ALT Artist Discoveries: J. Roddy Walston and the Business 

J. Roddy Walston and the Business is an American rock band based in Richmond, Virginia.  The band was formed in 2002 in Cleveland, Tennessee by J Roddy Walston who plays piano/guitar and does vocals.  The Business consists of Billy Gordon (lead guitar/vocals), Logan Davis (bass/vocals), and Steve Colmus (drums).

The band is known for their energetic live shows and Walston’s pounding style of playing the piano.  Instead of the raucous bombast JRWATB manifested on their breakout hit album Essential Tremors, inspiring pangs of joy in music fans that yearn for the day of Bob Seger and early Bruce Springsteen.

Check out their single “The Wanting” below and listen to them on ALT 99-5.
