Predominately hailing from the Midwest, DORYDRIVE is an alternative, pop rock act that has infected listeners all over the globe! Originating in Nashville, TN DORYDRIVE'S hybrid of pop, country, and rock has captivated all who listen, and their public demand has kept them on the road for the better part of 2 years. Garnering attention from A&R executives including Atlantic, Universal-Republic, Eleven Seven, and RCA in 2013, DORYDRIVE was sure to make their move to the national stage whether signing to a major or choosing the independent path.
DORYDRIVE sprung into life in the early spring of 2010. The bands make-up consists of Mathieu Nevitt former front man of Atlanta, GA based (Rock Ridge/Warner) active rock group Echovalve, along side the quartet of Joey Zak, TomE LaBrosse, Henry Koller, and Nicholas Mendini of the Milwaukee, WI power house Marashino. Seasoned veterans excited to embark on a new chapter, DORYDRIVE continues to tour relentlessly and has had the pleasure of supporting Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Sevendust, Fuel, Candlebox, James Durbin, Adelita’s Way, Pop Evil, Hinder, Hollywood Undead, 10 years, and so many others. In late 2012 Dorydrive independently released their freshman album (Calling on Angels). With thousands of copies sold and a couple awards to boot, the album was an indie success.
Anticipating big moves in 2014, DORYDRIVE signed with the upstart independent label First Launch Records, (a division of BLU Entertainment Group) bases out of the Midwest. FLR boasts credentials garnered from years of experience in the music industry, and a chance for DORYDRIVE to be a main focus. Together, and working with FLR producer Erik Nelson the group has blossomed and is now ready to release their freshman effort on February 25th 2014. (Here's to You) will mark the beginning of a long lasting and successful relationship with the Band and Label. The impact date for DORYDRIVE'S album titled single (Here's to You) hits national active and adult contemporary radio January 21st.
