Biography Jonesboro, AR—Born in the Arkansas hills and with a deep-rooted appreciation for blues-tinged Southern rock as well as radio-ready album rock, five-piece rock band Further Down has arrived. With the release of the band's third full-length album, 7 Years Hard Luck (August 21, 2007), it's clear that Further Down is on a mission to bring rock to its roots and back again to the present.

Further Down features rock royalty in their bloodlines (the two guitarists are cousins of Tommy Shaw of Styx and Jim Dandy Mangrum of BOA), and the band delivers songwriting hooks and plays their instruments with precision like a group that's been together for twenty years. But they are all in their mid-twenties, allowing the potential for great things.

While Further Down is influenced by the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Led Zeppelin, and Black Crowes, they cultivated their Southern Rock roots a bit more by recording 7 Years Hard Luck at Ardent Studios in Memphis, which has tracked the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Led Zeppelin as well as modern rockers 3 Doors Down and REM. That, as well as the production of Pete Matthews (Evanescence, North Mississippi All Stars, Paul Simon), gives Further Down a leg up on classic rock sound-alikes. There is an album-oriented rock approach that feeds off Further Down's roots and lets them blossom like an Arkansas mountain range.

Radio stations such as Clear Channel's KISS 101.9 and Z 100.5 in Jonesboro, as well as Z95.5 in Poplar Bluff, MO; The Max 93.1 in Batesville, AR; and Rock 103 in Memphis have all jumped on board, giving Further Down the kind of regional push needed to branch out into other markets in the South and Midwest. In addition, the album is being nationally distributed by Select-O-Hits (Memphis) and the Band's indie label, WoodShed Records.

And along with the powerful studio release, Further Down has refined an airtight live show in markets such as Little Rock, St. Louis, Memphis and Nashville with plans to branch out more in 2008. They have shared the stage with the likes of Live, Flyleaf, Ingram Hill, Warrant, Poison, Our Lady Peace and more.
