Cover Drive was formed in a basement in Barbados.  Cover Drive is a band on a mission to bring the sunshine and sounds of their native Barbados to the world. The young quartet has already ignited the UK charts with three top 10 hits in 2012, inclusive of their infectious smash ‘Twilight’, which shot straight to No. 1 upon release, nabbed a 2012 Soul Train Music Award nomination for Best Caribbean Performance, and had their collaboration with Far East Movement, ‘Turn Up The Love’, selected as a part of President Obama 2013 inaugural playlist.  Not too shabby for a band who has been only been on the international music scene for a year and a half.  Cover Drive has opened for Rihanna and Kelley Clarkson.  Cover Drive is now based in the Washington DC area and is currently touring at colleges, universities and other venues.
