Their four albums for Capitol records earned them respect amongst a wide national audience and their peers. They toured with some of the biggest drawing tours of the period including Yes, Peter Frampton, Gary Wright, and went on to work regularly with many of their favorites including Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, James Taylor, the Byrds and many others. Band members are Jon Pousette-Dart, Eric Parker on drums, Jim Chapdelaine on guitar and Paul Socolow on bass.
Jon Pousette-Dart has remained an active figure in NYC producing his latest CD's, TV specials, and film scores, all the while writing and recording with his many friends in Nashville, where the band recorded most of their Capitol releases with producer Norbert Putnam. He has established himself as a respected songwriter in collaborations with NRBQ's Al Anderson, Gary Burr, Jennifer Kimball, John Bohlinger, Tom Kimmel, Fred Knobloch, and more. He has produced 5 episodes of the History Channel's series "Gunfighters of the West", and his song "Fall On Me" was placed in ABC's wildly successful American serial drama television series "Lost".
The Band can be heard on Jon's new album, "Anti-Gravity," which ranks among the best offerings of his remarkable career. The album's eight songs have a sparkle and sheen that affirms his carefully-honed craft. These are eight songs graced by instantly engaging melodies? each an endearing encounter that aptly reflects the many aspects of his varied musical persona. The title track, written with band mate Jim Chapdelaine, boasts catchy hooks and reliable refrains. There are the aching, heartfelt ballads "Me and the Rain" and "Who I Am," the stirring "Great Wide Open" and the jaunty "Words."
"To me, the real barometer of success is when you can connect with someone, no matter where they're from, no matter what their background," Jon has stated. "The thing I'm most concerned with as a musician is to be timeless and real, and to tell stories that reflect ideals that don't just go and change with the moment. That's the job as I know it."
