Recorded at the Palace Theatre in front of a live audience to benefit the Cash For Coats program, this episode of The Palace Sessions features Billboard Triple A Top 40 Artist Jocelyn & Chris and special guests Laveda.
Jocelyn & Chris and their band have charted four consecutive commercial radio singles in the Billboard AAA Top 40, taken two records to #1 on the Relix Jambands Top 30 Album Chart, and appeared nationally on NBC’s Today Show. The siblings, both recent graduates of Harvard University, have balanced college with performances coast to coast and recording seven records featuring special guests including Cory Wong (Vulfpeck), G. Love, Byron Isaacs (Lumineers), and Gov’t Mule’s Danny Louis. Jocelyn & Chris’s new single “Sugar and Spice,” released in July 2021, was lauded by American Songwriter as “pure American rock goodness” and was a Most Added US Radio Single for three consecutive weeks. The video for the track was also added to rotation on MTV. On August 9, 2021 “Sugar and Spice” debuted on Billboard AAA Top 40. Additional media coverage for Jocelyn & Chris includes Baeble, Huffington Post, NowThis, Paste, Daily Mail, Sirius XM, The Daily Beast, Cheddar TV, People, Jam in the Van, Hollywood Reporter, and numerous others.
Hailing from NY, indie dream pop/rock outfit genre blending project, Laveda set nostalgic and cinematic moods with a 90’s-esque reverberated guitar driven sound reminiscent of The Sundays or My Bloody Valentine. Despite the common tropes of the shoegaze revival movement, Laveda are able to maintain polished pop vocal performances similar to that of Billie Eilish. Founding members Ali and Jake voice the concerns of today’s younger generation in their song, Better Now and say that this is the main theme throughout their debut record “What Happens After”. The band has played extensively in and around the New England/NYC area and completed a full Northeastern US/Canada tour in summer 2019.
