STRIVE is a Chicago based rock band which seeks to encourage lives of compassion and involvement in culture shaping activities. Members include Derick Thompson, Will Puth, Rich Kluckow and Joshua Brollier.
Singer and Pianist, Derick Thompson & bassist Rich Kluckow met the original drummer Chris Powers at Wheaton College and formed STRIVE in early 2001. About a year later, guitarist Will Puth joined the entourage. STRIVE performed their rock music in Chicago land clubs, schools and churches while recording multiple independent albums. By July 2003, the group toured Russia supporting a grass roots movement of AIDS awareness and prevention. International involvement in this and other issues lead to STRIVE founding their own non-profit organization in 2005.
They have been together for 7 years. Upon first listen, you will notice that STRIVE doesn't sound like anyone else around. You might be able to recognize their strong British and European influences, but its hard to identify their sound as anything but their own.
