Biography of Vertical Horizon

Vertical Horizon

The acoustic jam band Vertical Horizon was formed in 1991 by Georgetown University undergrads Matt Scannell and Keith Kane; after graduation the duo relocated to Boston, and in 1992 self-released their debut LP There and Back Again. Non-stop touring followed, and soon the group was opening for bands like the Allman Brothers, Better Than Ezra and the Samples; they also appeared on the Aware II compilation alongside the likes of Hootie and the Blowfish, the Verve Pipe and Edwin McCain. In 1995 Vertical Horizon issued their sophomore effort Running on Ice, which featured the Dave Matthews Band's Carter Beauford on drums; a year later bassist Sean Hurley and drummer Ed Toth were added to the lineup, and in early 1997 they issued Live Stages. Upon signing to RCA, in early 1999 Vertical Horizon reissued its three previous LPs; their proper major-label debut, Everything You Want, followed later that year.
