BIOGRAPHY

U.N. Jefferson is a 9 piece collective that fuses elements of Soul with the fundamentals of Motown and early R&B to create a sound that is both familiar and fresh.

Rooted in the vintage sounds of James Brown, The Temptations and Wilson Pickett, the band manages to keep one foot in the foundation of traditional Soul while cultivating an authentic take on a classic genre.

Fronted by singer-songwriter Ajay Massey, U.N. Jefferson’s dynamic live performance delivers a high degree of energy and showmanship. The band’s infectious sound and Massey’s fervor for entertaining the crowd knows no bounds. Standing still is not an option.

SHINE ON ME PRESS RELEASE
TESTIFY PRESS RELEASE


“A flurry of funky soul rock music careened around me like bullets being shot in a silhouette around me by an expert marksman. They delivered every inch of themselves onto that stage and did not leave until they were drenched in sweat.”

– Gideon Greenbaum-Shinder, Round Table Radio

“They are by far the highest energy, most soulful, uplifting act I’ve seen in a very, very long time. If they don’t have you moving by the end of the night, there is likely something ailing your soul. But that’s okay, because they are the right people to heal that ailment. Even a man in crutches couldn’t keep off the dance floor last night. Check them out. You won’t regret it.”

– Drew Aguiar, Author/Musician

“Fantastic band with an amazing energy that makes it impossible for the audience not to move.”

– Lars Classington, Actor/Comedian

“That was the first time in a long time that I’ve seen a band take a hold of a room and make it their show.”

– Dan Burke, Toronto Club Promoter
