Through writing, refining, and recording their debut full-length album, “Another One Gained,” Katy Guillen & The Drive delved into the catharsis of a bittersweet moment in time. Recorded with Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Heartless Bastards) at Invisible Creature Studio in Los Angeles, the 10-track effort was met with high praise upon its 2022 release. Accompanied by drummer Stephanie Williams’ melodically exacting rhythms, Guillen’s fiery guitar playing aligns with her lyrics to meet at the crossroads of suffering and silver linings.

As lauded by Under The Radar Magazine, the duo evokes a “simple and timeless indie rock sound carried by Guillen’s chugging guitar and Williams’ driving drums, yet they also show off effortless instrumental chemistry, locking into an easygoing groove that gives both members a chance to shine.”
