About

Toad The Wet Sprocket

Toad The Wet Sprocket – the trio of founding members Glen Phillips, Todd Nichols, and Dean Dinning – are still making new music and touring with the same spirit and independence that started it all, over three decades ago. This year marks a new milestone in their journey with the 30th anniversary of the 1994 platinum-selling album Dulcinea.

After the success of fear (1991) the band re-teamed with producer Gavin MacKillop, to create a new body of work that would become their album Dulcinea, and sequestered themselves in a residential studio in Marin County, CA. Inspired by the sound they had developed from their recent touring, the band tracked the record mostly live in a huge room lit by hundreds of candles. With minimal overdubs, the album comes across as an honest document of a stunning batch of songs, some of which had the benefit of having been already played on the road.

Dulcinea arrived in 1994 and was certified platinum followed by a tour in which the band played over 80 headlining shows, with openers as diverse as Milla Jovovich and Hootie & the Blowfish in their first national tours. The first single “Fall Down” (with a video directed by Samuel Bayer of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” fame) spent 6 weeks at number one on the Billboard Modern Rock chart. “Something’s Always Wrong” was featured in the movie “fear”, and had a groundbreaking music video that put the band on the Home Shopping Network selling themselves to the lowest bidder. A highlight of the Dulcinea era was playing the NOW rally in Washington, DC in April of 1995, a performance that put the band in front of a million people and was nationally broadcast.

Crediting their success to the unwavering support of their fans, Toad the Wet Sprocket are celebrating Dulcinea throughout the year on tour – including a co-headline summer tour with the Gin Blossoms, a fall tour with Barenaked Ladies and throughout the year additional headline dates in select markets. Limited edition commemorative Dulcinea merchandise will be available at the band’s online store and on all tour dates, as well as a limited quantity of Dulcinea on vinyl that will be a repressing of the original.

Throughout their career, Toad the Wet Sprocket has remained committed to creating music that is both meaningful and accessible. Their songs are filled with introspective lyrics, melodic guitars, and vocal harmonies that have resonated with fans for decades.T hroughout their career, Toad the Wet Sprocket has remained humble and grateful for the loyal support of their incredible fans. This is the fuel that inspires the band to continue creating music and performing live to this day.

About harris

Hailing from central Virginia, harris is a decorated guitarist, producer and singer-songwriter who wears his heart on his sleeve. Having toured the country garnering his own audience over many years, he has amassed a loyal fanbase that comes from the blues, folk, rock and soul demographic.

At twenty-two, he moved to Los Angeles to continue touring with his band comprised of Julius Rodriguez (Charlie Hunter, Kurt Elling, Kendrick Lamar), Leo Varella (Cordae, Doja Cat), Paul “Papabear” Johnson (Taeyang, Doja Cat, Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne) and Brian Richburg Jr. (Cautious Clay, Christian Scott, Braxton Cook, Joss Stone).
