According to superstition, counting crows can help predict the future, but Adam Duritz and guitar player Dave Bryson did not expect instant fame when they formed a musical duo in 1991. A songwriter and vocalist like Morrissey, Duritz wore his hair in dreadlocks and suffered from depression and dissociative disorder. He poured his emotions into song lyrics, and the friends played gigs around their town in Berkeley, CA. Taking their name from a divination rhyme, the band picked up bassist Matt Malley, keyboard player Charlie Gillingham, and drummer Steve Bowman before signing a recording deal with Geffen Records.
Even after filling in for Van Morrison at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, they were still unknowns. However, T-Bone Burnett produced the Counting Crows debut album, August and Everything After, in 1993, and the song "Mr. Jones" propelled the group's popularity. With lyrics referring to Bob Dylan, "Mr. Jones" rose to number two on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart and helped their debut album sell over seven million copies. In addition, the songs "Round Here" and "Rain King" reached the Top 10. Along with artists like Jack Johnson and The Goo Goo Dolls, the Crows enhanced the alternative rock music scene, and Ben Mize joined the group in 1994 as the new lead drummer.
During the 1990's, groups like Counting Crows and Third Eye Blind set new trends in alternative music. Their next album, Recovering the Satellites, included Dan Vickrey on the guitar and lyrics to tracks like "A Long December" explored the reality of fame. Selling over two million copies, Satellites became the band's first number one album. Next, Counting Crows released a live album, Across a Wire, in 1998, which reached platinum status. Their third studio album, This Desert Life, was certified gold with hits like "Mrs. Potter's Lullaby" and "Hanginaround." Gaining David Immergluck in 1999, the band ranked with established artists like The Black Crows.
In between Counting Crows concerts, the alternative music band released Hard Candy, with Sheryl Crow, Ryan Adams, and Vanessa Williams as backing vocalists. During this time period, Jim Bogios and Millard Powers joined the band as Mize and Malley quit. Venturing into the world of Hollywood, they created "Accidentally in Love" for the Shrek 2 soundtrack and performed the song at the Academy Awards. In 2008, the band released Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings and in 2012 they released their sixth studio album, Underwater Sunshine. In 2014, Counting Crows released their seventh studio album, Somewhere Under Wonderland.
