Counting Crows has enchanted listeners worldwide for more than two decades with its intensely soulful and intricate take on timeless rock ‘n’ roll. Exploding onto the music scene in 1993 with the multi-platinum breakout album, “August and Everything After,” the band has gone on to release seven studio albums, selling more than 20 million records worldwide, and is revered as one of the world’s most preeminent live touring rock bands. In 2004, Counting Crows recorded the chart-topping “Accidently in Love” for the animated motion picture “Shrek 2.” The instant success of the track earned the Counting Crows an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song at the 2005 Academy Awards, a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song, and a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. Over the last 30 years, the masterful songwriting from frontman Adam Duritz put the band at No. 8 on Billboard Magazine’s 2021 Greatest Of All Time: Adult Alternative 25th Anniversary Chart. The group released its newest record, “Butter Miracle,” featuring the hit single “Elevator Boots,” in April 2021.
Rock ‘n’ roll is often hard to define, or even to find, in these fractured musical times. But to paraphrase an old saying, you know it when you hear it. And you always hear it with The Wallflowers. For the past 30 years, led by founding singer, songwriter and guitarist Jakob Dylan, The Wallflowers has stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands – dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits such as 1996’s “Bringing Down the Horse,” as well as more recent and exploratory fare such as 2012’s “Glad All Over.” The band released “Exit Wounds” in July 2021, marking its first new material in nine years. And while the wait was long, the much-anticipated record features the band’s signature sound – lean, potent and eminently entrancing. True to its title, the studio album as an ode to people – individual and collective – who have, to put it mildly, been through some stuff. For Dylan, “Exit Wounds” is the next chapter in a career devoted to chasing – and capturing – rock ‘n’ roll magic. “I came up in an era of great rock ‘n’ roll bands making great music, and it’s the way I always imagined I would do it one day,” he says. “That’s always been my vision with The Wallflowers – to be a great rock ‘n’ roll band. And I've worked on it for 30 years now and I still have a lot to say. It’s something I started a long time ago, and it’s far from finished.”
