Hailing from the country music hotbed state of West Virginia, the four
members of Novaflow had two choices: submit to the line dance, or
break new ground by inventing their own brand of rock 'n' roll.
You're reading this because they chose the latter.

With inventive riffs, dark, deep melodies, and attitude to spare,
Novaflow is one of indie rock's most innovative new bands, which makes
it hard to believe they started out with no musical experience.

"We started out as four best friends who had no musical background
whatsoever," said drummer Matt Walker. "We went to a rock concert, and
we were just blown away. We started a band on the drive home, even
before we had instruments."

What they didn't know was that Ben Keenan had been secretly taking
guitar lessons. So with his, and the other three members' overflowing
ambition, Keenan became a bassist, law students Jeff Stevens and Matt
Walker became lead singer and drummer, respectively, and Brian Patton
picked up lead guitar.

As they started writing songs, the four new musicians realized that
their group would need a name. While brainstorming, Keenan suggested
the word "Novaflow," which Stevens interpreted to mean a new flow, or
new sound. With their lead singer's blessing, four friends from West
Virginia became Novaflow.

Having solidified knowledge of their instruments, a handful of songs,
and a band name suggestive of their inventive sound, Novaflow took to
the road. They gigged around the West Virginia/Ohio/Kentucky
tri-state region, bringing their intense, frantic rock 'n' roll to
eager audiences.

With clear influences ranging from the pop of The Beatles, to the
darkness of The Doors, to the raw rock of The Who, Novaflow began to
garner fans from as far away as California and Europe, even though
they had yet to venture far from their hometown.

Closer to home, the band was making audiences stand up and take
notice. During a gig in Atlanta, after being told they would have to
cut their set short, Stevens did what any sensible rock star would do
– he made a lasting impression on the crowd by leaping into its center
and smashing his guitar to bits. The group was kindly asked to never
appear at the venue again, which is fine with them – there are bigger
clubs and massive stadiums anxiously waiting to be packed.

Novaflow is a band that will be on your stereo and in your ears for
years to come.

"We want to be the biggest band in the world," said Stevens. "And
then when we get that big, we want to start being compared to the
bands that influenced us. If we shoot for anything less than that,
we're wasting our time."
