Emotionally stirring yet composed, The Fierce Urgency of Now uses music to tell tales of joy and sorrow. Lifting its name from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic I Have A Dream, The Fierce Urgency of Now dissects its surroundings through story-like songs. The duo balances calm, acoustic melodies with post-hardcore sensibilities to craft music that is equally progressive and diverse.
The Fierce Urgency, for short, consists of guitarist and lead singer Corey Sherman and guitarist/singer Dan Quaresma. Growing up in Rhode Island, the duo played together in a number of outfits before finally forming The Fierce Urgency of Now while attending college in Boston. In 2008, Sherman and Quaresma decided that they wanted to take their music in a new direction, abandoning the pop-punk sound they grew up with in favor of a more mature sound.
The Fierce Urgency is currently hard at work recording its debut EP, featuring songs that it has been recording at Paper Robot Studios. In addition to recording, the duo has been busy working the live circuit, having already performed with many of New England’s finest up-and-comers, such as Biscuits & Gravy, The Down and Outs, Full Void and The Wrecking Coast.
