Stone Driver has Landed on Flyah

Stone Driver is a second act for all of us.  Individually we'd each played in various bands and lineups (including our drummer in some well established acts like the Whirlies and Everclear), but eventually moved on into more conventional career pursuits.

So we went on to become a soldier, a diplomat, a scientist and a pharmacist, but emerged from these endeavors (and from far flung places like Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan), finding music again, and each other to become Stone Driver.
Listen to any songs from our vast catalog of original material and you will find each of our respective--and diverse--influences. Rock, indie, college, blues, classic, are all present. But our collective sound is a thing we call Space Grunge. We love to bring the audience in close with hook and then knock them over with a crushing turnaround of power chords and driving rhythm. We put on a great live show and have a lot of fun with the crowd.

More than anything, we want to take another swing at getting out there and showing people in and outside of DC that we are a force to be reckoned with on the rock stage. We believe in our music and message and need only a chance to bring it to a wider and more diverse audience. We welcome opportunity to achieve this and you will not be disappointed when you select us to grace a stage.

We work tirelessly to put on an incredible show and to represent our venues and fans with honor. We will also pull out all the stops to pack each venue with rabid supporters and to reel in those who don't yet know us with our sound and energy.

Give Stone Driver a slot and you'll be asking us back--guaranteed.

Stone Driver "Descent" Album Review – DC Rock Live

"Do you remember when music was free from irony? It has been a while, but there was a brief period in my youth where every band took the approach of Stone Driver. They just wanted to rock out with straightforward heartfelt songs.

Music got a lot more complicated, and while better in some ways, we can be happy we still have bands that know how to rock. And Stone Driver does that plenty on this record, but offers a fair amount of variety within their sound. They have some psyche tones in ‘Prism’, offer acoustic moments, with different rhythms and guitar sounds throughout.

They are a fairly new band on the DC scene, but they clearly have veteran players that know how to bring out the best in a song. If you want thoroughly modern slacker attitude, there are some choices on this list, but for real rock fans, check this out."

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
