JJ Soul Band

Jazz Music Band
Reykjavik, Iceland

Current Score: ★★☆☆☆ ☆☆


Icelandic band fronted by UK vocalist/songwriter/lyricist JJ Soul. When living in Iceland for a brief period (‘91-‘97), JJ Soul met songwriter Ingvi Thor Kormaksson and soon they began writing music together. In 1994 they made their first album, ‘Hungry for News’, with JJ Soul Band, and in 1997, ‘City Life’. On both albums the music is many-sided; Blues, R&B, Fusion, Rock, Pop and even Samba, sometimes all in one (Blues-conFusion?). The third album was ‘Reach for the Sky’ (2002) and finally there was “Bright Lights” in 2008. And then two "lost and found" tracks, Wild About You and Some Nights, were unexpectedly discovered in 2019, and published in April 2020, eleven years after the band quit performing and recording. Front man, JJ Soul, passed away August 10th 2020.
