Race fans, start your engines! Or at least give the band Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. a listen. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. hails from Detroit, Michigan and Michiganders should be proud to see this band on the rise. They’ve been featured as the cover stories for both Reel Detroit Weekly and Metro Times magazines in Detroit, played in Lollapalooza this past weekend, are writing a bi-weekly sports blog for ESPN, and just released their first album nationally. Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott make up the duo and are well on their way to the music big leagues.
Formed back in 2009, these Detroiters have developed their indie pop/rock sound and are turning heads to their music, especially the heads of all the NASCAR fans out there. Epstein and Zott play on the band name by wearing NASCAR race crew jumpsuits at their shows and will always have an American flag on stage. Their high energy, catchy lyrics, and great music will put you in a good mood anytime of the day.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. put out their Horse Power EP on Quite Scientific Records July 2010 and just released their debut album It’s A Corporate World this past June on Quite Scientific and Warner Bros. Records. ~Jon Miller, Music Director
