    Remedy Drive was the poster child for breakthrough rock acts. Lead singer David Zach and his brothers Daniel, Paul, and Phillip had emerged from Omaha, Nebraska onto the national stage; charting a major No. 1 radio hit for seven weeks (“All Along”), receiving several Dove Award nominations including New Artist Of The Year, and touring with Family Force 5, Mercy Me, and the David Crowder Band.  
     
    But success came after years of struggling to get there. And upon arrival, the big time was no friendlier to Remedy Drive than anyone else trying to balance work and family in the music business; it still demanded long stretches of time away from wives, children, and loved ones. In November 2010, after much discussion, David’s brothers told him they had each decided to leave the group in search of a more predictable lifestyle.
     
    “That was tough and I was devastated,” David admits, “but they gave me their blessing to keep Remedy Drive moving ahead. Rebuilding this thing again was daunting but the thought of doing anything else never crossed my mind.”
     
    So David sold his home in the Midwest, moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and started looking for new band members. He found Memphis-based drummer Timmy Jones on YouTube and was instantly magnetized by his playing and stage presence. From Chicago, guitarist Dave Mohr was an easy choice after an afternoon of guitar playing and a likeminded discussion about philosophy, theology, and literature. Florida-raised bass player Corey Horn accepted David’s invitation to join Remedy Drive after meeting him at a Switchfoot show.
     
    The new lineup released its invigorated re-introductory album, Resuscitate, produced by Pete Kipley (Kutless, Matthew West, Mark Schultz), in 2012. The album included the hit "Resuscitate Me", which climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Rock chart.

    In 2014, Remedy Drive took the independent route with their next album, Commodity, funding the album through a Kickstarter campaign. David explains, "We’ve released a concept album on freedom called Commodity. Freedom -- the cry from the depths of my heart and the theme of an entire album -- to be imagined through lyric, melody, and sonic landscape. We want to make a concept album on liberty, to shine a light on slavery, to protest oppression, and to empower rescue. We want to add to the soundtrack of the resistance."

    Remedy Drive also partnered with an abolitionist group called The Exodus Road. David volunteers as an undercover operative when the band is not on tour on missions to find and free slaves, specifically underage girls trapped in the red-light districts of Southeast Asia by human traffickers.
