QUOTES:
"This album is positive from start to finish. The music is upbeat and cheerful while also thought-provoking. There is so much to it that you don’t hear in today’s mainstream. The substance most pop artists today seem to lack can be found here. It is hard to find the kind of raw talent that Driver possesses. He keeps it simple. No effects, just a clean sounding voice. It is refreshing and rare."-Sue Hardee, Raleigh Music

"A better comparison might be Eric Hutchinson, Matt Nathanson or any of the other solid songwriter –sons, though Driver’s songwriting displays a more refined sensibility than either."
— Ryan Synder, Yes! Weekly Magazine

"Highlight tracks include, “Logged In”, “Young & Beautiful”, “Without Love Poster”, “Worshipped by the Energy”, “Gardens”, and “Sidelines.” As you can see my list of favorites is over half of the album’s tracks, need I say anything more? Purchase- ‘Warm Is Your Color!’"
— C W Ross, CWROSS

"Driver’s voice reminds me of Maroon 5’s lead singer Adam Levine, and is guaranteed to make you melt.— Sue Hardee, Raleighmusic.com

"Warm Is Your Color effectively puts the emphasis on his strengths as a lively vocalist with a knack for simple, yet engaging guitar melodies. "
— Ryan Synder, Yes! Weekly

"I love promoting good people who make great music and every once in a while I come across a CD that is so good that I have to share it with folks. Such is the case with Nick Driver's CD entitled "A Kinda Love This World Could Never Burn". Nick's CD is full of positive lyrics and good beats, this one is worth taking a listen - great vocals and harmonies. It will brighten any day. You'll be singing to this one in your car." -Diogenes, 919 Music Pick

"Since going solo with his original acoustic music, this young artist has attracted quite a bit of attention, including being selected as a finalist for the 2011 John Lennon International Songwriting Contest for his song Spare Me Some Change" -A Neck Of The Woods

"Now lauded for his Americana, singer/songwriter feel, Driver’s recorded two records (2010's Warm is Your Color and 2011's A Kind of Love This World Could Never Burn) and toured the country sharing his music. This NC native is steady mastering the hustle." -Carrboro Citizen
