Stone Driver

Space Rock

Stone Driver is a critically acclaimed rock band based in Washington, DC with Chad Lesch, Tim Boyer, John Gossart, and Dan Epley.

Stone Driver pulls from a wide diversity of musical influences, from Pink Floyd to Alice in Chains, blues rock to progressive, to create meaningful, relevant, and real music.

Stone Driver completed their second album "Rocks" with London, UK based producer Sefi Carmel, who has produced music for other notable artists David Bowie, Phil Collins, Bruno Mars, and BB King.

Stone Driver has been featured on both national & international media outlets, and has generated a diverse fan base of modern rock, blues, grunge, and classic rock aficionados. Stone Driver and its members have shared venue billings with Living Colour, the B-52s, Radiohead, The Whirlees, Hole, and Soundgarden.

New concert news; Stone Driver is stoked to be rocking at Jammin Java on Saturday, March 11th, for a fun matinee show along with other great bands Yellow Tie Guy, Since Antarctica, and Bruce Parker from Crooked Crow. More info to follow soon, cheers!
