Acoustifried is a 5 piece country rock band out of the Tri Cities area that formed in August 2009.  Acoustifried is J.r. Moore, Jeffery Wright, David James, Matt Blevins & Greg Godsey.  Acoustifried released their first EP back in September 2012, titled "One Hitters" and is available for sale at their shows or on their website,

Lead vocalist & guitarist J.R. Moore started his musical career singing solo in churches at the age of 6 and then started playing guitar at age 15 and has since played in many local bands around the area including Flashback, Brand X, Cold Steel, Wyndego and The Duotones.  His band Brand X won the regional True  Value/Jimmy Dean competition in 1994 and traveled to play for the state title at ever popular Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville where they finished 2nd.  Not long after that he joined Cold Steel where he found his longtime musical partner Jeff Wright and played with them til 1999 opening for national acts Perfect Stranger, The Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad, David Allen Coe and traveled to Atlanta to open for Pam Tillis at Lakewood Ampitheatre.  J.R. then went solo and opened for acts Tracy Byrd and Tracy Lawrence before recording a full length gospel cd which included some of his original songs and toured the 5 state surrounding area promoting the album.  He then joined back up with Jeff Wright to form The Duotones.  After a while he talked Jeff into making a full band again and Acoustifried was born.  Jeff Wright has been playing the Tri Cities since the 70's and played with Nite Flite and Nugget where he performed at Freedom Hall in a WQUT based "Battle of the Bands".  Later he played in a local tri-citie sband called "Roccoco".  He later joined Cold Steel and was with them the whole time that band was playing.  Jeff and J.R. have been playing together since 1994.  Jeff plays lead guitar, mandolin, banjo, harmonica and does vocals as well as running Acoustifried's sound.
