Bio

Left here with nothing but dreams of what could have been. I see endless drifts of clouds that mirror our own souls. Lost and lonely they drift and wait for nothing but a long fall and land on the empty face of life.
But I can hear the lonely melodies that follow our path. They call for the vessels that will carry them to the ends of their journey.
Far from the deaf ears that mock them, far from the voices that would drown them out, far from the words that would Betray them, far from the hoarding masses of nay-sawyers who would Harbor ill will.
And above all Far From Gone!

Aaron and Greg have known each other since childhood and have worked together musically for much of that time. They recruited James to join them in the band, which at the time was known as "Sound Stone".
James called in Jeff, a good friend and former band mate from "At-Water", to see if he could help put the voice to the rhythms. It didn't take long for these four guys to gel into a driving rhythmic force.
Well, things have worked out pretty well and "Far From Gone" was born! The music you hear is a mixture of all four members digging down into their hearts and souls to deliver one voice.
We hope you enjoy it,
Far From Gone

Jeff’s General Bio: What's up? I am Jeff the lead singer from Far From Gone. I live in Lake Park, Fla. I am really loving' the sound we are coming up with; basically, the words you hear from these songs are the events in my life. (As you can tell never a dull moment.) But the mood is definitely driven by James, Aaron and Greg. The music they put out there guides me to write the lyrics. Influences: Farside, Split Lip, Elliot, Boy Sets Fire, Tool, Live, Swervedriver, Red Roses for a Blue Lady (especially my brother), and of coarse, SLAYER. Former Bands: At-water, Hero, Flat Earth, and Roosevelt (as a drummer)
