JRTHEBAND HAS UNLEASHED A MONSTROUS ALT-ROCK EARWORM WITH “STRAY DOG”
Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JRtheBand dropped the video to their single Stray Dog on July 30th. If you’ve forgotten how it feels to experience a fresh new take on Alt-Rock which speaks to your soul, hit play.
Previously impressing with the tracks “Statue” and “Good Gracious Love,” JRtheBand succeeds again with the engaging “Footprints in the Sand.” Percussive pit-pats and vibrant acoustics give way to JR’s soaring vocal power to start. The “never had it better,” hook plays like a fresh summer breeze...
"Releasing this past weekend from one-man project JRtheBand, “Good Gracious Love” is a stirring success."
A charismatic, gliding guitar lead is accompanied by sporadic accompanying twangs to start, alongside suave and timeless-sounding vocals. Vocals assume a more soaring form around the one-minute mark, with a clever melodic twist coming upon the “time had come to walk away,” line shortly thereafter. Added guitar lines past the two-minute mark evoke a yearning satisfaction, with some ’80s nostalgia in the tone. The “no-win situation, train has left the station,” verse re-emerges seamlessly, with added vibrancy to the vocals as the track comes to a satisfying close.
"JRtheBand is made up of JR (Jeremy) who has the perfect vocal sound to make rock anthems that soar."
His vocal sound is varied and unique sounding. Since he could remember he has been humming tunes to himself and after a life-changing event, he suddenly realised that he should turn those hums into songs.
"“Statue” is a stirring new track from JRtheBand, with lyrics reflecting the height of panic that sleep paralysis brings."
“I recently heard Howard Stern’s interview with Billie Eilish discussing her personal struggle with sleep paralysis,” JR says. “By the time I heard her interview I had already written, recorded, and planned to release ‘Statue’ in the future. Hearing her speak about the condition caused me to re-prioritize and make this song my next release to try to help more people become aware of and share their experiences with this terrifying (but hopefully non-life-threatening) condition.”
