Agora Forte is a progressive rock band formed in 2010 in Minneapolis, MN. The band’s lineup is comprised of musicians with the shared interest of composing, producing and performing original songs, often challenging and unconventional.
The band’s sound comes from a wide range of styles developed since the 1960’s. Inspired by timeless acts like Pink Floyd, Rush and King Crimson, Agora Forte builds on a classic rock foundation to create a modern sound that appeals to fans of Dream Theater, Muse, and Tool.
Since its formation, Agora Forte has set to work writing and producing a unique style of rock music. The album Monuments (2011) showcased their strength for versatility and composition. Their sophomore album, Contagious (2014), confirms Agora Forte's place in the progressive arena, yet captures an array of audiences through this exploration of rock sub-genres. In preparation for live performances, Agora Forte is seeking the right musicians to bring their unique mixture of sounds and attitudes to the stage. The band is enjoying the exciting challenges as they strive to be not just a progressive rock band, but an ambassador for an often overlooked, mysterious and misunderstood genre of music.
