Todd Smallie – JJ Grey

Todd’s musical journey began in Atlanta during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. During this era, Atlanta was a musical hotbed for bands of all flavors, but especially for those that would later be recognized as the forefathers of the jam band scene. After his musical talents were noticed by the Aquarium Rescue Unit, he was connected with a young guitar prodigy named Derek Trucks. The teenaged Trucks formed the Derek Trucks Band, featuring Todd at the bass chair. The band hit the road, honing their unique fusion of blues, jazz, and funk.

After much success, the group separated to pursue other opportunities in 2010 and Todd next joined forces with JJ Grey and Mofro.  Todd’s bass work immediately added a new dimension to the blues, funk, and soul of Grey and the group.
