The Driver Era is an exuberant pop/rock outfit featuring former R5 bandmates singer/actor Ross Lynch and his brother, multi-instrumentalist/producer Rocky Lynch. Officially formed in 2018, the Driver Era came together during the recording of R5’s New Addictions EP, which the Lynch brothers helped co-produce. Following the New Addictions tour, the brothers decided they wanted to continue as a duo with their own project, and brought R5 to a close. In 2018, they debuted the Driver Era with the single Preacher Man, which was included on their first official full-length.
