Rock band whose records include August and Everything After (1993), one of the bestselling albums of 1994, and Recovering the Satellites (1996). Formed by vocalist Adam Durtiz and guitarist David Bryson in San Francisco in 1991, the band developed a strong local following and signed with Geffen Records. Their first album was produced by T. Bone Burnett and the single “Mr. Jones” (1993) became the first of several hit songs. Counting Crows' rich sound and Duritz's languid voice have drawn comparisons to classic rock groups such as Van Morrison and The Band.
