Sibling blues-rockers Jocelyn & Chris Arndt have propelled into the Billboard AAA Top 40 Radio Charts with their latest single, the dark and brooding "Red Stops Traffic." The song debuted at #37 earlier this week, amongst hit artists including The Killers, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Kings Of Leon, Walk The Moon, and more. Fans can check out the recently released video for "Red Stops Traffic," here.
On charting in the Top 40, Jocelyn Arndt shares: "It's been an amazing year for us. You pour your heart and soul into an album and put it out there into the world, never really knowing what's going to happen. But with "Go," we really felt like we had something. The album first started to take off on the Jamband Top 30 (all the way to #2!), and we really started to believe in what we'd made. But we really weren't prepared for this. I mean, Billboard Top 40? Up there right next to our musical heroes?! It's unreal, and it means more than we can say. What a way to round out a great year."
Siblings Jocelyn & Chris Arndt are developing an authentic retro-rock style that gives the sounds they grew up on a millennial twist. They've recorded five releases with guest players 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.
In April, Bridge Road Entertainment released Go, Jocelyn & Chris' second full-length studio album. Go remained at #2 on The Relix Jambands Top 30 Album Chart for 3 consecutive months. The first two singles from the album were Billboard's #5 and #4 Most Added Triple A Radio Singles in the US, topping out at #64 and #63 on The FMQB Triple A charts nationally.
Together with their band, Jocelyn & Chris have logged performances across the country, including stops at The Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, CMJ, and Milwaukee Summerfest, where they won the audience vote for "Best Band" on the emerging artist stage. Theyʼve played hallowed stages like The Birchmere, The Viper Room, and The Bitter End. Theyʼve provided direct support for Vertical Horizon, Little Feat, Marc Cohn, The Gin Blossoms, and many others.
Five releases. Four years touring the country. Airplay on over 200 radio stations nationwide. Two Harvard degrees (well, almost - just give Chris eight more months). No sleep. Countless broken strings. One dream, thirteen years in the making.
