“They bring a regard for the old-time music into this bluegrass so that it has a richness that is pretty much lost in modern bluegrass.” -- Bluegrass Unlimited

“Mix blazing old-time fiddle with 3-finger bluegrass banjo picking and pounding bass, add a super cool visual aesthetic, and play it hard as hell the old way.” -- Folk Alley

Hard Drive is a hard-driving aural modern traditional old time authentic millennial bluegrass collective. From brother duets to raging fiddle tunes, Hard Drive brings a sense of deep intuition and silliness to the world that encompasses old-time, country, and bluegrass. The Bluegrass Situation describes the band as “a delightful subversion of our expectations of what traditional bluegrass is supposed to be.” Hard Drive serves up a “high-octane bluegrass-old-time style, delivered with deep intuitive insight, manic exploratory zeal and seriously powerhouse instrumental (and vocal) chops but also, importantly, with an abundant and overwhelming sense of fun.” [Folk Radio UK]. They float gently around a Bermuda-Triangle-type spacetime warp in central North Carolina, and they are constantly expanding at the approximate pace of the universe.
