I am a proud family man. I am hip hop. I am also the VP of A&R at Block Starz Music
Shrive (Cary, Jordan, and -former bassist- Justin) met playing music together at a small church in Raleigh in 2011. Since all three grew up playing music with multiple bands, churches, and around town, it was inevitable they would end up writing music of their own. After Justin had to move to Iowa in 2012, Shrive was down to Cary and Jordan. While still looking for a bassist, they haven't slowed down one bit. Full of driving, rhythm guitars, melodies, and giant drums, it's clear they come from an era when grunge and alternative rock ruled music - it shows in just about every song. They are about to embark on recording their first full length record this summer.
