“They are musical chameleons with heartfelt, genuine lyrics, and Boston is lucky to have McAlister Drive as a part of the music scene.”
"Americana septet MCALISTER DRIVE feels a bit revived of late. First track, the glistening "Devil's Ghost," is worth that price by itself,
"It’s a new type of pop rock; not quite country and not quite southern rock, something else, something refreshing and new for you to rock out to."
“Fueled on the success of their most recent album and a string of successful live dates around the country, McAlister Drive are starting off the year strong. The band worked extensively through the winter on a series of new tracks and this show in Austin will allow the band the opportunity to perform them before a large new audience.”

"I’m happy I got to reacquaint myself with McAlister Drive here in New York as opposed to back home, because the change of scene, the Living Room’s listening room vibe and the eager ears around me all made it a fresh experience that I was able to drink in."
"They're one of those bands known for their on-stage epiphanies... Having built a solid reputation as a smoldering live band, McAlister Drive are set to release a new album that promises to win their new audiences."
“Massachusetts has long been known for various acts who bring something unique to the music table. With the western and central cities of MA controlling a large portion of the hardcore and metal scene, the east is brimming with some great rock and punk acts, such as the Dropkick Murphy’s and Piebald. That’s only two so let’s add another rock band to the list. Soon to be making waves and finding a home in our itunes (if they haven’t already) is McAlister Drive. The group was founded by Massachusetts native and singer songwriter Christoph Krey, who mashed up many different styles into a single, groove-producing factory. Don’t take my word for it, check out their tracks “Drowning,” ”I Wish I Knew” and “Got It Right”. One listen and you’ll know that they definitely got it right.”
"McAlister Drive had 8 shows in 6 days at SXSW and they don't have a record label?"
"McAlister Drive is the Number One Emerging New England Artist of 2009!"
“McAlister Drive has a sound tailor-made for 21st Century mainstream radio. But always making ripples below the surface are strokes of the Replacements, Cheap Trick and other power pop masters from decades gone by.”
