Blues Traveler started out as a four-piece act comprising singer+harmonica player John Popper, guitarist Chan Kinchla, bassist Bobby Sheehan and drummer Brendan Hill; soon after forming in Princeton, New Jersey USA, in 1983, these high school friends moved to New York City playing nightly in the club and bar circuit. Balancing renowned musicianship with accessible songcraft, combining Pop hooks with Blues and Rock influenced grooves, the band was among the first in a new generation to win a reputation on the road for explosive live performances and intense fan loyalty.

After being signed to A&M Records, in May 1990 the band released its self-titled debut album making a modest impact on The Billboard 200 chart.
A year later, their next release titled "Travelers & Thieves", shot to #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers list and reached the #125 slot on The Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
Blues Traveler were forced to go on hiatus in 1992 when Popper was involved in a car crash that left the frontman confined to a wheelchair for a period of time.
The group returned with a new album, "Save His Soul", in April 1993, it broke into The Billboard 200 reaching #72 and spawned the Mainstream Rock top 40 hit, "Conquer Me".

September 1994 saw the release of "Four", this album rose to #8 on Billboard's Top 200 chart and became the band's biggest selling LP ever; it included the massive smash "Run-Around" which peaked at #8 on The Billboard Hot 100, cracked the top 20 of both Mainstream and Modern Rock Tracks charts and won Blues Traveler a Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Their multi-platinum album generated one more American Top 40 hit single with "Hook", which also crossed over into the Modern and Mainstream Rock top 20.
