ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Capturing the essence of their previous summer tour, the 10-track collection of songs and poems reflects stories heard and told on the road. The album is a polished pop-rock production that preserves the organic spirit of the Good Asian Drivers’s live performances. A palatable balance of indie and mainstream, Drive Away Home, like the Good Asian Drivers themselves, cannot be defined by one thing; it addresses heavy social issues with catchy hooks, cutting lyrics, and bold stylistic choices. The record features the talents of Washington D.C.-based singer-songwriter Mara Levi on bass. Also contributing to the album is seasoned drummer Ashley Baier, who will be joining the Good Asian Drivers on tour in the summer of 2009.

Melissa Li's music, an irresistibly catchy blend of folk, rock, and pop, has been heralded for its honest lyrics and bold sound. A seasoned songwriter, Li's distinctive delivery is packed with charm and emotional nuances few of her contemporaries parallel. Melissa started her career performing in Boston at the tender age of 16. In 2007, she received the prestigious Jonathan Larson grant for her talent in music composition.

Kit Yan's spoken word tackles race and gender with candor, eloquence, and humor. Hailed by the press as "a slam force to be reckoned with," Yan's resolute delivery packs a mighty punch, leaving his audience completely transfixed. Wittily crafted and genuinely passionate, his pieces are rare treasures amongst a new generation of slam poets. Before the age of 21, he landed a coveted spot in the Lizard Lounge National Slam Team, competed in the Individual World Poetry Slam, and won the world's largest slam.

Ashley Baier is veteran drummer and percussionist who has over 15 years performance experience and a Masters of Music from Mannes College at the New School. Skilled in all styles of performance from classical to jazz, Baier is part of the experimental rock project Just Puppets, and formerly part of Changing Modes, a Brooklyn-based art rock band.

The Good Asian Drivers broke into the national spotlight in the summer of 2008 when they performed in over 30 states in 12 weeks. For more information on the band, booking, and tour dates, their website is http://www.goodasiandrivers.com.
