Save the Fire, Formally known as The Pickup, are an alternative rock group based out of Houston, Texas. Members Oliver Gomez (Vox/Guitar) and Hugo Rivera (Drums) played in the now defunct Latin Hip Hop Rock Group , La O , and wanted a heavier, yet melodic sound to their approach on songwriting. Oliver Gomez was introduced to Joe Louis Gutierrez (Lead Guitarist) and long time friend Thomas Grove (Bass) to form the 4 piece. Save The Fire - means, save the passion, save the love, and save the spark, that solidifies societies direction in life. Our job as artists is to influence the world and our community through music and through our example.
