PHILLIPS & DRIVER

“Cover tunes are the order of the day on Togetherness, the remarkable collaboration between (Gretchen) Phillips & (David) Driver…They bring together Austin and New York City in a way that I’ve never heard before. There is an equal balance of torch and twang that is so refreshing, it is like hearing these songs, many of which will be recognizable to listeners, for the very first time.”
Gregg Shapiro, Bay Area Reporter June ’03


“When was the last time you heard a genre-bending duo that was actually worth listening to?…Phillips & Driver are the real deal.”
Steven M. Housman, The Bottom Line June ’03


“Both Austin-native Phillips and New York City resident Driver have pipes to spare, each being a near tone-perfect vocalist – Phillips leans more toward the chiming and angelic while Driver bends more towards chorale and broadcast…By not puritanically reproducing the original works on Togetherness, they have made these songs their own.”

Phillips & Driver offer elegant, often quietly subversive versions of song.”

“No matter how love is defined, from song to song, Togetherness is a joy to listen to.”
Greg Beets, The Austin Chronicle, March ’03


“Phillips and Driver’s brilliant 2003 album,Togetherness, melds their diverse musical backgrounds (she’s a rocker from Austin, and he’s a New York City crooner) on country-rock versions of songs by artists ranging from Leonard Cohen to Bad Company.”
