Jonny Udell, an eccentric yet interesting human, hails from Philadelphia. A life-long drummer, his resume includes The Knives, Warner Drive, Bullets and Octane and currently The Mercury Riots. He’s a cat man. His favorite activities include picnicking outdoors, exercising and long walks on the beach, tho he hates the sand. He’s also not much for picnicking and his exercise is usually walking to the store for coffee.

Ryan Harris, a funny introverted little fella, grew up outside of Pittsburgh. His start in music came playing guitar for Cherry Monroe. The band would go on to sign with Universal Records and release an album. The single from that record reached #85 on the Billboard Top 100. Process that, they blew passed #86, but fell short of #84. Breaking out of the 80’s will separate the men from the boys. Unlike his cohort, Ryan enjoys picnics, and walks, and exercise. F#@* the sand!

Ryan Jonny

Long story short-ish, Ryan Harris and Jonny Udell have one thing in common. They are both musicians from Pennsylvania who met in Los Angeles, California in 2011. Jonny called Ryan, Ryan joined Warner Drive, and they’ve been touring ever since. Besides that, they generally bicker.

So back to the podcast. It’s like going to get coffee with your friends!  Only,  they’re their friends and it’s not your coffee shop, but you can still listen! I mean, heck send a DM, they’ll probably have you on the podcast…
