Brothers Jake (Vox/Bass) and Daniel Sproul (Guitars/Vox) and Nate Barnes (drums) have toured the world and have been honored to play with some of their idols. The boys did a string of dates opening for The Who in 2007 and they were even joined on stage in Chicago by none other than Pete Townshend, who jammed on the Who classic “Young Man Blues” and Rose Hill Drive’s very own “Raise Your Hands.”
Rolling Stone named Rose Hill Drive "One of the Top 10 Artists to Watch" in 2007; the band has shared stages with everyone from Wilco to Queens Of The Stone Age.
“Recorded in our hometown in our favorite studio with our favorite people, this music bears our most authentic signature of anything we have created so far. To have made an album like this with my brother and my best friend has been a dream come true,” Jake Sproul said. “To me, this album is who we are creatively as a group. These songs are mementos of our memories experiencing life as musical gypsies, and were born on the road in sweat and blood and the search for a deeper love while constantly moving. They give me that one-of-a-kind feeling of keeping it together.”
