Blue October

Biography

Blue October isn’t just your average, everyday rock band from Texas. The group was formed in Houston in the late ‘90s by lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Justin Furstenfeld, his drummer brother Jeremy, multi-instrumentalist Ryan Delahoussaye, and later joined by guitarist/vocalist CB Hudson and bassist Matt Noveskey. The group’s epic live shows and exploration of subjects like mental depression, drug use, love, betrayal, forgiveness, and cathartic transcendence have helped them amass a strong, loyal following through five albums, three of which have been released by Universal Records. That brand of intensity is welded to wide screen sound that evokes an array of eclectic influences such as prog-rockers Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Flaming Lips, U2, and Coldplay, attracting a hardcore following who not only relate, but ardently sing along with the band’s songs.
