The Christian rock group Chasing Furies is a family affair. The band is made up of two sisters, vocalist and songwriter Sarah Meeker and vocalist Rachel, and their older brother, Joshua, who writes, sings, and plays guitar. Their father was a music minister, so all three siblings performed together long before they thought of a serious musical career. A little gig in a local coffeehouse in 1996 was the group's first appearance outside of family or church. Things went well enough that the threesome felt secure in spreading their wings and giving the music world a try.
