America

Origin: United States/United Kingdom

Genres: Folk/Country, Rock

Folk-rock trio America burst onto the scene in the early 1970s with their biggest hit, A Horse with No Name. Combining the songwriting talents of singers/guitarists Dan Peek, Gerry Beckley, and Dewey Bunnell-sons of U.S. Air Force officers stationed in England- the group released their eponymous debut LP in 1972. Over the next four years, America surfed on a steady wave of success, and most of their albums enjoyed the same chart success, thanks in part to the magic touch of occasional producer George Martin. With Peek leaving in 1976, America carried on as a duo, with a few solo projects along the way. Here & Now, their solid 2007 studio effort, was hailed as a renaissance of sorts for the pair. In 2010, America embarked on a major tour to mark their 40th anniversary.
