    Almost universally known as lead singer of Big Time Rush, America's most well-known boy band and Nickelodeon's hit television series, fewer are aware, however, of Kendall Schmidt's plans for a music career following his performance as Kendall Knight on the show.

    There will be life after the boy band!

    With music, acting, dancing, and producing in his veins, Kendall is laying the foundation for a unique career transition. Kendall's been fortunate to meet many talented artists during his already successful career who are now encouraging him to set out on his own. Having the support of the music community will be a great boon for this global star.

    Kendall is also debuting his new group called Heffron Drive -- named after the street on which Kendall lived after moving to Los Angeles, California from his birthplace of Wichita, Kansas.

    A couple years ago, Kendall released a number of Heffron Drive songs on Myspace wherefrom tens of thousands began streaming the uploaded tunes. The Internet was soon buzzing about Heffron Drive, but shortly thereafter the Big Time Rush opportunity came along.

    Kendall joined up, but has always kept Heffron Drive in the back of his mind – writing new material when time permits.

    That being said, Kendall is thrilled to announce that he is returning to his German roots during an exclusive and intimate European tour confirmed for May. And although U.S. fans will have to wait to see Heffron Drive live, they need not worry; Kendall will be keeping his roughly 1.3 million Twitter followers up to date as he travels around Europe.

    But don't stress – this doesn't mean the end of BTR. He is just planning ahead.

    Are you excited to check out Heffron Drive?
