If Rose Hill Drive were a sports team back east, the big question on all of the talk radio stations today would be “Who the fuck is this guy?”
It was announced yesterday, after more than a year of hiatus, (with only one show in that time) that Rose Hill Drive is returning. But the local three piece that garnered so much attention opening for bands such as Wilco, The Black Crowes, The Who, Van Halen and Aerosmith, to name a few, is no longer a three piece.
During their hiatus, vocalist Jake Sproul put down his bass and picked up a guitar. Now, he and brother Daniel will both be toting six-strings, with their old friend Nate Barnes on drums. That leaves a hole on the low end, and it was announced yesterday that the position is being filled by bassist Jimmy Stofer.
Stofer has previously played with The Fray (as a touring bassist), Hello Kavita and Dualistics.
The band will unveil its new line up, and some brand new material next week in Boulder at the Sundown Saloon. While not normally a music venue, the Sundowner has hosted Rose Hill Drive before, for special “secret” shows in the past.
