"Alternative Rock that will haunt you long after the music ends. Songs with elaborate arragements and emotional lyrics. Five Dollar Friend will be your new favorite band." -Tessa Moll "The Daily Texan"
Five Dollar Friend finished production on their freshman LP entitled XOXORx (Kisses, Hugs, and Prescription Drugs) in 2006. With selected tracks produced by Matt Novesky of Universal Record's Blue October, the April, 2006 release has met with widespread audience and critical approval.
With its genesis in the coffee shops and live mic nights of central Texas, then nurtured and tested in the heart of the Austin music scene, Five Dollar Friend brings alternative rock back to the main stage. Combining the moving lyrics and soft chords of founder, song writer and lead singer Jacob Trevino with the blues inspired styling of bassist David Wechsler, the graceful melodies of backing vocalist/ pianist Xochitl Salinas, the precision drumming of new arrival Steve Pridgen, and driving guitar licks courtesy of Matt Bell, Five Dollar Friend has made a name for itself in the live music venues of central Texas.
Armed with poignant songs, an avid following and legendary live shows, Five Dollar Friend brings honesty and simplicity back to the world of alternative music. With a repertoire of hook laden songs that maintain a sincerity that is hard to find in so much of today's music, the audiences of central Texas and beyond have eagerly embraced this hearty taste of mature alternative rock music they so hungered for.
Check out Five Dollar Friend for yourself. If you want to experience a live show as well, then get your ass down to Texas, or let your favorite venue know that a tour date should include a stop in your town soon.
