As most of you know, J Roddy Walston and The Business is an American rock ‘n’ roll band that produced an incredible self-titled debut album in the summer of 2010.
Some of you even know that half of the band, including Walston, have relocated and are now fellow Richmond city dwellers. And I hope all of you are all fully aware that today marks the release of the bands follow up album, “Essential Tremors.”
“Essential Tremors” takes everything you love about J Roddy Walston and The Business and brings it up to a whole new level.
The amazing storytelling in each song is still there, and the signature vocals and hard rock piano you have come to love and expect are still present. But then you hear gems like “Take It As It Comes,” and “Boys Can Never Tell,” and you can feel a new side and maturity to the band. Taking it even further, “Nobody Knows” embodies all the makings of a great ballad that will cause lighters to be thrust into the air at their shows as the crowd sways along in perfect harmony.
You can stream the album here as a preview: https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Fplaylists%2F9378925%3Fsecret_token%3Ds-5A2QF
