The Verve Pipe Tickets - You're on the Verve With This Michigan Band!Lansing, Michigan, had something going majorly when a few guys from the capitol came together -- with the names of frontman Brian Vander Ark, bass guitarist Brad Vander Ark, drummer Donny Brown, and guitarist Brian Stout. In 1992, they formed the Verve Pipe, signing with RCA Records in 1995 to start off their remarkable music career.
The Verve Pipe Tickets - The Music of the PipeVillains, of course, is their defining album, and also their debut, featuring the hit single 'Photograph.' And although the single as well as the album made serious waves in the industry, it wasn't until 'The Freshmen' was released as a single that the album really took off. With the album going platinum thanks to the second single, a second album was a definite as the band began to work together to release their self-titled sophomore effort in 1999. 2001 saw the release of a third album as well entitled Underneath.
The Verve Pipe Tickets - The Sound and Style of the Verve PipeWith their soft rock grunge sounds, they became an instant classic among college campuses everywhere, specifically in that era of rock n' roll when ballads were so dominant. 'The Freshmen' was exactly that -- a ballad. But not your traditional ballad. It had an important message behind it, and that's what made the Pipe's stardom explode in a major way. Let's not forget how infectious Brian Vander Ark's vocals were, though!
