Only 8 months after releasing their debut cd in November of 2009, Fools For Rowan had already toured from coast to coast...opening for rock heavyweights Halestorm, Sick Puppies, Trapt and Adelitas Way...and performed a huge 4th of July concert in front of thousands at the world's largest music festival: Milwaukee's Summerfest. Their music video for the song "Dead" had already been featured on Fuse TV and Havoc TV, reaching more than 100 million homes in the U.S. Their music had been played on more than 200 radio stations nationwide, including many large Top 40 stations. As Big Dog at KISR said, "if you're not playing Fools For Rowan, your ears must be DEAD!"
Fools For Rowan hales from the same hometown as Kings Of Leon and Paramore...Nashville, TN. The band is sometimes compared to those two worldwide fan favorites...with the bended guitar chords reminiscent of KOL...and sensational female lead singer, ala Paramore...yet FFR carries its own torch. Led by spectacular singer Erin Mullins and female lead guitarist Rachel Brandsness...their "Twisted. Tied Up. Tangled." cd is receiving rave reviews worldwide...but it's their hyper energetic live show that is winning over fans and music industry leaders.
Fools For Rowan recently wrapped up their first nationwide tour that took them to Seattle, Dallas, Portland, San Francisco, Nashville, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, New York City, New Orleans, Austin, Louisville, Miami, San Antonio and many more cities...with several sold out shows along the way. They're currently gearing up for a summer tour that will once again have them ping-ponging all over the U.S. They're also working on a follow-up to their acclaimed freshman project.
Fools For Rowan is lead singer Erin Mullins who grew up in South Dakota and Arkansas...lead guitarist Rachel Brandsness from Oregon...drummer Jordan Cullen from Kentucky...and rhythm guitarist Ryan Nanney and bass guitarist Aaron Elliott, both from Tennessee.
