Barnaby Bright
Both classically-trained, the duo has made some cool Americana records, lived in Brooklyn, Nashville and Kansas, toured coast to coast, run out of money, toured Europe, run out of money again, won high-falutin' prizes for songwriting in New York, generally not argued, done benefit shows for prestigious US AAA radio stations, given away 200k+ tracks on Amazon, kept writing, built an audience, been named one of Amazon's Top 100 albums of the year, eaten copious amounts of vegetarian food, attracted 17k+ listeners a month on Spotify and FINALLY made a record, "This is Life," coming in late 2016, which speaks to where they've been, who they are, what they want and where they're going. It's smart pop with an authentic Americana stamp, not the other way round. Oh yeah, somewhere in there they got married, but they'd rather not talk about that.

The energy of rock n' roll is impossible to categorize – mercurial, specific to its beholder and profoundly reflective.

Formed in 2005, the band spent four years playing just about anywhere they could. "We just wanted to be able to play for any crowd and turn heads," says banjo player Joe Kollar. "We played everywhere. Coffee houses, bars, churches, rock clubs, Bluegrass festivals and the streets…a lot on the streets. We didn't make any money, but what we learned was invaluable."

From the Binghamton, New York music scene comes Driftwood, a band with a rock 'n' roll soul and a folk art mind. Carving out a name for themselves with electrifying live performances, they bring one of the most unique, raw sounds to the Americana/roots music scene. Incorporating upright bass, banjo, acoustic guitar and violin, the ghost of traditional American folk music lives in their palette. But the melodies, the harmonies and the lyrics are something else entirely.

In November 2012, Driftwood started work on their third and latest CD. Despite a grueling tour schedule and very little time at home, the recordings were finished in the summer of 2013. The self-titled new disc was recorded in a church outside of Ithaca, NY with Grammy-winning engineer Robby Hunter. It was released on December 3rd, 2013."
