When Driver Friendly first met in high school in North Houston, Texas their friendship quickly turned from hanging out after school to writing songs in a garage and playing shows around their hometown. As the band gained momentum and a loyal fan base around the area, they took a huge step and moved to Austin, TX- the live music capital of the world- to continue pursuing their dream.
Composed of lead vocalist Tyler Welsh, guitarist and vocalist Andy Lane, guitarist Nathan Parrish, bass guitarist Chris Walker, drummer Jeremi Mattern, trumpet player Juan Lopez & trombone player Andy Rector, Driver Friendly is ready to share their melodic, high energy songs with the world! The band’s fast paced anthems “Ghosts” and “Messidona” are just a small taste of what’s to come.
They are no amateurs when it comes to music videos, either. The video for “Messidona” is a 3 minute and 30 second cinematic tribute to the legendary Tom Hanks, who caught wind of the video and even shared his excitement of the band and video with his twitter followers!
Driver Friendly is a band with determination & huge dreams that plan on making music for a long time- growing not only as friends, but also as musicians. Their journey is just beginning and it already looks like it’s going to be an amazing trip.
