Truth Is Where It's Always Been
The Getaway Drivers radiate edgy, melodious, alt-rock energy from the infamously progressive heartland outpost of Madison, Wisconsin. Gritty western blues, lush pop ballads, driving progressive rock, sweet-tea country nostalgia and even an oddly majestic instrumental somehow find common ground in the silky, dark acoustic guitar framework; the pairing of cracked-leather and mercury smooth vocals; a personalized cello style fusing orchestral grandeur with possessed, beautifully-fractured harmonics; bluesy, growling electric guitar, spooky-sweet touches of mandolin, lap steel, and fiddle, and a relentlessly solid rhythm section. '...well beyond the standard heartland-rock sound...' -Scott Gordon, Madison City Editor, The Onion. '...The Getaway Drivers are clearly onto something...they could find themselves making inroads into a much larger market... -Tom Laskin, Isthmus '...eclectic, beautiful...they rock. Period'' -Lee Rayburn, WXXM, Madison, WI.
