The Gin Blossoms have undoubtedly left their mark on the Rock music map. The Grammy nominated band’s fusion of Melodic Rock, Folk and Country elements has paved the way for the modern Rock of today.

Fans around the world are very familiar with Gin Blossoms’ five-time Platinum breakthrough album New Miserable Experience, containing gems like “Until I Fall Away,” “Found Out About You,”  “Hey Jealousy” and “Allison Road.” Those hit tracks were followed up by Empire Records Platinum Soundtrack hit, “Til I Hear It From You,” and in 1996, by the singles “Follow you Down” and “As Long As It Matters,” which hit the radio in a big way, making their Congratulations I’m Sorry record another platinum success. Gin Blossoms hits have crossed over in five different formats, taking the airwaves by siege, and holding MTV hostage for a good portion of the 90s. The band continues to burn up the road performing over 120 tour dates per year.
