Canadian pop/rock band Manic Drive was first formed back in 2004 by brothers Michael Cavallo and Shawn Cavallo. The Cavallos- who began singing at the early ages of eight and nine- always knew music was in their future. "We loved music so much when we were little kids that we started writing, performing and even recording at the age of eight and nine," says Shawn Cavallo. "While my brother and I were growing up, our relationship with God and our music kind of grew together. So, we've always used music to communicate God's love to people."
After receiving interest from a record label, they released Reason for Motion in May 2005, which included the songs, "Luckiest," "Nebulous," and "Memories." Over the last several years, the band has released a variety of albums including, Reset and Rewind (2007), Blue (2009), Epic (2009), and VIP (2014). These albums brought a slew of songs to audiences including, "Halo," "Good Times," "Walls," and "VIP (feat. Manwell Reyes)."
Band members now include Michael and Shawn Cavallo and Anthony Moreino. The band aims to encourage listeners to challenge themselves in all aspects of their lives. "The main focus for Manic Drive from an artistic perspective is to challenge ourselves creatively pushing beyond our previous limitations, trying new ideas and ultimately landing on something that will be fun to experience live as well as on an iPod." Shawn says, "We hope every Manic Drive release will be refreshing to our fans as we continue to grow artistically as a band, and we definitely hope our lyrics resonate with people, challenging them to take a stand and impact the world around them."
