Katy Guillen & The Drive
with Allergen, and ELOUR
Through the course of writing, refining and recording their debut full-length album, “Another One Gained,” Katy Guillen & The Drive delved into the catharsis of a bittersweet moment in time. Recorded with Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Heartless Bastards) at Invisible Creature Studio in Los Angeles, the 10-track effort was met with high praise upon its 2022 release. Accompanied by drummer Stephanie Williams’ melodically exacting rhythms, Guillen’s emotive guitar playing aligns with her lyrics to meet at the crossroads of suffering and silver linings. As lauded by Under The Radar Magazine, the duo evokes a “simple and timeless indie rock sound carried by Guillen’s chugging guitar and Williams’ driving drums, yet they also show off effortless instrumental chemistry, locking into an easygoing groove that gives both members a chance to shine.”
Allergen is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, MN fronted by Shannon Maroney. They mix crunchy riffs, powerful vocals, and emotional lyrics, and as described by local music blog Ear Coffee, “feels like a private conversation being broadcast to the world.”
Emotions erupt in ELOUR’ s punk-edged Femme Rock, resulting in catharsis and empowerment. ELOUR features the alluring songs, vocals, and stage presence of classically trained Elizabeth Ghandour. ELOUR (pronounced “allure”) is what Elizabeth Ghandour categorizes as Femm Rock. Elizabeth’s direct lyrics, diverse background, and classically trained voice, combined with Ned Barclay’s soaring electric guitar, Joe Scarpellino’s tasty bass, and Ryan Vee’s creative drumming, yields a sound that’s raucous and rebellious, and yet very stylish.
