Now I'm not suggesting that the CCM audience is second rate, or that they don't know their music, but I might be suggesting that some record companies really waste some great artists by only giving them access to that limited crowd. Dryve from America's west coast is such an example. Not a bunch of pretty boys, not worried by trends or fashion, Dryve deliver some of the very best rock music from across the pond. This six-piece outfit have a knack for great radio tunes with a timeless feel. Second track "Nervous" is one of those songs you'll be able to slap in the CD player in 10 years and it will still be cool. The music is basically guitar bass/drum and Hammond (no need for Phil Maderia here, Dave Pratschner's B3 licks rule!) and might just give a nod to some of the Brit pop thing. but no copycats here, the only band that sound like Dryve is Dryve! Once again, only a USA release so it might cost you a few quid more for this from some of our import mates, but if intelligent, well played grown up rock music is your cup o'coffee, then skip that Big Mac on Saturday and invest in some serious musical nourishment! Full marks.
