Hootie And The Blowfish is an American alternative band, which was founded at the University of South Carolina and played a mainstream version of blues rock.
The founding members were Darius Rucker, Dean Felber, Jim “Soni” Sonefeld and Mark Bryan. Their first album Cracked Rear View (1994) was an immediate success and has now reached 21x platinum status (double diamond status) in the US. This made it the best-selling album in 1995 and is still among the 20 most successful albums in the US charts. Included on the album were the four hits Hold My Hand, Let Her Cry, Just Want To Be With You and Time. In 1995, the band agreed with Bob Dylan out of court on the unauthorized use of his text to Only Want to Be With You. In 1996, the band won a Grammy as Best New Artist. In Europe, however, the band could not achieve comparable popularity.
In 1995, Hootie & The Blowfish released Hey Hey What Can I Do to Encomium, the tribute album for Led Zeppelin. Their cover version of the song I Go Blind, originally released as a soundtrack of the TV series Friends in 1995, was a surprise hit for everyone. What happened next was even more remarkable as this song was included neither on the album Cracked Rear View nor on the second album, Fairweather Johnson. Both songs, Hey Hey What Can I Do and I Go Blind were later released on the Rarity / B-Side Scattered, Smothered and Covered collection.
Even the second album could not build on the success of the debut, but it sold at least over four million copies. The following three albums were increasingly unsuccessful, and more hits were missing. In August 2008, the band announced that Darius Rucker wanted to focus on his solo career. The band will no longer record albums and only perform from time to time as part of their charity foundation. In fact, there have been occasional occasional performances, but not for the release of new material.
In 2019 Hootie & The Blowfish has announced thein new big tour all across the USA.
