Natalie Stovall and The Drive Live Up to Their Powerhouse Reputation as they brought in massive crowds during all of their performances during CRS 2014 with their serious fiddle power and exquisite stage presence. This female-fronted band is making big strides for 2014 with their self-titled debut EP and the radio release of their first single, “Baby Come On With It”.
Led by multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Natalie Stovall, The Drive includes drummer James Bavendam from Seattle, Chile’s Miguel Cancino on guitar, Zach Morse from Cheyenne, Wyoming on bass and vocals and Redding, California guitarist and vocalist Joel Dormer.
Currently, the band was recently signed with HitShop/Warner Records and have wrapped up their debut album with famed producer, Paul Worley, whose work with the likes of country icons Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum, Big and Rich, and The Band Perry have earned him five Grammy® Awards.
“When Paul told us he wanted to take this journey with us, we were over the moon,” says Natalie. “We are so thankful we have gotten to wake up everyday and grow and learn from someone like Paul.”
“After so many years playing and living in a van together, it came to a point where it didn’t matter that the posters at the venues just had my name – we had become a band. And I felt that since we walk like a band, and talk like a band and play like a band…well, then let’s just call it what it is. That’s when The Drive was born.”
The Drive’s journey has been forged like fine steel with the durable attributes of family values and hard work. They are relentless road warriors performing over 200 shows a year, they were named Entertainers of the Year in 2012 by Campus Activities Magazine and spend part of their summers in the Middle East performing at Navy Entertainment Tours in support of our troops across the globe.
They have also released their first single to Country radio this year. “Baby Come On With It” was released in January 2014 and has already gotten airplay from SiriusXM The Highway, among others.
This Nashville local favorite is on a journey that is just beginning and is sure to live up to their reputation as a powerhouse group that leaves the audience spellbound. To learn more about Natalie Stovall and The Drive visit them at www.nataliestovall.com
