Biography

If you ask any member of the Dirt Drifters how it all came to be, they would probably tell you Divine Intervention. It started with five roads that hit some detours and dead ends but eventually re-routed into one. It involves so much more than music, and so much more than songs. Heartache, life changes, career changes, tears, blood, and a drive that endures. Five guys, one dream, and a little bit of luck . . . The Dirt Drifters:

Brothers Matt and Ryan Fleener grew up in Oklahoma listening to their dad’s band rehearsing in the garage and traveling on the weekends as part of the family dream. The sons of a mechanic and a schoolteacher, they cling to their blue-collar roots, and that upbringing can be heard in their songwriting. After hitting a lot walls in Nashville chasing the dream as a duo and songwriters, they met up with the rest of the Drifters somewhere around the 5-year mark.

Jersey rocker, Jeff Middleton traveled south to Nashville after hearing Garth Brooks one night and swore to himself that he was going to be a successful songwriter and musician. Walking away from business jobs with big money, he rolled the dice with his guitar and threw a seven one night when the idea of the band was born. Listen close and you can hear Jersey in the Dirt Drifters. `

Bass Player Ron Gomez cut his teeth in the LA music scene, and later traveled to New York searching for home, not long after he drifted into Nashville refusing to give up on dreams. A product of the 80’s rock scene, he brings his own unique vibe and style and to the band. He was introduced to the other fellas one night over a bathroom-remodeling job and a six-pack of beer.

Louisiana’s own Nick Diamond is the son of a preacher man and one hell of a drummer. Brought up in the church playing multiple instruments, he eventually settled on a stool behind a kick and snare. Choosing a path of his own he loaded up and headed to Nashville, three years later he met the members of The Dirt Drifters at – where else - church.

The Dirt Drifters now travel all around the States making fans and kickin’ up dust. Their never say die lifestyle got them a record deal with Warner Bros. Nashville, and the newest band to hit country music is screaming down the road with a sound unlike anything else in Nashville.
