About the Artist
Counting Crows exploded onto the music scene in 1993 with their multi-platinum breakout album August and Everything After, and for three decades their intensely soulful and intricate take on timeless rock and roll has kept them one of the world’s pre-eminent live touring rock bands. Alongside milestones of seven studio albums and more than 20 million records sold worldwide, Counting Crows topped the charts and notched Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award nominations with “Accidentally in Love,” written for the animated motion picture Shrek 2. The masterful songwriting from frontman Adam Duritz put the band at number eight on Billboard’s 2021 “Greatest Of All Time: Adult Alternative 25th Anniversary Chart.” The band released their newest record, Butter Miracle, featuring hit single “Elevator Boots” in April 2021.
As punk rock proliferated radio airwaves, Dashboard Confessional cemented their role at the vanguard of an entire music scene. Facing familiar aches with tenderness and precision, singer-songwriter Chris Carrabba rocketed the band into mainstream focus, solidifying their place as one of the biggest alternative bands of the 2000s. All The Truth That I Can Tell, the band’s ninth studio album, is both a remarkable renewal and fortunate step forward. Carrabba found himself at a distinct crossroads as the last decade came to an end. The songs came, and though the project might’ve easily come to a screeching halt following a near-fatal motorcycle accident in the summer of 2020, the album stands among Carrabba’s finest—a potent musical look at himself through a rediscovered keyhole, less like reading someone’s diary and more like reading their eyes.
Inspired by pioneering pop-punk acts of the early 2000s, Chicago quartet Glory Days formed in 2016 with vocalist/guitarist James Pickering, bassist/vocalist Vince Gannon, drummer Jared Tousey, and guitarist CJ Jarmuth. Energetic live performances and personalities to match make Glory Days as memorable as their namesake. Their debut EP The Road’s We’ve Traveled was released in the summer of 2016, shortly after the group’s first sets together, and several more singles have since joined their catalogue.
