Furious Jones: From Central Idaho to Nashville to Boise 

June 3, Neurolux

If you're in a husband-and-wife music duo living in Cascade and not making the sound you really want, what do you do? If you're Tom and Sarah Smith, you have Carl Hamilton (he apprenticed under John Bolin) build you a guitar, change your name from Blacksmith to Furious Jones and move to Nashville, Tenn.

Tom is a classical guitar player, but when Sarah--originally from England--picked up drums about six years ago, they wanted to rock. Tom uses a pick on his new black-limba wood axe--called the Classical Smith--which allows him to get volume and sound without wearing through the body of his guitar. And the name change to Furious Jones not only stands out but better reflects the duo's attitude and Led Zeppelin-meets-Townes Van Zandt rock.

"We're both shy, but we're in our element on stage," Sarah said laughing. "We're reclusive exhibitionists."
