Indie-Pop Band from Detroit

JR JR Biography

JR JR, formerly known as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., is an American indie-pop band from Detroit, Michigan, consisting of Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein. Zott and Epstein met each other while playing in other Detroit music projects. They began recording in Zott's basement in Royal Oak, Michigan in late 2009.

Initially beginning as an exercise in collaboration undertaken with very little intention of ever being publicly consumed, the band’s trajectory has been as unexpected as it has been unlikely. In just a few short years, fans have seen the project grow from basement recording project--to media curiosity--to an international touring ensemble widely recognized for their joy-fueled live offerings.

While Epstein and Zott have no ties to popular NASCAR circuit driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. nor his late father, the band’s peculiar name was initially suggested to the pair on a lark. The pair assert that the strange moniker has been kept in tact due to the freedom they came to realize such a title gave them to explore whatever musical endeavors they could think up. “The idea being”, Epstein says, “that if one can accept a band being named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., then you’ve already opened yourself up to listening to anything that band can come up with. You’ve already decided to leave expectations behind”. In 2015, however, the band ended up changing their name to JR JR, but will never forget their roots.

From that mantra, the foundation of their partnership was built. Each having spent a good deal of time in various recording and performance environments prior to working with one another, Epstein & Zott set out to explore the many intricacies of cross-genre songwriting and production together with a willingness to borrow as much from the Beach Boys as the Geto Boys if it meant a more dynamic form of pop music. An organic vs. synthesized perspective which by necessity lacked a specified audience or desired outcome, outside of challenging oneself.

    The band Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. had a solid imprint on the psyche of indie pop, from their critically lauded 2010 EPs Horsepower and My Love Is Easy, which got the Detroit group signed to Warner Brothers, all the way through their two LPs, It’s A Corporate World and The Speed of Things. Their peppy, positive electro pop rock won over fans almost immediately, including their namesake NASCAR...

  • KCRW Presents: JR JR

    JR JR started winning us over with its catchy pop songs five years ago, when the band went by the name Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Now, the group is starting a fresh chapter with a new name, but that doesn't stop Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott from employing an old trick in their single "Gone" — that unmistakable whistle hook.
