Though only still in their 20's, Charleston, SC four piece A Fragile Tomorrow was formed in 2003 by Sean and Dominic Kelly (both of whom live with cerebral palsy) with their brother Brendan, in their parents' basement.  The band was named in honor of Sean and Dominic’s triplet brother who passed away some six years earlier; Shaun Rhoades joined in 2006. That same year, they released their debut album, Wishful Thinking. 

Early 2008 saw the release of the group’s second album Beautiful Noise, produced by Grammy® award-winner Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Patti Smith, among many others). In 2009, they recorded their third record Tripping Over Nothing, with singer-songwriter Danielle Howle producing and Amy Ray, songstress Susan Cowsill, and smart-pop legend Peter Holsapple contributing. Sean and Dominic also made an appearance on Indigo Girls’ live Staring Down the Brilliant Dream album as well as Amy Ray’s 2012 solo release, Lung of Love.

From late 2010 through early 2011, A Fragile Tomorrow joined Indigo Girls on tour, then later that year were invited to tour with The Bangles, the band’s West Coast debut. More high-profile gigs followed throughout 2012, as they shared bills with Antigone Rising, Garrison Starr, Drivin’ N Cryin’, and Matthew Sweet. One Massachusetts critic who caught them opening for Sweet proclaimed AFT as “everything that is right with music.”

In any great story, the setting is as telling as the characters, and the story of Finnegan Bell is no exception. 

Raised in South Carolina and now located on her coastline, Shane Williams and Warren Bazemore have roots tied deeply to the place they call home. Williams and Bazemore began writing and playing together while students at The University of South Carolina, and though life's road took unexpected turns, they have not stopped making music since. 

As the band Finnegan Bell, the duo continues to play over 100 shows a year, having shared the stage with the likes of Nickel Creek, Leigh Nash, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Jars of Clay, David Mead, Griffin House, Danielle Howle, as well as members of Hootie and the Blowfish and Allison Krauss and Union Station. 

Their new album, I Was Gone, features unforgettable melodies and engaging harmonies, with lyrics crafted as much for the everyman as the poet. I Was Gone comes together as the band's most celebrated work to date, establishing Finnegan Bell as two of the most seasoned songwriters and performers their beloved state has ever grown.
