Formed in Los Angeles in 1989 by singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan, The Wallflowers have won two GRAMMY® Awards and earned a string of Gold and Platinum albums since their eponymous debut album in 1992.

The Wallflowers released Bringing Down the Horse in 1996, which featured the hit songs “One Headlight,” “6th Avenue Heartache,” “3 Marlenas” and “The Difference.” “One Headlight” received two GRAMMY® Awards (“Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” and “Best Rock Song”) in 1998 and is also listed at No. 58 in Rolling Stone‘s list of the “100 Greatest Pop Songs.” The Wallflowers went on to release an additional three albums before going on hiatus in 2005.  Dylan then launched a solo career and released 2008’s Seeing Things and Women + Country in 2012. Two years later, the Wallflowers reunited with their sixth studio album, Glad All Over.

Jakob Dylan starred in Echo In the Canyon, one of 2019’s most successful theatrical documentaries.
