The Getaway Drivers

The Getaway Drivers

The Getaway Drivers radiate edgy, melodious, alt-rock energy from the infamously progressive heartland outpost of Madison, Wisconsin.

In less capable hands, their aggressive embrace of styles and moods might have proven bewildering. The Getaway Drivers carve such a deep musical signature, however, that it all works. Gritty western blues, lush pop ballads, driving progressive rock, sweet-tea country nostalgia and even an oddly majestic instrumental somehow find common ground in the silky, dark acoustic guitar framework; the pairing of cracked-leather and mercury smooth vocals; a personalized cello style fusing orchestral grandeur with possessed, beautifully-fractured harmonics; bluesy, growling electric guitar, spooky-sweet touches of mandolin, lap steel, and fiddle, and a relentlessly solid rhythm section.

"...well beyond the standard heartland-rock sound..."
—Scott Gordon, Madison City Editor, The Onion.

"...The Getaway Drivers are clearly onto something...they could find themselves making inroads into a much larger market...
—Tom Laskin, Isthmus

"...eclectic, beautiful...they rock. Period''
—Lee Rayburn, WXXM, Madison, WI.
