|A cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, Cello Fury's original music combines the emotive and symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats to create a cinematic, progressive rock sound. A rarity in the music world, Cello Fury appeals to a diverse audience throughout the US and abroad, performing in venues ranging from concert halls to rock clubs. Continually developing their own unique style of cello rock music, cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations. The band's collective experiences have allowed them to perform on radio and television, in rock clubs, concert halls, and music festivals (including SXSW Music Festival in 2013), throughout the United States, performing for audiences as large as 67,000 throughout 23 states and abroad. The band's sophomore album of original music, "Symphony of Shadows", will be released in May 2013. Cello Fury proudly uses Thomastik-Infeld Strings.
Past notable shows and awards include entertaining a crowd of 60,000 during the half time show at Heinz Field for the Pittsburgh Steelers/Baltimore Ravens football game in December of 2009, receiving rave reviews from perhaps their most eclectic audience to date, and performing three sold-out shows at Pittsburgh's Byham Theater on New Year's Eve 2011. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette chose Cello Fury as "Most Fun Band" in a theater production in 2012. Cello Fury was also featured on the cover of the Pittsburgh City Paper's "City Guide" in July 2010, and was chosen as one of the "Artists to Watch" in a February 2011 publication.
Cello Fury has collaborated with many other musicians and artists across genres. The band has backed local and national artists such as B. E. Taylor, Tift Merritt, Bill Deasy, and Boca Chica, and has appeared on soundtracks for indie films and albums.
