Published Mar 28, 2020Sam Roberts may be separated from his namesake band due to physical distancing in an effort to slow the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but that hasn't stopped him from finding players to jam with. The rocker has teamed up with his three children for an adorable version of one of his songs.
Appropriately performing "We're All In This Together" from Sam Roberts Band's 2014 album Lo-Fantasy, the quartet — performing as the Isolation Jubilation Sensation — features Roberts on acoustic guitar, his two daughters on violin and his son on piano.
The acoustic rendition of the upbeat tune features unison vocals, impressive playing from the Roberts kids, and plenty of adorable glances at each other.
The performance is dedicated to the medical personnel on the front lines of fighting the pandemic. Roberts adds, "To everyone who's been staying at home practicing social distancing, keep it up and we're gonna get through this."
Watch the heartwarming clip below. Roberts recently joined members of Sloan, Hollerado and Tokyo Police Club in supergroup Anyway Gang; their self-titled debut album was released last year. Sam Roberts Band's last album was 2016's TerraForm.
