Episode 173 - Jocelyn and Chris

Volume… Loud. Hair… Long. Apologies… None. Think rock is dead? Meet Jocelyn & Chris. Two analog souls hell-bent on inciting a new rock revival.

Jocelyn & Chris and their band have charted four consecutive commercial radio singles in the Billboard AAA Top 40, taken two records to #1 on the Relix Jambands Top 30 Album Chart, and appeared nationally on NBC’s Today Show.

The siblings, both recent graduates of Harvard University, have balanced college with performances coast to coast and recording seven records featuring special guests including Cory Wong (Vulfpeck), G. Love, Byron Isaacs (Lumineers), and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis. Their latest album “Favorite Ghosts” gained immediate attention with leadoff single “Sugar and Spice,” which American Songwriter hailed as “pure American rock goodness.” The retro-funk anthem was a most-added commercial radio track across the US, and earned Jocelyn & Chris their fourth consecutive Billboard AAA Top 40 radio single, remaining on the chart for 14 weeks.

Following “Sugar and Spice,” Jocelyn & Chris released “Run Away,” an anthemic pop-rock track that channels the all-too-relatable feeling of losing hope – and then finding it again through a fresh perspective and a musical escape. “Run Away” premiered with Relix and has quickly garnered press from MTV, Celebrity Access, Guitar World, and more. The infectiously powerful track was the Billboard Most Added song in Triple A radio in the US in its first week and has active support from 40+ stations nationwide.

And because radio centers on real people and their communities, Jocelyn & Chris have opted for a unique release approach that defies industry convention. Their album “Favorite Ghosts” was given to radio exclusively prior to offering the record via streaming services this fall. Personal connection has long made radio and the people who program it a special focus for Jocelyn & Chris – and the listeners at radio’s heart will always be where they choose to tell their story first.
