Lead Guitar, Background Singer.


Please contact strivebooking if you are interested in becoming our lead guitarist.

Strive is a Hard Rock band formed out of Northern New Jersey. Since our inception, we’ve opened for national touring acts such as Halestorm, The Used, Sebastian Bach, 10 Years, and Like A Storm. Fussing borderline metal riffs, anthemic pop/rock choruses, and a hard hitting rhythm section their sound has been favorably compared to contemporary rock bands such as Papa Roach, Shinedown, and Paramore. We are currently working on our first LP with Mitch Milan, who has worked with many respectable bands like Breaking Benjamin, Sleeping with Sirens, The Pretty Reckless, Of Mice & Men, and many others.

We have also made a splash in the NJ cover scene as well, and are represented by Monte Productions LLC. We cover artists from all different time periods of music ranging from Classic Rock - Grunge - Early 2000’s - Top 40. This helps to fund our recordings, gigging equipment, and band merchandise. We’ve played in many of Jersey’s top locations such as Midland Brewhouse, Bar A, Maxwell’s, and the Stone Poney.
