About Better Than Ezra

Forming in 1988, Better Than Ezra was the musical brainchild of vocalist Kevin Griffin and Joel Rundell, who were joined by Tom Drummond and Cary Bonnecaze. With Griffin and Rundell on guitar, Drummond slapping the bass and Bonnecaze on percussions, this first iteration of Better Than Ezra would rock the local Louisiana music scene as all four members were pursuing academic studies at Louisiana State University. With early performances in and around the cultural capital of Baton Rouge, the band soon hit the recording studio and released self recorded demo Chimes Street, which laid the early foundation of the Better Than Ezra sound that would catch on in Louisiana like wildfire.

The band would be struck by tragedy as lead guitarist Joel Rundell committed suicide, leaving the band in limbo as they considered whether to move forward as a group of disband all together. The band decided to stick it out and hit the local tour circuit, eventually being picked up by Swell Records in 1993. Their mainstream debut would catch the eyes and ears of various larger labels, and the band soon signed on with Elektra Records and were propelled into the national spotlight.

The band soon was putting out a constant stream of albums, all of which would be commercially and critically successful as Better Than Ezra hits invaded the airways all across North America. The band continued their success through the 90s and into the 2000s, though they would again shift record labels and sign with Beyond Records by the early 2000s. At this point previous drummer Cary Bonnecaze had departed the band and been replaced by Travis McNabb, amongst compensation drama that made its way all the way to a Louisiana courtroom.

After more lineup changes and a long decade of consistent successful albums, the band's eight full length album strong discography speaks for itself as one of the most definitive discographies in alternative rock history. Now working with The End Records, the band continues to put out cutting edge music year after year as they retain their position as the crown princes of the alt rock music scene.


Previous Hits

The band's debut release Deluxe would drop in 1993, and would be an immediate success as it climbed to the #3 position on the US Heat chart and the #35 position on the Billboard 200. The album would receive a coveted platinum certification for sales within the United States, and an additional certification for gold from its loyal fanbase in Canada. The album spawned three mega hit singles which ingrained themselves into 90s alternative Americana, including "Good", "In The Blood", and "Rosealia".

2009 would be another year of Ezra as the band released Paper Empire on Megaforce Records. Under the masterful tutelage of producer Warren Huart, the album lit up Billboard as it hit the #62 and #7 positions on the Top 200 and US Indie charts, respectively. The album would be carried by the hit tracks "Summer Nights", "Absolutely Still" and "Just One Day", which received widespread radio play across North America.


Trivia

True fans already know this piece of trivia. Much like the Grateful Dead has deadheads, Better Than Ezra has an alias for its diehard followers: Ezralites.
