Drivin N Cryin

Formed in Atlanta in 1986, the hard-rocking, Southern roots music-steeped Drivin' n' Cryin' were never embraced on a national level, but have reigned supreme in the region during their tenure. Originally made up of singer/songwriter Kevn Kinney on guitar and vocals, Tim Nielsen on bass, and Paul Lenz on drums, the band's debut was the timeless hard rock/bluegrass fusion Scarred But Smarter (1986) on 688 Records, the label that grew out of the punk-era Atlanta club of the same name. The band followed with Whisper Tames the Lion in 1988 for Island, and replaced Lenz with Jeff Sullivan on drums. There were high hopes for Drivin' n' Cryin' at the time due to the success of R.E.M.; all things Southern were tipped to become the next big thing. But the band's uniquely Southern spin on rock was lost on the rest of the world.

Persevering with Mystery Road, with the addition of R.E.M. guitar roadie Buren Fowler on lead guitar, the band didn't alter its style all that much. For Fly Me Courageous (1990), the band finally took on the heavy metal mantle and ended up with a good hard rock record, with the odd folk track thrown in. The result was perhaps shocking and less than fashionable in the years when alternative music was just coming into its own. The greatest strength of Drivin' n' Cryin' was as a live band, as they toured tirelessly around the South, drawing an enthusiastic, college-age audience. A Drivin' n' Cryin' show in Atlanta had to be seen to be believed -- the sound of the crowd singing along would actually drown out Kinney's own unusually strong voice. That same year, Kinney recorded the beautiful acoustic folk LP MacDougal Blues for Island.

Smoke, the next album from Drivin' n' Cryin', was released by Island in 1993 and ultimately finished the band's liaison with the label. It was followed by another, even sparer solo album by Kinney, Down Out Law (Mammoth) in 1994. He accompanied his solo releases by touring with R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, who produced the first album, while he and the band also filled the gap between their fifth and sixth records performing acoustic dates throughout the South.

By the time the more gentle Wrapped in Sky, the band's Geffen debut in 1996, hit the shelves, Drivin' n' Cryin' were nearly forgotten -- lost in the void where many bands of their generation would find themselves in the wake of grunge. Kinney, Nielsen, and Sullivan held strong -- with the addition of Joey Huffman on keyboards for Wrapped in Sky. Fowler left the fold shortly thereafter, but the band continued to record, releasing the self-titled Drivin' N' Cryin' in 1997. A live set, The Essential Live Drivin' n' Cryin', showed up in 1999. Next up was a four-song EP, Detroit City Rock, in 2003, followed by another studio album, The Great American Bubble Factory, in 2009.

Embracing the immediacy and thematic possibilities of the EP format, the band formed its own label, New Records, and began issuing a series of five-song EPs, beginning with Songs from the Laundromat in 2012. A second EP, Songs About Cars, Space and the Ramones, also appeared in 2012. Early 2013 brought the third of four planned EPs Songs from the Psychedelic Time Clock, a collection of throwbacks to the early days of garage and 60's psyche. ~ Denise Sullivan & Steve Leggett, Rovi

Loved them since I heard them in high school in 1990. They've stayed true to their roots, not many bands have that accomplishme n t in this day of changing styles. Excellent in concert, go see them if you get a chance.
Perfect music for Saturday afternoon

When I was at Young Harris College in 1991, D N C played there. It was unbelievable ! Two members of the Ga Satellites were there with them. Hearing those guys singing "Straight To Hell" was epic!!!!
The Atlanta- Athens Georgia music scene in the early 80's to early 90's was nothing short of magical. Second only to Seattle....m a y b e . Happy to have experienced it.
Love dnc brings back memories of jammin loud . Ft. Stewart ga. In the nineties. Still awesome.
One word. Powerfuckinh o u s e ! ! !
.
Love these guys for all time. First show was my first date with my true love at Georgia Theater and I dropped like three or four beers which was something in its own right but then Kenny tore the place up as usual and I got the kiss. Been history ever since. We try to go to the Thanksgiving shows but now we go to Fl. Kenny is a regular good old guy. He is always chilling with the fans. Wish I could belt Straight to Hell right now with my girl. Can't forget the good times
If this spectacular band came out now , they would burn the f**king charts! The chattahouchi the honeysuckle blue
Dnc put out 5 great albums. How many bands can you say that about?

