OVRFWRD is a four piece American band that plays instrumental progressive rock.
Formed in Minneapolis, MN in 2012 by drummer Richard Davenport and guitarist Mark Ilaug. Bassist Kyle Lund and keyboardist Chris Malmgren came in shortly after to complete the union.
With diverse musical backgrounds including influences from 70's Prog to Metal, RnB, Jazz and Classical, their music is an adventurous listening experience with many paths of sonic textures and soundscapes to explore.
OVRFWRD has performed and/or toured with King's X, Stick Men (featuring Pat Mastelotto and Tony Levin of King Crimson), and John 5, as well as making an appearance at ProgtoberFest, Prog Day , NJ Proghouse, and ProgStock Virtual Series.
Together the members of OVRFWRD have a common goal; to create, perform and push forward their unique brand of powerful and engaging instrumental music.
