Rose Hill Drive has quickly found a dedicated following amongst jam-band fans, and it's easy to see why the group's brand of straight-up rock 'n' roll appeals to that crowd. But while bands like Phish and Moe pride themselves on long, improvised musical passages, Rose Hill Drive specializes in focused blasts of classic rock. They’re disciples of Hendrix, the Allman Brothers, Zeppelin, and all the other pioneers of guitar-based, drum-pounding, vocal-screeching rock ‘n’ roll. And while their music truly flies in a live setting, Rose Hill Drive’s self-titled debut is a solid introduction to the band’s mix of electrified rock and acoustic psychedelia.

It’s hard to pick favorites with this power trio, but guitarist Daniel Sproul deserves some extra recognition for his endless barrage of fiery-fingered riffs. His soloing is impressive, his guitar tones perfect, his execution flawless. If anything can steal the spotlight from vocalist Jake Sproul’s wailing tenor, it’s his brother’s boundless skill with the guitar. The boys don’t jockey for the spotlight, though, and Rose Hill Drive ultimately comes off as all ideal debuts should: strong, centered, and boding well for future drives. - Andrew Leahey
