What to Expect
Classic rock sound and feel while delivering original songs and material. PT also has hand-picked covers spanning from the 70s to modern.
Passenger Trip's cohesive sound is rooted in the friendship of its five members. All but Colin McDevitt grew up in the small college town of Kent, Ohio. It was at that very same university that the other four members befriended Colin and four years later Passenger Trip was born.
Initially formed as "Maiden China", Passenger Trip started in an attic right outside downtown Kent, Ohio. Kevin Schreckengost and Colin McDevitt combined their individual talents to independently record their first single, Fresh Love. Recognizing their need for a drummer, Jared Fischer joined on followed by Ryan Parrish on bass and Craig Stratton on lead guitar.
In January of 2017 the group recorded their first studio effort entitled "Float" and debuted as an EP to go on to strong reviews. The band is currently working on their first full-length studio album set to be released in early 2018.
