign of slowing down as they continue to grow a committed fanbase as well as adding dates by popular demand to their 2018/19 “Boxcars & Memoirs” tour!  

It has been said that folk performers, using simply their voices and guitars, are the unplugged artists who relate collective stories through their songs. The ROOTS of this genre are in traditional music, but it is by no means all traditional. This epitomizes JJ ROOTS. 

Known for their energetic yet subtle live performances, JJ ROOTS showcases the music that influences them and shares their unique, infectious, original songs. This dynamic duo entertains and engages audiences with their colorful musical story telling and poignant melodies.  

Drawing upon both of their musical backgrounds, Jocelyn’s Country/Folk/Classical and Jeff’s Folk/Rock, the JJ ROOTS sound has sweet melodies, sharp edges and meaningful lyrics.      

 As a result, the JJ ROOTS writing style bridges genres with crafted lyrics that evoke deep thought and feeling in the listener. Through their songwriting, JJ ROOTS conveys universal truths in their passionate performances.

Jocelyn Parlee & Jeff Scott Gray, as  JJ ROOTS, currently received 5 Nominations at the 2018 Josie International Music Awards, and are proud to have WON Overall Folk/Americana Duo/Group Of The Year!  JJ ROOTS was one of only three Canadian acts selected as winners in this prestigious international independent music awards event from all of the nominations across Canada! 

Performing as JJ ROOTS, Jocelyn & Jeff continue to showcase their original music including their unique covers in their 2018/19 “Boxcars & Memoirs Tour” and are growing a media presence and fan base in Canada, USA, UK, AUS, and beyond.
