About The Band
Music for your inner grifter. Hard acoustic roots music from a life lived in loud proportions. American Holly is the second release from Wyoming’s favorite applied philosopher J Shogren. His adventures have taken him from days as a trapper to an endowed professor.

Even more riotous, J was a party to the Nobel Peace Prize as a member of the United Nations Team working on climate change.
Since making a splash overseas since his ’07 debut. Shogren is getting press across a wide field: “Blending more styles than we can list here Shogren somehow ties it all together for his own unique sound.
