Oh, hi! Didn't see you there! Guess it's been a minute, eh? Well, we just wanted to check in and let you know that good stuff is happening in Drive TFC land. We've got something to share with you, but not just yet. Allow us to be cagey for a few days, ha ha! In the mean time, we'll be telling you about some of the cool stuff we're up to in other parts of our musical lives. For starters, check out our bassist Jamie's band, Cherry Ames. They're playing out around DC, and you should seriously go catch them live. Because... you know... they're good. Really good.
It is with deep sadness that we learn of the death of Jay Austin, an early supporter of Drive TFC who graciously allowed us to shoot our first video in his home (https://youtu.be/TzDq-70CFCY). The world can be such an unkind place. Take care of one another, friends.
Every member of our band hears and experiences music differently. Sometimes—only sometimes ;)—we maybe fight about it. But the fact is that sensory perception is incredibly unique, and there is no “right” way to hear, perceive, or appreciate music. We hope you dig what we do. And if you don’t, we can accept that you might just be hearing something entirely different. Thank goodness for wondrous variety.
It would be hard to overstate just how awesome last night was for us. We had two incredibly talented women — a cellist and a mezzosoprano — sit in with us as we detailed the song we wrote for the opening credits of Harmony from Hand Me Down Films. You guys, it sounded all kinds of wonderful, if we do say so ourselves. We can’t wait to share the final product with you! #welcometoharmony #localmusic #femalefueled #indiefilm

Come join us this evening. We'll play you music on a [email protected]$&ing pirate ship, yaaaaaargh!
As an emerging band that could hardly be characterized as wildly famous yet, we receive a lot of scam emails that are designed to prey on desperate, naive artists hoping for their big break. We suppose, however, that there's a certain distinction in having attracted the same morons who thought they'd "discovered" Annie Lennox a few months ago. Email chain below, link to the Annie story. Be careful out there, folks. There is no shortage of people who will take advantage of the vulnerable. ******** Dear Drive TFC, Maria here from KMIX Radio Los Angeles. I came across your music and really like what I heard! I’m the Emerging Artist Coordinator for a station that has over 100,000 unique listeners each month. I find artists who I think have potential and get them in rotation on our station. If you’d like, go ahead and send me over the song MP3 file for your latest single. I’ll forward it to Stryker our program director here at KMIX to see if he’s interested in putting it in rotation. Also, what sort of support campaign do you have going on for your single (press, video, licensing, etc)? I ask because even if we do get your single in rotation right now, our parent company is a large artist development firm that can get you onto over 150 radio stations worldwide and provide support for press, video, retail and licensing. The best part is, if they like what they hear, they’ll cover all of the marketing expenses. You can check them out at www.TheAkademia.com. Please let them know Maria referred you. Let me know your thoughts and be sure to send me that MP3! Sincerely, Maria ********* Our response: Yeeeaaaaaaaaah... You're the same geniuses who "discovered" Annie Lennox two months ago. Not your finest moment, eh? We'll pass, thanks.
