"In the fall of 2011 Scott Collins was looking to form a backing band to play behind his original music. Over the course of the next several months, that backing band took on new life and became more than just support, they became: Southbound Drive. Pulling from hard-rock, folk, western, and with a real F-YOU attitude, SBD began to gain traction the Austin music scene.
Comprised of four talented and well-traveled musicians, Southbound Drive looks to bring you in with catchy hooks, enlightening lyrics, and a killer live show. Principle songwriter and singer Scott Collins brings honesty to the stage and sings with forceful energy. On lead guitar, Ryan Goebel shifts between soulful guitar lines that tastefully compliment Collins on acoustic guitar and face-melting solos. Anchoring the group is long time bass man Lucas Griffin. Solid and in the pocket, Griffin brings stability and groove all at once. The newest member, and last piece to the puzzle is drummer Ryan Greenblatt. Quickly becoming the backbone of the band, Greenblatt brings presence and power to the kit, all the while building the foundation of the band with Griffin's bass and providing a steady back beat.
Currently, SBD is out supporting it's first release Agnes, a seven song EP recorded under the guidance of super-producer Chris "Frenchie" Smith, and they currently have a single titled "Mexico" featured on Roger Allen's Lone Star State of Mind on 93.3 KGSR in Austin. SBD is on a mission to bring their brand of rock n' roll to the masses. SBD wants to crank the volume, pull down the shades, and rock your face. With electrifying live-shows and the will to outwork and outplay most everyone else, they are band not to miss."
The Continuums are not a band that formed by chance. In fact, the four-piece rock band from Austin, Texas has been preparing for this moment all of their lives. With the release of their debut EP “Crossing Caswell,” The Continuums plan on spreading their experimental and raw rock and roll to people of all ages.
With a sound rooted in classic rock giants like Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones, The Continuums have also forged their sound in the ways of modern rock bands like The Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon. This combination of influences along with their tight-fitting clothing, long hair, and overall intensity gives audiences a nostalgic feeling of the late 1960s or early 1970s, only in a modern setting. The Continuums truly give everything they have every time they hit the stage and their audience has begun to take notice.
The band that formed in April 2011 is composed of Ries brothers Austin (lead guitar) and Morgan (drums), lead vocalist Barrett Boswell, and bassists Josh Bruner. All four members originate from a small suburban town outside of Fort Worth, Texas, but moved to Austin to chase their dream of making music with southern roots and pop appeal.
Currently unsigned, The Continuums are making everything happen on their own. Over the last year, they have been working hard in the studio while also making a name for themselves in local clubs and venues all over Austin. Not only is the band constantly forming their sound and stage presence, but they are also getting new fans each week and even gaining some attraction as a hot new band to watch in the upcoming months.
