Driven is a Houston, Texas-based rock band, with years of road experience behind them - and ahead of them.
Driven is backed by the second generation of bluesrock royalty – sons of the legendary Mean Gene Kelton - Sid on drums and Jamie on bass. They were getting paid to play before they were in high school - Texas roadhouses and biker bars were their playground.
Speaking of keeping it in the family, on guitar and backing vox is Raymond Stewart, a lifelong player and son of legendary Texas Country artist Bob Stewart.
Having grown up in East Texas, Sid and Jamie Kelton were always jamming with guys their own age, and Micah Pullen has been there since the beginning of Driven back in the late 1980s. He broke off and started Mudflap Vinyl, but came back to Driven when he realized the Driven groove was where the music lives.
Found wandering the streets of Baytown, the newest member of Driven is none other than front man John Pickens - new to Texas and getting broke in right, the Driven way! His sound is fresh, he's energetic, and the fans will truly dig his awesome range and great personality.
The band is gelling together and writing new songs for a much-anticipated upcoming CD, a follow up to their acclaimed side project "Clovis."
With John's lead vocals, two distinct and experienced guitar players, and the Kelton brothers holding down the rhythm, Driven is back, and ready to rock.
Come out and see Driven soon. You won't be disappointed.
