The songwriters Kormaksson and Soul met in Iceland 1993 and soon began writing music together. In 1994 they made their first CD, 'Hungry for News', with JJ Soul Band and in 1997, 'City Life'. On both CDs the music is many-sided; Blues, R&B, Fusion, Rock, Pop and Latin, sometimes all in one (blues-confusion?). Singer/songwriter J.J. Soul is from Oxford, England but Ingvi Thor Kormaksson is from Iceland as is the rest of the band. The band has hitherto mainly served as a vehicle for the songwriting team. The band's third CD is 'Reach for the Sky' (2002).
Their latest album, 'Bright Lights' was released in 2008.
All four CD's have received excellent reviews from critics.
