Hailing from all over the country but converging in Providence, Boston, and New York City, The Furies are a band apart. The all female group combines lyrical finesse with instrumental prowess, mixing ferocious hooks and lush harmonies that draw from wide influences; Jeff Buckley, Regina Spektor and Led Zeppelin, to name a few. Not just a rock band; but a collaborative of songwriters, composers, and multi-instrumentalists, The Furies are carving out a name all their own and much like their namesake, they mean business. Lead singer Lee Moretti started the project after having come off the road as Third Eye Blind's multi-instrumentalist and background vocalist, and the last few years have been a time of quickening growth for the unique group.
Having raised over $10,000 through crowdfunding campaigns, the band toured the Northeast, the south, and the midwest and had the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of The Ataris, Joan Baez, The Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Hidden Hospitals, Big Scary, and many others. In addition, The Furies independently released their debut EP and music video. The band chose to work closely with notable veterans of the production world, recording with Dave Minehan (The Replacements, The Neighborhoods), owner of Wooly Mammoth Sound, and mixing with Sean Beresford (Third Eye Blind, Vanessa Carlton).
The Furies EP "Omens," was released in November of 2015 to glowing reviews across the board and continues to receive praise, including ranking in the top five of The Telegram's "Best New England Albums of 2015." The EP is a collection of vignettes reflecting on courage, loss, and discovering light in the darkest places. Their upcoming full-length record is slated for release in 2017.
"On a night when everything on stage was good, it took a tremendous push of energy to finish out on a high note, and the Furies didn't disappoint. The all-female band puts forward flat-out rock 'n' roll that both feels contemporary and blisters with hooks and propulsion.. a powerhouse finish."
