The best kept secret in music


"Peter Mulvey"

"JJ Baron's stuff has spit and grit and humor, things you would normally
need to look pretty hard for, but here they are, all in one guy."
-Peter Mulvey - Peter Mulvey

"Slaid Cleaves"

It's hard to believe someone so young could be so talented.

JJ reminds me of myself 20 years ago. Except he has a lot more talent than I did.

JJ's got the gift. He knows how to craft songs that give you the goose bumps, he plays a mean guitar, and he has a great attitude. In the next few years, the folk world will come to know JJ Baron, and I'll be saying, "I told you so!" - Slaid Cleaves

"Alternative Words?"

Calling his music 'Alternative Country,' Providence's JJ Baron throws Jazz, R&B and Rock into his sound, while rooting his lyrics in Myth, Bible and Shakespeare.
At 21 years old, it's tough to call a songwriter enigmatic. Let's face it, there's just not enough wear and tear on the soul at that age.
But at 21, lyricist JJ Baron has plenty of unsettling contraries pulling him in opposing artistic directions. With one eye toward American music's roots and another focused on creating an original presentation, Baron meshes a sound both new and familiar with an acoustic six-string in hand. The result has been a string of solid "alternative country" songs.
One of the area's most promising songwriters.
