Derek Price has been rocking Kentucky’s indie rock scene since the late nineties. Most notably, he founded Stellar Kin during the early days of Bad Apple Records. Musicians and scene supporters like him are a dying breed, in musical influence, work ethic, and overall positive force for other local musicians. Sempervivi perfectly encapsulates his raw energy and earnest lyricism. After two years of solo acoustic dates and two EPs, Rob Grove (drums) and Jonathan Grayson (bass) joined to fully realize Derek’s original vision to grow the project into a band and steer it in a more aggressive punk rock direction.
