Stone Driver Q&A

Your name: 

Where are you from?
Washington, DC.

Name of band: 
Stone Driver

Who is in your band? 
Rich Whitcomb on drums, Tim Boyer on bass and vocals, Chad Lesch on lead guitar and atmospherics.

How would you describe yourselves?
Somewhere between psychedelic grunge and space rock.

Who are your main influences musically?
Pearl Jam, Jimi Hendrix, Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Pink Floyd

What do you hope to achieve in music?
To create something new and relevant that we can be proud of as musicians, while still finding a connection with the audience that can weather the test of time.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Linking up with Rich and Tim has been the highlight; when you connect musically with the right group of cats and "click" you know it, it's one of the greatest feelings in the world for musicians. Next to that I'd say getting our first two singles produced and published.

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Once auditioned a drummer (not Rich) who pulled out a real pirate sword at practice and waved it in the air in a drunken stupor, sharing that it was the means in which he resolved differences of opinion with his prior guitarist. That was unique, but fortunately Rich has kept all of his cutlery in the kitchen thus far.

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
I'm going to cheat and pick two; "Clean Slate" has some strong grunge and Hendrix influences, while "Prism" really captures our space rock vibe.

Where can we listen to it?

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band/music that I forgot to ask?
Expect some new material to be released shortly; we've been hitting the WDC gig scene hard but are looking forward to getting back in the studio. Thanks to our fans and friends for their continued support!
