JRWATB have been road warriors and an underground favorite from the time they formed in 2002. In the fall of 2013 their album Essential Tremors gained commercial and critical acclaim and lived on the Heatseekers chart for 6+ consecutive months with singles “Take It As It Comes” and “Heavy Bells”, reaching #9 and #12 at alternative radio, respectively. Essential Tremors tracks were also utilized in TV spots for Coors Light, ESPN and Showtime’s “Quarry”.
In 2013 the band also poured their songs and sweat onto the festival stages of Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Newport Folk Festival and the TV sound stages of Late Night with David Letterman, Conan and Austin City Limits for the first time.
