The J.O.B. was formed by Jim O'Ferrell (guitar & vocals) and Jason Crawford (lead guitar) when Jim returned from the War in Iraq in 2008. Intended to record original songs inspired by Jim's wartime experience, The J.O.B. has evolved into a hard-hitting alternative rock band with 6 studio albums and 3 singles appearing on FMQB Top 40 charts. The J.O.B. has a diverse rock & roll sensibility with blues and Americana influences. Rounding out this four piece group is Jared Merrill on bass guitar & backing vocals and Eric Bandy on drums.
The band's 6th studio album, "Highway of Shadows" was selected by The Auricular as one of the '50 Best Richmond Records of 2018'
The J.O.B. has performed scores of live shows throughout the eastern United States, including live television and in-studio radio performances. Their music enjoys airtime on commercial & independent radio stations worldwide.
