WHO: Our Next Up Artist of the Week is Heffron Drive!
WHY: Heffron Drive was formed in Burbank, CA in 2008 by Kendall Schmidt and Dustin Belt. Both originally from Wichita, KS, the duo met on the street "Heffron Drive" where they quickly became friends and began making music together.
Shortly after creating the band, Kendall booked the Nickelodeon/Columbia Records television show "Big Time Rush". Dustin became the touring guitarist for the band, and they two spent nearly 5 years on the road with that band. Now on indefinite hiatus with BTR, Heffron Drive was revived and the two are in full force promoting it.
FUN FACT: Heffron Drive's backing band shall forever be known (to KIIS FM) as The Bitchin' Pigeons!
SOUNDS LIKE: R5 meets Jimmy Eat World!
