Fur Eel is releasing their new EP "Find Your Way" on March 5, 2013. The EP was recorded in its entirety on Remembrance Day, with the goal in mind of capturing the live vibe of the band and avoiding any editing in today's world of over-tweaking with Pro Tools. The EP also marks the bands first foray into recording with an outside producer by bringing veteran producer David J Taylor. (Since forming in 2011 they have self-produced and released 3 full length CD's)
The first single off of the EP is "Chameleon Girl".

Keep your eye on Fur Eel as they have plans to release several new EP's, singles and a full length in 2013. These guys can't stop, constantly hustling.
Like a musical gin & tonic Fur Eel blends soul/funk/rock & roll with a touch of pop & R&B to create a unique sound that has been compared to "Maroon 5 partying with The Rolling Stones".

Forming in 2010, Fur Eel - Justin Sheppard (Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter), Thomas St. Onge (Guitarist/Co-Writer), Travis Reshaur (Bassist) and James Belle (Drummer) have evolved to transcend genres and generations of fans in a way that is garnering attention from music lovers and industry professionals alike.
