ABOUT

Stone Driver is a critically acclaimed rock band from Washington, DC that harnesses grunge, blues rock, progressive, and psychedelic influences to create powerful and soulful rock music that resonates with fans both on the stage and from the studio.

In addition to writing, recording, and performing original music, Stone Driver continues to be actively involved in supporting multiple charitable organizations in the DMV community (Per Scholas, Lever Fund, Rolling Thunder, Joe Strummer Foundation, etc).

The band released their third full length album "Chasing Demons" in May 2018. Mixed by Grammy award winning engineer John Seymour (prior clients include Santana, U2, Alice In Chains, Jimi Hendrix, and the Dave Matthews Band) it is an explosive follow up to their prior two LPs, Rocks (2016) and Descent (2015).

2018 & 2017 have been breakout years for Stone Driver that included being voted as "The Best Original Band in 2018" by readers of the Washington City Paper, being endorsed by Rolling Thunder, Inc for their album release and veterans charity fundraiser at Union Stage, winning the local New Belgium Brewing Co. battle of the bands to open for Vintage Trouble at the Tour De Fat, organizing and headlining the Joe Strummer Foundation charity benefit concert at the Black Cat, being selected as one of the bands to represent DC at the 9:30 Club at the first DC Rocks Festival, and sharing the bill with the Gin Blossoms, Sugar Ray, Good Charlotte, Everclear and Bush at the Celebrate Fairfax 2018 & 2017 festivals. Notable past shows also include playing at the National Archives (with the US Constitution as their backline!), and the SXSW Showcase with the Young Pandas.

Stone Driver has been fortunate to gain over 56,800 fans via social media, and been featured on a variety of local, national and international radio stations. Stone Driver is currently working on their fourth full length album, and scheduling select shows for Summer and Fall 2018.
