Road Warriors

Roots and southern rockers, J. Roddy Walston & The Business have been road warriors since their formation in 2002 in Richmond, Virginia. Regulars on big festival stages such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits, J. Roddy and the band has experienced explosive growth in its fan base thanks to its incredible live shows and studio recordings.

Bringing an edge to the party, Ripe’s high-energy, feel-good music has garnered them live and streaming fans alike. The band’s breakout album “Hey Hello” put them on the charts and its tracks such as “Pretty Dirty (In the Fading Light)” and “Goon Squad” have each clocked around 2 million Spotify streams, and regular appearances at Levitate and Summer Camp Music Festivals have solidified Ripe’s spot on the music scene.
