the DIVIDED mind was formed in the late Spring Of 2012 as North Carolina native Christian Martin returned from a stint in Ohio, and met guitarist Phil Poteat upon returning.. Both Christian and Phil have had many years of experience writing, performing, and recording and have performed with the likes of Australia's Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame's THE CHURCH, California's THE OFFSPRING, THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSS TONES, BEN FOLDS FIVE, and MANY others!.. They have also most recently recorded with North Carolina native MITCH EASTER of LET's ACTIVE and R.E.M. fame at the Fidelatorium!!!.....VATTEL CHERRY, also acomplished in is own right, joined in july of 2016!...Showing quite a diverse range of musical styles and influences to be sure!.. Always aiming to construct something new, intense, and NEVER BORING, the DIVIDED mind does just that: a willingness to keep its listeners on their toes!!!... Going from one end of the musical spectrum to the next, sometimes within the restraints of the same song!!!... ALWAYS!.. UNPREDICTABLE!... ALWAYS THOUGHT PROVOKING!... AND ALWAYS!... INTENSE, THE divided MIND marks the way for crossing the old, and the new for a totally amazing experience!.. WE WELCOME YOU TO THE FOLD!!!!!! ALWAYS....
...And to those who have also served: MITCH!, RANDY!, ROB!, Daniel, Lance, Brian, Thad, "The Girls", and the many amazingly wonderful others in session!.. THANK YOU ALL!...
