Bio

Founded upon grandiose piano arrangements, a driving yet punctual rhythm section and sprawling guitar atmospheres The Venus In Furs conjure the spacey-ness of Pink Floyd and The Doors while rooted in the songwriting prowess of Radiohead and The Mars Volta that blurs the lines between music and visual art. The Venus in Furs has only been together for a mere four months however the vision has been in place for quite some time.

Blaine Elliot and Adam Kriske came together in 2004 over strikingly similar ideas in regards to music and art when they met through mutual friends. After two years and a multitude of talented musicians, Brent Hickman joined the group and augmented the bands sound with his ever-growing textural guitar work. With three members in place the band was only missing the very vital Cal Wooten. Steeped in musical theory and years of experience, Cal's intuitive playing solidified the group.

Over the next three months the band wrote and perfected material and hit the stage. Over a 100 local music fans were at the first show, a sign of good things to come. In late August the band entered Rex Trax Recording Studio and cut their current demo. Engineered by resident soundman "Paul" the tracks were then mixed by drummer Blaine Elliot. Currently the band is working on new, more progressive songs to be unveiled at upcoming performances. Enjoy.
