The device in your pocket and the radio in your dash don't have soul .
Music brings them to life. Music is what moves you. So let's strip away everything standing between you and the music. We've all been there: The Car, The Drive and The Music - it’s an escape. Let's reconnect to the amazing feeling you get when you simply lose yourself in a moving song or when a old album can bring you back to a special moment or time in your life.
The inspiration for the Pioneer Poet Project came about from being lifetime fans of music, cars, wrenching and being pure car audio enthusiasts. For a long time we have tried to convey our passion behind what we do, why we do it and now, finally, it is here before you in raw, spoken word.
