Sat Aug 20 2022 – 7:30 PM
location: The Bomb Factory
For The Driver Era, music cant and shouldnt be forced. The band, formed by brothers Ross and Rocky Lynch in 2018 while on tour with their former group R5, aims to embrace the present moment, creating songs that reflect each experience and feeling as it comes. Its a philosophy that pervades all of the duos releases, from their debut single Preacher Man to their 2019 album X to their latest effort, Girlfriend.The new album, written and produced by Ross and Rocky in their home studio, encapsulates the past few years of their lives, including songs that date back to 2016 alongside songs written in 2021. The tracks showcase a variety of influences, like INXS, Bruce Springsteen and Prince, and the album features a diverse array of styles, notably pulling on the musicians love of hip-hop producers like Pharrell and will.i.am. Its an album connected by its creators, rather than an overall theme, and it contains only a handful of the massive amount of songs the pair has written recently.
