Jr. Thomas & The Volcanosí sophomore effort Rockstone is more than just a love letter to the roots of Jamaican music. Itís an actual love letter. Tom McDowall aka Jr. Thomas explains, ďI 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 itís like to lose someone important to you. Or write a song to invigorate me spiritually. Music is healing and thatís the best therapy there is for me.Ē Rockstone isnít just another throwback record to an era gone by. Itís a record that takes risk within the genre, but more importantly itís a genuinely honest record. ďI 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.Ē
