Funky Acoustic Rock Molded from the drippings of several genres to create an unforgettable sound. - Rolling Stone Magazine

"Artist of the Month"

...smoke-smooth vocals tickling your ears while he's pulling sounds out of his 12-string that give you goose bumps. - Party Source Magazine

- Party Source Magazine


Man, JJ guy knows his stuff. Many of the groups songs rhythm guitar parts were syncopated, yet JJ was singing contra-rhythms to those parts quite often, and made it look effortless. Throw in the fact that his guitar was a twelve string, and you get a very filled out, phat sound. JJs vocals are definitely part of the groups unique style. Every time I heard him I just kept thinking funky! In my opinion, he sounded somewhere betweeen Matchbox 20s Rob Thomas and Nickelbacks Chad Kroeger. - Austinbands.net

"J.J. Usher is a talent that continues to wow his listeners with each new song. His live performances are compelling,entertaining, consistent, enthusiastic, and CROWDED!" - Michael Gerard- President of Gerard Enterprises


"J.J. Usher's lyrics are meaningful and thought provoking. He has a great voice and uses it well to explore the depth of subjects he sings about. If Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson or any of the greats had written some of his songs, they would already be standards"

- Randy Miller ( 4 time GRAMMY winner )