DnC played one night at Georgia Tech under an assumed name, The Hoochie Coochie Boys. They were unbelievable . We shared beers with the band members between songs. They were so laid back and cooler than any band I'd seen at that time. The entire crowd belted out Straight To Hell. Glad to see them every chance I can but nothing will beat that first concert.
A rock tidbit - saw them in PHX years ago at the Jar. A little known band, The Gin Blossoms opened for them but their drummer didn't show up (when they were a 4 piece - pre-Robin) and the DnC drummer sat in on the opening act! Classy. Also, other than the Flaming Lips, they were the loudest band I had ever seen at that venue!

The first time I saw these guys they blew me away. Athens 1986 40 watt opened up for Jason and the scorcers. Bought a CD and the ugliest grey dnc tshirt that I wore with pride. Probably seen them 50 times and if they came back to Savannah would go see them again.
found a cassette in the dump wore it out bought a cd after much searching nice to have them on pandora

Just saw Drivn again in Jekyll Island Ga. they are a great band that deserves so much more fame. Kevin Kenny walked around after the show and talked to everyone seems like such a down to earth guy. Go see this band buy their stuff

Best Bar Band... Ever! Some people don't know you can wear a CD out. Sure can. I'm on my 3rd copy of FMC.
see them live, anywhere you can, they will rock your face off!! yeah, cmon

Absolutely love this band, and this song!!
HaHa... guess I should have scrolled down first... Haven't heard that song in 15+ years. Still rules!
Is this the band that does the song Fly Me Courageous?
totally forgot these guys, love this song!
Holy crap! What did I stumble onto!? I'm a huge fan of classic hard rock and I saw the name of this band and started a new station. Next thing I know I'm listening to 2 hrs. of kick-arse rock and roll by bands I didn't know existed! Thanks again Pandora for the new band exposure!
Great band, good music.
However, the article above has a bunch of the years wrong.
GOOD STUFF TO LISTEN TO WHILE ENJOYING THE CONNELLS
DnC has been a favorite of mine for many years. Saw them live in P'cola, FL once. Simply put, rocked out the park! Thumbs up guys
been huge fan since 1986. Kevn Kinney is such an amazing songwriter, and such a great, humble person!
The lack of comments tell all. No one knows who the F this band is! Southern Rock is defined by the repetitive, brain-dead swill Leonard Sknyrd s**t out so many years ago. Yet the corporate suits still play it! F**k corporate radio! F**k corporate radio!!!!
A southern rock band that doesn't suck! Sad that the genre is defined by Skynrd...
I got blazed in my mom's station wagon and saw them in a record store in Harvard sq. They played acoustic instruments and bongos. It was wicked.
They played at Georgia Southern University homecoming week my first year of college. I'll never forget them. Nostalgic.
mvojnich
the sound of his voice is just so unique..it is a shame they never made it huge..but then again I like to think of them as something of my own...especi a l l y now living in the north where no one really knows of them!!
man Pandora just played the Connells for me and then followed it up with Drivin and Cryin .. its like the old ATL days all over again... I think DnC's biggest downfall was that they couldnt decide if they were rock or countryesque .. of course today they would have a great market and be rich ... instead they just get to be considered "pioneers"
burnettsemb
pandora needs to expand thier discography of this band. there is some fantastic stuff unavailable on "ultimate collection".
I'm lived around Atl all my life. In the late eighties and early nighties several good bands were around. Seemed to play for the music instead money. Several made to the big money thankfully.
They're cd stayind in my player for weeks a at time. Sound of there own that kinda gets in your head
hinez07

Great live band.....som e great days in Athens at the Uptown Lounge and the old Cotton Club in Atlanta
This band kicked a**! It was the 5th concert I saw! They rocked Spokane! This band will always be part of some of my favorite memories!
lived in NC 13 years god all ya heard was this song!!! f**kin hate it!! oh yea still do!!!
Man the summer of '92 was all about DnC. They had some good songs, and as far as I can tell rock out more then R.E.M. Just not so commercial.
Duly noted. Awkward Ronald Likes Let's Go Dancing an awful lot and will create a sissy music station and definitely stick it on there. So sissy KFOG-ish.
fauxgirl
they need more DnC to choose from. There's a lot more cool s**t than just this collection.
Mr. Taste likes Drivin N Cryin. Kinney is the real deal.
They have awful band naming skills, but great songwriting skills, go figger.
I forgot about "Fly Me Courageous". Its good stuff.

A truly underrated band. Fusing styles as diverse as bluegrass & metal, with an excellent result.
