Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grass roots band to national attention. Vertical Horizon released three albums independently (There and Back Again, Running on Ice, and Live Stages) and toured extensively before signing with RCA Records in 1998. Their breakout album, Everything You Want, released in 1999, went on to sell more than two million copies. The title track, “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts, and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. Their follow-up album, Go, was released in 2003 and solidified the band as a no-nonsense pop rock entity. After a brief hiatus, the band released a new album, Burning the Days, in 2009, followed by Echoes From the Underground in 2013. In February 2018, Vertical Horizon released their latest album, The Lost Mile.
