Quitting Whitney
Quitting Whitney
Born 2019, Quitting Whitney is vocalist/guitarist/bassist Matt Rucker and drummer Ryan Linderman.
After first meeting in LA, it wasn’t long before the two teamed up to bring their respective musical impulses to life, working together to create a unique sound that blends stadium rock and whirling synth, with cutting guitar and ambient vocals, all driven by heavy-hitting powerhouse drums.
Their first single, Turn Around, is quickly gaining momentum on the interweb and the buzz is only growing.
Hunter Porter
Hunter Porter
Known for his progressive song writing and energetic live performances, Hunter’s singer/songwriter career began in 2015 with the recording of two sun-stained garage/surf-punk EP’s with the production team Underliners in association with Pool Party Records. Amidst multiple nationwide tours working as a hired guitarist, Hunter refined his aesthetic into a more somber approach while still maintaining the foothold of his lo-fi roots. Moonlighting as the creator of the narrative music podcast NEW NOISE, his solo act represents his most stylized artistic endeavor.
The Drive
The Drive
The Drive is an Alt/pop/rock band with influences that span from The Killers and U2 to The 1975 and Marshmello. The brothers have also been heavily influenced by cinema scores.

“I could’ve changed this; I could’ve written this from the heart.” (The Drive, Faithless)
This was the idea built around the band name The Drive, meaning the passion, discipline, and perseverance needed to accomplish something that would last or make its mark. So, when brainstorming possible band names, two brothers from Los Angeles decided on The Drive as a constant reminder of the work they must put in. Daniel Griffin (vocals, keys, guitar) and Isaac Griffin (drums) formed the band in the basement of their father’s pub. They would work on writing and performing music together anytime they were not in school or bussing tables. It was at this pub they were given a stage, and fell in love with music and performing their original content.
On January 1st 2019, the brothers were able to perform their first ever original song release ‘Faithless’ to a packed house. Their father's pub, where they grew as musicians, was filled wall to wall with family, friends, and fans who had come to witness The Drive. The brothers are excited to keep releasing original material throughout 2019 and continue growing as musicians.
