Formed for an expedition to the uncharted bluegrass territory of Iceland, JÆJA
is a contemporary acoustic quartet composed of four inquisitive young musicians, blending together influences of jazz, old time, and Scandi-folk to create their unique, unbridled sound. Guitar powerhouse, Bragi Ólafsson
from Reykjavik is joined by mandolin maestro Evan Davies
(The Often Herd), jazz bassist Sam Quintana
(Wandering Monster), and fiddle player Kieran Towers
(Charlotte Carrivick / Pet Yeti) to create broody and blazing original instrumental music, paired with carefully chosen 4 part vocal favourites from Tony Rice to Paul Simon.
