Song Review - 'Rocket Ship'

"Rocket ship" has a real classic rock vibe, and seems to have a bit of a country music influence as well. The acoustic guitars shine like a starlit night on this track, and set a perfect back drop to the overall feel of the production.

Review - 'Footprints in the Sand'

Previously impressing with the tracks “Statue” and “Good Gracious Love,” JRtheBand succeeds again with the engaging “Footprints in the Sand.” 

OBSCURE SOUND

'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.

MUSIC INJECTION

JRtheBand releases a single called ‘Good Gracious Love’

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.

Review - 'Statue'

“Statue” is a stirring new track from JRtheBand, with lyrics reflecting the height of panic that sleep paralysis brings.

@Skopemag Q&A

JRTheBand isn’t exactly a band, nor is it a one-man-band. It’s JR (real name, Jeremy), along with a drummer, Jeff Stanley. However, JR is the driving force behind this music, and took a little time to tell us about himself.
