“Jocelyn & Chris Arndt OWNED the stage with inferno-like intensity… (think Amy Winehouse X Janis Joplin X Fiona Apple)”
– Edge Television Network, Hollywood California

“She can move from whisper to yell in one phrase without missing a note. The band is aggressive, tight, and very strong… The band never stays still, nor does Jocelyn, but they also never lose the audience.”
– David Singer / The Daily Gazette

“The Arndts sound like they were raised on 60ʼs rock records and would enjoy having a drink with the ghost of Janis Joplin.”
– The New York Scene Report

 

Devastatingly powerful vocals and retro-rock guitar, with lyrics that run the gamut from vulnerable to all-out venomous: siblings Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are creating a new generation of authentic album rock.

Backed by a killer band onstage, their recordings feature special guests including G. Love, Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis, Beau Sasser of Kung Fu, and legendary session players Alvin Moody,  David Baron, and Ilya Toshinsky.

Their debut full-length “Edges” and follow-up live album “30,000 Miles” reached #14 and #8 respectively on the Relix Jambands Top 30, taking their first single “Shame” into the FMQB AAA Top 200.

Their sophomore full-length “Go” was released to radio April 10th. That week it was Billboard’s #5 Most Added Single to AAA Radio in the US. The album’s lead-off single “Footprints on the Moon” is currently #64 on the FMQB AAA Top 100 after five weeks with airplay coast to coast.

In May, “Go” debuted at #2 on The Jambands Top 30 Album Chart.

Together with their band, Jocelyn & Chris have logged performances across the country, including stops at The Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, SXSW, CMJ, The Viper Room and Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, Milwaukee Summerfest*, The Birchmere in Alexandria, and numerous other top venues and events. They’ve provided direct support for Vertical Horizon, Delta Rae, Little Feat, Marc Cohn, the Gin Blossoms, Rick Derringer, Denis DeYoung, Sunny Sweeney, Here Come the Mummies, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, Pat McGee Band, and Shannon LaBrie.

*In July, Jocelyn & Chris won the audience vote for “best band” on the emerging artist stage at Summerfest in Milwaukee.
