Since emerging in 1994, the six-member alternative powerhouse, Wilco, has established themselves as one of the most highly-regarded live acts in North America. Their unique take on the genre, heavily influenced by country music, has earned them quite a massive following. Meanwhile, their exemplary work and impressive commercial success have earned them a Grammy Award. Indie, this ' 90s-born outfit, has steadily evolved with the times, and they’re now the leading purveyors in eclectic indie rock.
During the ‘90s, the band achieved some moderate success with their first few records. Their 1996 effort, Being There, made its way to number 73 on the Billboard 200. While the band has yet to break out outside the U.S., they slowly gained a niche following in some European countries. This was evident when their third effort Summerteeth came out in 1999. By 2001, the band has finally achieved their much-deserved commercial breakthrough. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot entered the Billboard 200 at number 13 and the charts in seven other countries. Led by singles “War of War” and “Heavy Metal Drummer,” the album became one of the band’s career-defining efforts and was the first to be certified Gold in the U.S.
After their stellar breakthrough, Wilco went on a Top 10 winning streak with their subsequent efforts. Their 2004 album, A Ghost is Born, peaked at number 8 on the Billboard 200 and also entered the charts in 12 other countries. The effort-featured hit single “I’m a Wheel” later won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album. A Ghost is Born sold over 500,000 copies in the U.S., earning the band its second gold certification.
Wilco’s three-decade career has produced 12 critically-acclaimed studio albums, a highly-regarded live album, six EPs, and five collaboration albums. The six-member group led by original members Jeff Tweedy and John Strait are also prolific live performers. The band continuously tours every year across the U.S. and beyond.
