Harvard-grad sibling rockers Jocelyn & Chris return with “Sugar and Spice,” “a bluesy romp showing off their knack for classic song-craft” (American Songwriter) and their first release since the world health crisis took hold last year. This is a taste of their forthcoming eighth studio album. Channeling the powerhouse-style vocals of iconic female rockers like Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks blended perfectly with guitarwork calling back to greats like Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix, Jocelyn & Chris deliver a psychedelic 70s style on this funk-driven track about realities of a hot and cold relationship.
Accompanying the rocking, retro-funk anthem is the official music video. With a kaleidoscope of colors, the track’s retro influences are on full display with Jocelyn’s vocals taking center stage supported by Chris’s organic, riff-driven guitar.
Eight albums, continual touring, and their “millennial spin on classic rock” (NBC TODAY) has earned Jocelyn & Chris three consecutive commercial radio singles in the Billboard AAA Top 40 and two #1 records on the Relix Jambands Top 30 Album Chart. Their 2019 album The Fun in the Fight landed them their national TV debut with The TODAY Show and features with Huffington Post, NowThis, Paste, The Daily Beast, People, Hollywood Reporter, and numerous others.
Following “Sugar and Spice,” Jocelyn & Chris released “Run Away,” an anthemic pop-rock track that channels the all-too-relatable feeling of losing hope – and then finding it again through a fresh perspective and a musical escape. “Run Away” premiered with Relix and has quickly garnered press and adds from MTV, Celebrity Access, Guitar World, and more. The infectiously powerful track impacts Triple A radio on June 14th.
Jocelyn & Chris and their band will showcase music from the new record on the road this summer with tour dates across the US for their “Favorite Ghosts” tour, including a first-time appearance at Bourbon & Beyond in Louisville, KY, and a return to Milwaukee’s Summerfest.

ABOUT JOCELYN AND CHRIS
Sibling rockers Jocelyn & Chris learned long ago that every cloud, no matter how dark, may just have a silver lining – and as they prepare to release their eighth album Favorite Ghosts, they’ll emerge from a world on pause with a ferociously original work that might just be bottled modern-rock lightning. Instead of falling idle during the dark clouds of 2020, the siblings embraced the chance to create the most authentic, meaningful songs of their career. The album’s producers, long-time Jocelyn & Chris collaborator David Bourgeois and seven-time Grammy winner Joel Moss, were happy to facilitate the chaos, resulting in a varied, dynamic work that always chooses the power of telling a story over the temptation to conform to any one genre or style. From anthemic single “Run Away” to emotionally stark closer “My Favorite Ghost,” these songs reflect on the memories and emotions that refuse to let us go, suggesting that while we can’t change what haunts us, we can welcome it as part of who we are. For Jocelyn & Chris, who have been making music together since they were children, Favorite Ghosts is a powerful, undeniable set of songs that carries these siblings forward into a new chapter as they continue to chase their shared dream.
