Biography

SingleMinded's name and music stand forever opposed. While their name means similarity, their sound screams a uniqueness that hints at its influences but leaves you scratching your head when the song stops. Their signature blend of hard music mixed with melodic vocals and harmonies have set the stage for a new era in music. Conceived in 2002 by original members and best friends Preston Palmer on lead vocals, Ben Ghormley on lead guitar and vocals and Justin king on drums. Using the bassist by committee theory, the group made their mark on the scene in a matter of months getting openers and headliners all over Arkansas. Matt Kennett joined on bass in late 2002 and the group was solidified. SM has opened for major label artists such as Seether, Shinedown and Blue October, Future Leaders of the World, Burden Brothers and Vast. Though still extremely young, this Little Rock based rock band is no stranger to hard work. Touring the South supporting their new Ep, their resume also includes showcasing at the world famous South By South West Music Festival and touring overseas in Asia in the summer of 04. They derive their signature sound of deep, thought provoking, melodic rock from influences as diverse as Tool, The Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Dream Theater and Tori Amos.
