At age fourteen, Dave Faber’s dad bought him a drum kit which Faber promised to practice on every day. “Coming from a family of seven kids, this was a huge deal,” he remembers, “seeing as how my dad could barely even afford to feed us.” Faber may not have kept his promise, but that’s because he put down the drum sticks to become front man and founding member of Faber Drive, one of Canada’s hottest young bands. After beating out more than 500 other artists from across Canada to take first place in a radio competition, Faber Drive started opening for notable acts such as Nickelback, Simple Plan and Hedley. With the release of their pop-punk infused debut album Seven Second Surgery, Faber Drive hit #1 on Much Music, saw three top-10 radio singles and was nominated for the Juno award for Best New Artist in 2008.
However, the Faber Drive that appears on its sophomore album can'T keEp A SecrEt is a band that has progressed beyond the Juno nominees of 2008. Where Seven Second Surgery laid the ground work for the Vancouver-based band’s career, can'T keEp A SecrEt now builds and evolves, deftly bringing bright colors, edgy tones, and more emotion into the fold and crossing the borders between Faber Drive’s punk rock roots into electro-pop mixed with epic balladry.
can'T keEp A SecrEt spans several genres of contemporary music, some familiar for Faber Drive, and others in uncharted territory. All and all it’s an album full of incidental pleasures, like the spasmodic platter of electronic effects and honey-dripping harmonies that gild the entire record, or new guitarist Jordan Pritchett’s searing, hit-the-floor guitar solo on Lucky Ones. And it’s definitely not a secret that there’s still a lot more in store for Faber Drive. Come to their gig at the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest and see what's in store for you.
