The band’s third release, Essential Tremors is the most far-ranging and eclectic album in the band’s history. Their blend of classic rock & roll emphasized by rapturous hooks, riffs and rhythms, coupled with Motown flavor and funky charm brings out a pure Bacchanalian splendor. J. Roddy’s arresting voice and thumping piano playing travels directly from your eardrums to your bone marrow as he keens, croons and intones words and music that are at turns lunatic and mystic. Their relentless touring and trademark spirited live performances has helped J. Roddy Walston & The Business grow from a grass roots movement into a band with a loyal and expansive following. Joined by born and bred Valdostan Mark Neill, the Grammy-winning producer and engineer of Black Keys’ Brothers and Matt Wignall (Cold War Kids, Delta Spirit), J. Roddy and co. manifested eleven immersive and relentless tracks that now comprise their third album Essential Tremors. From the explosive raw power of “Heavy Bells” to the hymnal reverberations of “Sweat Shock” to the contemplative, soulful call of “Boys Can Never Tell”, Essential Tremors demonstrates the band’s growth into becoming one of the forerunners in rock ‘n roll today. Long time road warriors, the band has toured with the likes of Deer Tick and The Hold Steady and is fresh off a set of dates with The Lumineers.
