Driving the freeway has just been transformed into a whole new experience with the release of "DRIVE 55" by Alex Johnson. This new musical offering is the first of its kind. "DRIVE 55" truly allows the listener to "get into the groove" of the driving experience: the tempo of this unique music is synchronized to the passing road lines at highway speeds.

This novel approach to rhythm combined with Alex's great music, creates an atmosphere of "Soothing Cruising". "DRIVE 55" presents a unique new sound in contemporary instrumentals featuring a blend of saxophone, violin, bass guitar and drums.
This music guarantees you'll feel the beat in the rhythm of the road ...even if you never leave home!
