History[edit]

Their lead vocalist, Jennifer Turner, was playing as a guitarist on the Tigerlily tour with Natalie Merchant, when Turner formed Furslide together with Jason Lader and Adam MacDougall in early 1997. Furslide was the first band on Nellee Hooper's new label Meanwhile... when they were signed in 1998. They released their first album, Adventure, in fall 1998 and played a couple of shows subsequently in the US, the UK and across Europe and opened for Lenny Kravitz on October 8, 1998, in Detroit.They were the support act for Kula Shaker, Alanis Morissette and Ben Folds). In 1999, they band dissolved, supposedly because of disappointing record sales.
