GREAT MINDS

Great Minds is a folk pop rock band from Newport News, Virginia. The band consists of Jon Smeland (far left) and Micah Wood (far right). Jon and Micah went to high school together and have worked on music ever since their sophomore year. Great Minds have been in the studio working diligently on their sophomore album June. June is set to release this winter independently. Their second/new album is a big step for the band musically. They have been working to mature from their simple folk sound to something more advanced and heavy. The album will incorporate more drums and bass then their previous endeavor Every Now And Then which released summer 2011. The hope for June is to show a different side to the band and give the album a *Danger Mouse Prodcution* feel because, in an ideal world, that's who they would have asked to produce it.
