The Wallflowers is a Grammy Award-winning rock band from Los Angeles, California, fronted by Jakob Dylan. Formed in 1989 and originally known as The Apples, the ensemble has gone through numerous personnel changes with Dylan the only constant.
The Wallflowers' sound is influenced by a variety of groups including bands such as The Band, Bruce Springsteen, The Replacements, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and The Clash. Frontman Jakob Dylan said that the most influential album in his life is The Clash's London Calling: "They had something I could listen to that I wanted to associate."
Regardless of the line-up, the band's impact has earned The Wallflowers the friendship of many other notable musicians including Elvis Costello and Carole King, who have performed with The Wallflowers either live or in studio.
