Since first emerging in 2009, JR JR have defined themselves by a commitment to making intelligent pop music. In order to do so, the pair—Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott—paint with an expansive palette balancing everything from indie and alternative to hip-hop and electronic music. They achieved that balance in a big way on their self-titled third full-length album, JR JR [Warner Bros. Records] which served as the culmination of their unique camaraderie and musical collaboration thus far. By the end of 2015, heavy praise from the likes of NPR, Paste, PopMatters, Billboard, The Daily Beast and more coupled with growing attention for their initial single ‘Gone’, sparking the attention of a wide array of radio programmers and seeing the band performing on CONAN, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and The Late Show with James Corden.
Alongside critical success, the duo’s music has also become the soundtrack of choice for many working in film & television as well, with tracks recently featured in HBO’s Togetherness, trailers for Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party, I Am Cait, Please Like Me, Grandfathered, iZombie, and trailers for Showtime Network. As they continue to tour widely and perform to sold out audiences their dedication to being both smart and accessible remains their guiding formula, with JR JR now at the dawn of their next chapter.
