WELCOME TO 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! 

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

Drawing upon both of their roots, Jocelyn's country/classical and Jeff's rock backgrounds, the JJ ROOTS sound has sweet melodies with sharp edges mixed with meaningful lyrics. Both founding members are strongly influenced by artists who not only write great songs but produce amazing performances.  

 The driving force in JJ ROOTS writing style is a desire to cross and merge genres as well as lyrics to evoke deep thought and feeling in the listener.  Jocelyn and Jeff continue their love of all genres of music through singing and writing, and they continue to grow their style of songwriting in the Roots/Folk/Americana genre. 

Recently, Jocelyn was nominated for “Song of The Year” in the Folk/Roots/Americana category at the 2017 Josie Music Awards in Nashville, TN. for her song "Hey Baby" that was produced by Jeff Gray at Magic Brew Studio.  "Hey Baby"  is in regular rotation on Krave Radio in Fort Worth, TX. and  97.5FM CIOE in Nova Scotia.

JJ ROOTS was selected by Club One New Releases to film a spotlight showcase in Halifax, NS for it's television series. It is slated for release on the Bell Network in 2018. "Here Goes Something" 

Jocelyn Parlee & Jeff Scott Gray, as  JJ Roots, are in regular rotation on 97.5FM CIOE in Nova Scotia and are hard at work in the studio to produce more original works in Nashville and Magic Brew Studio in Nova Scotia.

    Shonna Clark was listening to JJ ROOTS. Yesterday at 6:54am · Kennetcook If you haven’t checked out local duo Jocelyn Parlee and Jeff Gray of JJ Roots, your missing something. I just purchased their song “Devil of a Price” on iTunes and I’m obsessed! Check their entire album of alternative/folk. It’s fantastic! 🎶🎧
