Officially formed in 1992 and after replacing a departed band member, Everclear (Art, Craig and Greg) pieced together to
perform grunge and in-your-face punk rock; following their many influences and norms of the time, such as Nirvana and the
Counting Crows. After a relocation from Los Angeles to San Francisco CA, this three-piece melodic grunge band was noticed by
a major label at a local concert who were eventually out-bid by Capitol Records for Everclear's services. Soon after, they
released Sparkle and Fade; an album which set many standards for the new-age punk and grudge artists of the time. And as
the popular saying goes, the rest is history.
