In 2015 it was announced that the band "OceanSpeak" would continue on in Nashville. What followed were a number of events that resulted in "OceanSpeak" being laid to rest. Vocalist Jeremy Claudio was determined to continue, and eventually he reunited with drummer Ricky Smith alongside new bandmate Cory Pierce.
Enter Tiger Drive. Tiger Drive, it’s important to note, is not a continuation of OceanSpeak. This is something entirely new. Their sound is not easy to define, yet it fits into the greater paradigm of the emerging alternative pop movement.
What does Tiger Drive mean? I’m not really sure either. I think that’s up to you to decide for yourself. What does matter is that Tiger Drive is poised to leap into greatness. A series of very specific events have led the group to this point, and Jeremy would likely tell you that none of this was an accident.
