Superhype's journey began in Montgomery, Alabama in 1995 with two teenagers obsessed with old blues and the rock music of the 60's and 70's. Guitarist/singer Adam McIntyre and drummer Eric Stroud formed a three-piece band called Drivin South, named after a Jimi Hendrix tune and devoted to rocking up blues covers a la` Cream & Jimi Hendrix. The band wowed audiences in their hometown for two years before drifting apart in 1998.
Adam and Eric, the matrix of the band, kept working together as Adam's songwriting blossomed. Emerging from months of home studio recording at the end of 1998 with a new Rock/Pop sound and a new style, they relocated to Nashville. Here, they found a new bass player-Alex Stevens and recorded some of the new tunes with producer Ryan Gill. These songs made up Superhype's first EP, featuring the Zeppelin/Crowes rocker "Something New", the Byrds-y "Magnificent", a Beatles-esque ballad called "Take Me Back" and the Lenny Kravitz-washed "Come Inside". This EP gained them the clout they needed to break into Nashville's tightly guarded music scene. Since releasing the EP and playing more than a dozen shows in their first 3 months, new dynamic songs emerged. The new songs displayed both the band's growth and Adam's growth as a songwriter. Two of these songs, "Too Far Gone" and "Friend Or Lover", show amazing promise and will be recorded for a radio/fanclub release by or July or August.
