Richmond, Virginia (USA) - Independent recording artist 'The J.O.B.' is taking no time off to rest while their newest single 'Feel' is trekking up the adult contemporary music charts in the United States. 'Feel' reached #37 this week and is the band's second single to reach the AC Top 40 Chart this year (FMQB 10/10/12). Their previous 2012 release 'Messenger' emerged on radio spin charts in January, reached #28 in March and spent 5 weeks in the AC Top 40 in the USA.

The new modern rock single 'Feel' is also being distributed as a music video and has just been released as a Music Monster game application available for smartphones through the Apple Store and Android Market.

"It is a rapidly evolving music industry, hard to predict and hard to track from our level," says the band's frontman and manager Jim O'Ferrell. "Traditional models for marketing and promotion are muddy, out of date, and just not practical for a struggling independent artist trying to make music and pay the bills," he
added. "Ask 10 music pros how to best get your songs to potential listeners and you'll get 10 different answers. We're going with a combo approach; radio spins, music video streams, and game applications," he said. "We have a great song with 'Feel'. We just need it to shine a little brighter and sing a little louder than the other great songs floating around out there."

When asked to describe the new single, O'Ferrell says, "It is an upbeat, dance around the pub kinda song that sings of the delightful anticipation of a new found love."

The 'Feel' music video does not feature images of the band at all, rather it is a fun three and a half minute romantic comedy, a stand alone mini-movie that visually portrays the story of the song. 'Feel' is intelligently written with superb musicianship and excellent production. The J.O.B. is a creatively passionate four piece band who performs their music extremely tight. Their musical compositions are meticulously precise, but come across as effortless. The band is now back in the recording studio working on new songs to complete an EP for release in early 2013.

Keep an ear and an eye on 'The J.O.B.' in the months to come. 'Feel' can be heard at any of the links below and the band's discography is available on CD Baby, iTunes, and all the other major online digital music services.

The band's Official Website is at www.thejoband.com; the Official Facebook page is at www.facebook.com/thejoband; the new smartphone game app is at
www.musicmonstersgame.com/thejob, and the band's Official YouTube Channel is at www.youtube.com/thejobandtv. It's time to introduce yourself to The J.O.B.
