Dishwalla
Dishwalla
DISHWALLA. A platinum selling, award winning band with a career spanning nearly 2 decades and 5 albums.

In 1994 Dishwalla signed to A&M Records and immediately began their successful launch into the music scene with a rendition of It's Going to Take Some Time that was chosen as a single for The Carpenters tribute album, If I Were a Carpenter, a live performance on the Jon Stewart Show, and MTV coverage.

When A&M released Dishwalla's debut album, Pet Your Friends, it lit up the airwaves in 1996 with their edgy smash-hit single Counting Blue Cars. With a gritty attitude and edgy musicianship reminiscent of past musical legends, Dishwalla's Alt-Rock sound was enough for music fans to crown Counting Blue Cars one of the most requested songs of that year. The track earned them a Billboard Award for "Best Rock Song" for 1996 as well as two ASCAP Awards for "Rock Track of the Year" in both 1996 and 1997, driving Pet Your Friends to sell more than a million copies worldwide.

Standing amongst Rock royalty, the band shared the stage with the likes of No Doubt, Sheryl Crow, Cheap Trick, Blind Melon, Lenny Kravitz, Gin Blossoms, and the Goo Goo Dolls, including a signature performance at the infamous Woodstock in 1998. Later that year, the band released its follow-up album, And You Think You Know What Life's About, and recorded a fresh version of Policy of Truth for Depeche Mode's tribute disc, For the Masses. Their edgy, yet melodic, signature sound became part of the soundtracks of a generation being featured in hit movies such as Empire Records, Blast from the Past, The Avengers, and in 1999, Stir of Echoes and American Pie. With heavy touring and new releases, the band charted on Billboard with the release of Opaline (2002), the acclaimed live album, Live… Greetings From The Flow State (2003), and their self-titled Dishwalla in 2005. Their songs continue to be included in movies like The Banger Sisters and in TV shows such as Smallville, The OC, and NCIS, Charmed (spotlighted as musical guests) and most recently in 2012, Dishwalla was written into the plot of How I Met Your Mother on CBS.

Over the span of their 2 decade-long career, the band has survived the usual drama of personnel and record label changes. Dishwalla's music helped define the sound of a generation. Their music is timeless, and Counting Blue Cars' recurrent airplay on Triple A and Hot A.C. radio are a testament to this. Touted by fans and industry alike as one of the best live bands to come out of the 90′s, Dishwalla is back, and now they have a story to tell.
Brian Vander Ark- frontman of Verve Pipe
Brian Vander Ark- frontman of Verve Pipe
Massive success and its aftermath have sent many artists into oblivion, forever trying to recapture the moment when the world first bowed at their feet. That moment came for Brian Vander Ark when, as the lead singer and principal songwriter for The Verve Pipe, he sold more than 3 million albums worldwide and produced a string of hit singles, including the #1 song 'The Freshmen.'
More than just the frontman, Vander Ark was its literal and figurative voice, providing the creative spark and writ- ing songs that gave the band its devoted following. Although the songs were cast in the style of the era, they re- main singular and special. His gift is one of tremendous storytelling clarity expressed through melodies and rhythms that are unique, riveting, intensely personal and entirely gripping.
Rather than blindly attempt to reclaim a throne that was fleeting at best, the Michigan native struck out on his own, sold all his possessions, hit the road and released his acclaimed debut solo CD, Resurrection, in 2005. This inspired collection of original songs recalls an era when artists were not afraid to express their heart’s direction and soul's design. Vander Ark continued that commitment with the release of Angel, Put Your Face On and his latest solo CD, Brian Vander Ark. Both earnest and reflective, this music once again takes an intimate look at life while exploring themes of family, love and loss.
His journey has resulted in a lyrical, engrossing collection of songs wrought from an experience that many have dreamed of but few have faced. On the way, Brian rediscovered his love for performing and now revels in a free- dom that few can claim as he travels the road playing his songs and connecting with audiences.
