Alive After Five: Jocelyn & Chris Arndt

Grove Plaza, Aug. 15


Generally when siblings who've both graduated from Harvard make the news, it's for their prowess as doctors, lawyers, scientists or tech moguls. But Jocelyn & Chris Arndt aren't your typical Ivy League brother-sister duo. Even before graduation, the pair kicked off a musical career that has produced five albums and earned media praise nationwide—a far cry from hitting each other with shovels in the sandbox, where it likely all began. Even better, the duo's sound is as unique as its story. Jocelyn's powerful voice—which one Rock and Blues Muse writer claimed "grabs you by the throat and slams you to the dojo floor"—pairs perfectly with Chris's virtuosic guitar, producing tracks that are part country twang and part '80s rock, with a dark bluesy flavor layered across both.
