Dubbed the “Future of the Blues” by legendary “Misty Blue” recording artist Dorothy Moore and a “Blues Trailblazer” by Living Blues Magazine, JJ Thames is the leave-it-all-on-the-stage front-woman of the Violet ReVOLT, possessing the mesmerizing je-ne-sais-quoi star-quality of Tina Turner, Etta James, Janis Joplin, Koko Taylor, and Ruth Brown all in one raw, often wistful, always powerful and passionate voice. JJ’s voice and stage presence is one that often incites goosebumps, tears, encores and standing ovations- commanding the attention of any room -whether it be a 100 person capacity Hole in the Wall Mississippi Juke Joint, or a 20,000 seat stadium
