Sugar Ray Background
Sugar Ray first took shape in Orange County in 1992, touring around the L.A. and San Diego areas and quickly built up a strong fan following based on word of mouth. Initially coined as the Shrinky Dinx, the band was forced to change their name after Milton Bradley, who owns the rights to the toy Shrinky Dinks, said it was too similar. The band settled on the name Sugar Ray, taking their moniker from the infamous boxer. It was certainly unforgettable, and helped people remember them when they first heard their music. They dropped Lemonade and Brownies, their first effort, in 1995. Their debut was followed by their sophomore album, Floored. Considered their breakthrough album, Floored yielded "Fly," which garnered heavy airplay. In 1997, they were also highlighted in the film, Father's Day, which cast Robin Williams and Billy Crystal in starring roles.
Two years later, they issued 14:59, which yielded the monster hits "Every Morning" and "Someday." The latter rocketed to No. 7 in the U.S. The album also earned triple platinum certification. To promote the album, Sugar Ray kept a rigorous tour schedule, which included a performance at Woodstock 99. Post-14:59, Sugar Ray collaborated with The Alkaholiks to lend the single "Make Room" to the Rap Rock effort. Sugar Ray kicked off the new millennium with "Spinning Away" for The Beach movie soundtrack. The tune served as a remake of the original done by Brian Eno and John Cale. A year later, they issued their eponymous album, producing the catchy song, "When It's Over." The song scored the No. 13 spot in the U.S. In 2003, Sugar Ray dropped In the Pursuit of Leisure, which yielded "Is She Really Going Out With Him," a song first made famous by Joe Jackson. A greatest hits album followed in 2005, featuring new material: "Psychedelic Bee," "Shot of Laughter" and "Time After Time." The band went into somewhat of a hibernation after the arrival of their compilation album. They released Music for Cougars in 2009. Today, Sugar Ray can still be found crisscrossing the nation, taking audiences for a stroll down memory lane.
