The Counting Crows is an American rock band formed in 1991 when singer Adam Duritz and guitarist David Bryson from Berkeley, California Began playing together in the coffeehouses of San Francisco.

Since the Counting Crows thoroughly believe and focus on live performances, they toured extensively throughout 1993 and 1994 promoting their music. Their first single ‘Mr. Jones’ earned airtime on MTV and unexpectedly became a hit. Bringing immense interest and stardom to the band. The album, August and After became the fastest-selling album since Nirvana’s Never mind. In 1995, the Counting Crows performed in only two concerts, allowing Duritz time and mind frame to write a set of songs that released as part of their second album, Recovering the Satellites, in 1996. In the year 1999, the band released yet another album named This Desert Life. The album carried successful songs like ‘Hangin’ Around’ and ‘Color Blind’ which sky rocketed the sales of this album.
