Bio

They have taken their inspiration from every musical genre possible. From Hip Hop to Rock and even Ska, the Furious Minds appeal to anyone who enjoys music. Now as confident and collected as possible, you should get ready to ‘Sing Along With the…Furious Minds’.
Let’s rewind to 2000. FM was started in a garage by three life-long friends: Ross Fernandez, George Klemme, and Ryan ‘Woody’ Woodcock. Ross and George had played in a ska band together and Woody had been producing hip hop beats and rapping. They started to record in Woody’s bedroom at his mom’s house. ‘We had to record vocals in Woody’s closet’ says George ‘it was pretty ghetto back in those days, we just hoped that he did his laundry’.
After releasing two albums; the self-titled ‘Furious Minds’(2001) and ‘Imagin8 My-Ology’(2003), FM released a split E.P. with the rock band Exposure, titled ‘Hi-5’s & Handshakes’ in 2005. The album was embraced by fans of both genres and took the FM’s status to a new height in the northern California music scene. Featuring hit songs like ‘Crushed’ and ‘Haircutt’, FM was getting college radio play and appearances, rocking packed shows, featured on movie soundtracks, and even distributed their album digitally through popular facets such as Tower Records, Best Buy and Itunes.
After ‘Hi-5’s & Handshakes’ was released, FM teamed up with other local musicians to form a live hip hop band and a sound all their own. Recruiting all-star musicians such as Dimitri Katsoff and Becky Phillips; the group gained talent, energy and new found inspiration.
‘I haven’t heard anything like them’ says Tom Gaffey (operator of the historic Phoenix Theater in Petaluma) ‘they have worked hard to get to this point and I have had the fortunate experience of seeing it every step of the way…’
Gearing up for the release of a new album, touring, recording a music video and DVD- even doing an ‘unplugged’ album, FM is opening up ears and eyes everywhere they go. Are you ready?

The new album from the Furious Minds entitled ‘Sing Along With the…Furious Minds’ features the new single ‘Dancefloor’ and is set for release in the summer of 2006.
