J. Roddy Walston and the Business

Specializing in a classic-sounding Southern rock/Americana style that emphasizes songs and danceable kinetics over empty hipness and trendy pop gimmicks, J. Roddy Walston and the Business formed in Cleveland, Tennessee in 2002, moving north to Baltimore, Maryland in 2004. After a couple of lineup changes, the band solidified as a classic rock four-piece with J. Roddy Walston handling lead vocals (as well as playing guitar and piano), Billy Gordon on guitar and additional vocals, Logan Davis on bass, and Steve Colmus on drums. J. Roddy Walston and the Business' live shows have garnered them a large following wherever they play or tour. The band released an EP, LMNEP, in 2005, following it with a self-released full-length, Hail Mega Boys, in 2007. Another short-form release, Digital EP, arrived in June of 2010, with a self-titled full-length album, J. Roddy Walston and the Business, appearing from Vagrant Records a month later. A third full-length studio album, Essential Tremors, arrived in the fall of 2013. In support of the album, the band headlined its "Holler and Moan" tour and appeared at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. In 2017, they returned with the full-length Destroyers of the Soft Life, featuring the single "The Wanting." ~ Steve Leggett
