Ben

Guitarist

Ben’s interest in music started when he was only 3 years old. After hearing a classical piece for the first time, he said to his mom, “I want to play violin!!!”. But after some years, he began playing classical piano instead. He did that for a couple of years, but because of some family issues, he didn’t touch an instrument nor played music for a long time.

When he turned 19 he began to listen to a lot of rock legends like Guns n Roses, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Queen.
By this day, Queen is still his all-time favorite band.
But because of all these big guitar legends, he was listening to he decided to pick up an instrument again, this time the guitar.
He has been playing guitar ever since, and the rest is history.

Claus

Drummer

At a young age, Claus discovered bands like Metallica, Slayer, and Pantera. He wanted to be like them! So he decided to become a Musician. He started to try to learn the guitar but did not found it interesting. Then he discovered the drums and found it easy and started to jam along to the tunes of his heroes. In many years, he practices to the trash metal tunes he knew best. And ended up in a Metal-band, with some up childhood friends. Played a few gigs with it, and thought it was what he wanted to be… A musician!

Kristian

Lead singer

Kris has always been passionate about music.
He started out really early, playing on his dad’s drumkit in their basement(where several of Kris bands has been created).
Later on, he picked up an acoustic guitar, which soon was changed out by an Electric, and when he discovered bands like Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, and Led Zeppelin, he knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life.
Kris really never thought about being a singer, but when Junkyard Drive started out, they needed one. He gave it a go and has been doing it since.
Kris is living for playing live shows, and is always ready to throw on a concert!

Sjus

Bassist

Sjus started on the violin in 3rd grade, and since then, the musical adventures have taken a few turns! Having a hard time learning guitar, he settled on bass as it only had 4 strings, they were a little bigger and easier to work with.
He joined Junkyard Drive as a temporary bassist in 2019 and, within half a year, joined full time as the newest member.
With influences from Baroness, Dead Kennedys, Rosemary Clooney, and Debussy, Sjus is unable to limit himself. The favorite genre is “good music” and the favorite band is “something I still need to hear”.
