Overdrive Orchestra

with The Legal Immigrants

Progressive-stoner-rock-jammers, Overdrive Orchestra is an orchestration of sound, soul and energy influenced by the wide range of talent they surround themselves with. Founded by Michigan-natives Chris Cranick (guitar) and Adam Bogues (bass), OO learned quickly that artists of all backgrounds have something to contribute to their own sound. With the addition of Shaun Sova (guitar) and Cameron Hill (percussion) in 2016, and James Blevins (synth) in 2018, Overdrive is back in the studio recording their third album to be released in 2019. The band previously released two independent EPs– 407 (2012) and Heading East (2013). In addition to their recordings, you can catch OO rocking out local venues in Detroit, Grand Rapids and surrounding areas.

When listening to Overdrive Orchestra, you will never hear the same sound twice. Their sound and vibe has been described as gritty, natural, and hypnotic, but you need to hear it for yourself to truly understand. The lyrical themes touch upon peace, love, spirituality, and enlightenment while also expressing communal frustrations with politics, taboos, and the human condition. The common theme throughout Overdrive’s career has been collaboration, and the band aims to feature at least one local artist during each set. If you’re an artist and you like their sound, reach out. You’ll fit in.

The Legal Immigrants are four battered souls banded together in Grand Rapids, MI. Their genre-phobic style has something for everyone, and everything for some.
