America

America

America é uma banda americana de folk rock muito popular no início e meio dos anos 1970 e ficou conhecida por seus sucessos como "A Horse With No Name" e "Sister Golden Hair". Embora não fosse muito aceita pelos críticos, a banda teve excepcional sucesso comercial na venda de seus dois singles e álbuns. Apesar de cantores consagrados como James Taylor e Rod Stewart fazerem parte da Warner Brothers Records, a America foi que mais vendeu discos nos anos 70. Gerry Beckley, Dan Peek e Dewey Bunnel eram três americanos muito jovens, que na época em que foram descobertos (por Jerry Lordan), em 1970, viviam em Londres. Seu som acústico, causou surpresa e fascínio. O America teve dois grandes hits internacionais seguidos, 'A Horse With No Name' e 'I Need You', ambos tirados de America, seu primeiro álbum, de 1971. A música do America, então, era uma versão refinada (não melhor, porém) do folk anglo-americano de Crosby, Stills & Nash. Beckley, Peek e Bunnel tocavam e cantavam imitando (talvez não intencionalmente) Neil Young. Até meados dos anos 70, pelo menos, America foi um nome sólido, com álbuns acima da média e hits de médio impacto, como 'Tin Man' e 'Sister Golden Hair'. No Final dos anos 90, o America, com a mesma formação, ainda estava ativo, vivendo de suas antigas glórias.
Formação original:
Gerry Beckley (1970-presente) – vocal, teclados, guitarras, baixo, harmônica
Dewey Bunnell (1970-presente) – vocal, guitarras
Dan Peek (1970-1977) – vocal, guitarras, baixo, teclados, harmônica
