Overdrive Orchestra / Press

“Overdrive Orchestra is an alternative/hard rock band from the mid-Michigan area. Vocalist and guitarist Chris Cranick, bass guitarist Adam Bogues, and drummer Brandon Miller have made a name for themselves at various venues around the state. Most recently, they played several shows in the Big Rapids area where they attended school at Ferris State University. Now they have big plans for the future and I had the opportunity to chat with them on the phone to discuss their next moves.”

“Overdrive Orchestra are an alternative/rock band from Michigan – for now. Soon they’ll be relocating to Nashville to continue on their path in the music industry, which is already going great. With one EP released, another on the way and a music video for their track “Ecstasy” – not to mention their packed schedule of shows and performance at Ferris Fest – the band are well on their way to becoming a staple in their genre. We sat down to talk to them about their move, the new EP and much more. Check it out below!”

“Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today. We began our band in late 2007 for a one off show at our high school. After we graduated in 2009, we (Adam Bogues & Chris Cranick) moved to Big Rapids so we could pursue our passions for music at Ferris State University. Our drummer at the time, Cody Powers, remained in our homeland of Hartland, Michigan and we would come home every few weeks to play shows at venues like Clutch Cargo’s and the Machine Shop. Over the time we had some creative differences and Cody ended up leaving the band on good terms in summer 2011. In late 2011 Max Griffith joined the band and we immediately started working on new material. We went to our friend Zach Potter’s home studio and recorded our entire debut album ’407′ there. While recording we were able to fine-tune our sound as well as our live performances just in time for our album release in late April 2012. What do you have coming up?
