Members: Ben Lemieux, Jordan Hillman, Spencer Hillman, Rich Paquet
After only year of being a band, Connecticut-based Brookline Drive is already building a considerable buzz, and selling out headlining shows across New England as one of the best up and coming pop/rock bands around. Originally formed as an acoustic project by Ben Lemieux (Vocals) and Rich Paquet (Drums/Vocals/Acoustic Guitar), the duo quickly started turning and heads and grew into a full band as they added brothers Spencer and Jordan Hillman (Guitar/Vocals and Bass/Vocals/Keyboards) to the lineup.
Brookline Drive may be new to the music scene, but they are far from inexperienced. Their members have played with or done stints in bands such as The Best Week Ever (PureVolume #2 Unsigned Artist of 2010), We Shot The Moon (The Militia Group/Afternoon Records) and Sparks Will Fly (Sold over 8,000 CDs independently touring nationally with the Vans Warped Tour).
The band has an explosive lineup, featuring four talented vocalists whose vocal interplay and harmonies are unlike anything out there today. Drawing influences from all over the musical spectrum, the four talented Brookline Drive multi-instrumentalists have created a unique, catchy sound that makes for an incredibly exciting live show.
With their first full band release dropping on May 5th, the members of Brookline Drive are ready to hit the road in 2012 and prove themselves not only as talented musicians but as one of the hardest working bands around.
