Fork in the Road formed in 2003 out of Logan, Iowa, a small town on the outskirts of the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area. The band’s name was derived from the geographic location between two highways where they actually practice and formed the band officially. Since their formation, Fork in the Road has entertained thousands of fans in the Midwest pursuing a career in music.
Their musical characteristics have stemmed from many styles. Fork In The Road adheres to their stylistic roots of music they’ve grown up listening to. This drives a very diverse, interesting, and exciting experience both live and on album.
Their grassroots following is a product of honest, hard-working musicianship and high quality equipment. Charity events have allowed Fork In The Road to help raise thousands of dollars for regional communities.
Fork In The Road released their self-titled debut album on New Year’s Eve in 2006, containing twelve original songs, which was an instant success among fans. The long awaited sophomore album “Cornography” followed in July of 2008 to equal success.
Their growing popularity and steadfast motivation has led to recent exposure on Omaha TV and radio shows including 89.7 The River's "Planet O," P.S. Blues, "The Jam Band Extravaganza," and "Spicoli's Morning Fiasco”; Z-92's "Homegrown," and "The Todd and Tyler Show." They were also featured as WB 15 KXVO Omaha’s “Band of the Week.”
With precise timing and spirited groove, drummer Jake Bauermeister empowers bassist Ryan Michael to punctuate Fork in the Road’s rhythm section with his natural feel and confidence of the fretboard. Riding the rhythm section’s wave is the modern and vintage guitar techniques and harmony vocals by Dan Allen. These attributes pave the way for the powerful and soulful vocals of lead singer and rhythm guitarist Andy Makey.
