Dog's Eye View is an American rock band formed in 1994. The band is best known for "Everything Falls Apart", its 1995 Top 40 single.[1]

History[edit]

The band was formed in 1994 by singer-songwriter Peter Stuart.[1] Stuart founded the band after being discovered by Adam Duritz, the lead vocalist of the Counting Crows.[1] He began recording music with producer Jimbo Barton and the new band, whose lineup included Neil Nunziato on drums, Mike Visceglia on bass, Dawn Buckhola on the cello, and Regina Ballantese on the violin. They became known collectively as Dog's Eye View.[citation needed]

By the time Dog's Eye View began recording their first album, Nunziato, Visceglia, Buckhola, and Ballantese had all departed.[citation needed] At this point, the band featured Stuart, lead guitarist Oren Bloedow, bassist John Abbey, and drummer Alan Bezozi.[citation needed] The band signed with Sony Records and released the album Happy Nowhere in 1995. The album peaked at No. 77 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts.[2] In 1996, they had major success at radio and VH1 with the single "Everything Falls Apart", which hit No. 8 on the Top 40 Mainstream charts[3] and No. 66 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4] Following this success, Dog's Eye View toured with Counting Crows, Del Amitri, and The Wallflowers.[citation needed] A second single, "Small Wonders", failed to chart.[citation needed]

The band's second album, Daisy, was released by Sony in 1997.[5]

In 2000, Stuart announced that he had left Columbia Records and was taking a hiatus from the band to pursue solo work.[6] He released a solo album, Propeller, on Vanguard Records in 2002.[7]

After an extended hiatus, Dog's Eye View released a third album (also on Vanguard); the album was entitled Tomorrow Always Comes.[8] It featured backing vocals by singers Jason Mraz and Kelly Moneymaker, as well as an appearance from Paul Doucette of Matchbox Twenty.[9]
