Behind the success of their breakthrough 1994 single “Mr. Jones,” Counting Crows rapidly became one of the most popular bands in the world with their roots-driven approach to alt-rock that differentiated them from other world conquering bands like Nirvana and Green Day. The Bay Area band’s debut album, August and Everything After, went on to sell over 6 million copies and remains a classic of the era, establishing the band’s knack for creating rich ballads with contagious hooks. Led by singer Adam Duritz, the band maintained their initial momentum with chart-topping albums like Recovering the Satellites and Hard Candy, in addition to hit singles like “American Girls” and the Academy Award-nominated “Accidentally in Love.” Over the past two decades, Counting Crows have become renowned for their passionate and energetic live performances, establishing themselves as one of the world’s preeminent live touring bands. In 2021, the band was ranked #8 on Billboards’ “Greatest of All Time: Adult Alternative Artists” list and released the EP “Butter Miracle: Suite One” following a seven year hiatus.
