Brother-Sister Duo Jocelyn and Chris Arndt Release Knock Out Version of “Give Me One Reason”

Up-and-coming sibling duo Jocelyn & Chris Arndt have premiered their brand new cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason (Live from Rock N Roots Festival)” via BandsInTown. Fans can check out their soulful take on this classic track now.

Be prepared to be blown away by Jocelyn’s husky, seductive voice as she belts out one of her favorite songs.

“This song is insanely fun to sing,” shares Jocelyn. “It really takes on a whole life of its own when it gets going.” Chris adds: “There’s nothing better than a solid blues jam, which is exactly what Chapman created with this tune. It just rocks!”

In March, Jocelyn and Chris released their highly anticipated album Edges, which premiered in full via Glide Magazine. Edges is comprised of 12 original tracks by Jocelyn and Chris, who are joined on the effort by their band, and special guests including G Love and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis. Edges debuted on the Jamband Top 30 albums chart at #17, bolstered by airplay on nearly 200 stations nationwide. The album has also been featured on Paste Magazine, Relix, The 405, and BaebleMusic. To purchase, please visit: jocelynandchrismusic.bandcamp.com as well as iTunes, Amazon.com, and your other favorite music outlets.

Devastatingly powerful vocals, retro-rock guitar, and lyrics that run the gamut between vulnerable to all-out venomous, Jocelyn & Chris Arndt’s music has matured into what can only be described as a throwback to pure, authentic rock. Together with their band, they logged more than 100 shows in the past 12 months with stops in 25 states and events including The Sundance Film Festival, Mountain Jam Music Festival, CMJ, SXSW 2016, and Red Gorilla. This summer Jocelyn & Chris won the audience vote as “best band” after their performance at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI.

“Her vocals come from a place so deep, so mysterious, so on fire, so colossal, that you may think for a second that she could erupt into flames at any moment.” – Poughkeepsie Journal

Their blues-rock style has been coined “a gorgeous mixture of classic rock and contemporary indie energy” by Joonbug.com. The Arndts’ recordings strike an effortless blend of angst and personal emotion, while their live performances are simply incredible.

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

Edges is the full-length follow-up to last fall’s seven-song EP Strangers In Fairyland. For more information, please visit the band’s website (information below).

Oh, yes. I spent 25 years as a librarian (nerd) mainly working with youth (creating nerds), a number of years as a teacher (more nerd indoctrination). I have my own spawn, leveled up to 22 and my partner in nerdiness. As a nerdy writer, I have found a home at Talk Nerdy With Us.
