Remedy Drive is a rock and roll band with roots in Nebraska. Since forming the band in 1998, Remedy Drive has garnered 12 Top 20 singles and released 12 critically acclaimed recordings since its inception. The band’s songs have over 8 million streams online. Remedy Drive’s music has been heard on NBC, SpeedTV, and VH1, as well as Middle Tennessee Hyundai Dealers’ Music That Drives promotion. The band’s song “Daylight” was featured in the film “The Perfect Summer. “Hope” was used in a 2009 Winter Olympic commercial. “Stand Up” was used in the trailer for the Chasing Mavericks film starring Gerard Butler and on game days in the Green Bay Packer’s stadium.
For the last eight years, the band has been using music to shine a light on human trafficking by creating a trilogy of counter-trafficking-themed albums, the latest of which Imago Amor released in 2021. The band’s lead singer, David Zach, makes frequent trips with the counter-trafficking organization The Exodus Road, using covert gear to capture evidence of trafficking and partnering with authorities to dismantle the criminal networks responsible for this misery. These efforts have resulted in the freedom of over 1500 survivors of trafficking and the arrest of over 800 traffickers. The Remedy Drive fan base and community help fund these operations and have contributed over half of a million in donations and in-kind donations to combat modern-day slavery.
Remedy Drive produces all their merchandise (t-shirts, kimonos, jewelry, and accessories) by organizations that help restore and rehabilitate survivors of trafficking. The central theme to the band’s music is that ordinary human beings can step into extraordinary roles in the arena of freedom and justice. The music has roots in the words of the prophets and ancient scripture – proclaiming freedom to the captives, liberty to those imprisoned, and a restoration of dignity to the oppressed and the downtrodden.
