Jr. Thomas & The Volcanos sophomore effort Rockstone is more than just a love letter to the roots of Jamaican music. Its an actual love letter. Tom McDowall aka Jr. Thomas explains, I could write a musical love letter to all things I loved: my wife, my family, my friends, my band mates. I could write a song to tell me to Chin Up when times got tough. I could give gratitude to the Jamaican artists that paved the way for the beautiful music we now call reggae. I could write a song about what its like to lose someone important to you. Or write a song to invigorate me spiritually. Music is healing and thats the best therapy there is for me. Rockstone isnt just another throwback record to an era gone by. Its a record that takes risk within the genre, but more importantly its a genuinely honest record. I called the album Rockstone because true love cannot be defeated. It lives forever. We write tributes on our tombstones because they live on beyond our lives as a remembrance of something special and important to us.
