Big Time Rush heartthrob, Kendall Schmidt, has just released his debut single titled “Parallel” from his band, Heffron Drive, which is available now on iTunes. The song was written by Schmidt and producer, Toby Gad, and was released through Schmidt’s new label, TOLbooth Records.
The single was mixed by Scott Jacoby and our very own, Emily Lazar, at Eusonia Studios. The pair has worked together as a mixing team most recently on select tracks from Vampire Weekend’s Grammy-winning Modern Vampires of the City and Hamilton Leithauser’s (of The Walkmen) debut album, BlackHours, among others. The track was also mastered by Emily Lazar, Chief Mastering Engineer at The Lodge, and assisted by Rich Morales.
Heffron Drive is comprised of Kendall Schmidt and guitarist Dustin Belt, and together they are currently working on a debut album, which is set for release this summer. Earlier this month, the duo were well received as they performed some of their new music for their adoring fans during the South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. Plans are set to tour throughout North America this summer, as well as Europe and Asia in the fall.
