Deep Blue Something Biography
It all began to explode in 1995 for Texas alterna-popsters Deep Blue Something. Truly living the Rock-N-Roll dream, they had independently released a low budget record ("Home"), found radio and sales success with that record, and ultimately got signed to Interscope records-all on their own terms. World tours, multiple gold and platinum awards, and television appearances, is the dream of every band.
But be careful what you wish for, you may get more than you expect. Along with the explosion of their success, Deep Blue Something also achieved the racking up of no less than four lawsuits that brought their career to a screeching halt.
Long before their indie and major label success with "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and the "Home" album, DBS had released a lo-fi album on a local Dallas label entitled "Eleventh Song." While the album sold well at shows and in their hometown region, the recordings were not up to par for radio play, and the band decided to move on and record another album.
With no contractual obligations to their former label, the band began to record their next album in a tiny Denton, Texas studio for the meager sum of $2500. In early 1995, Dallas radio stations KDGE and KTXQ picked up on the first single from "Home," and the rocket that was "Breakfast at Tiffany's" was launched. After just a handful of spins, the stations were flooded with requests for the song, and their new label; Rainmaker Records couldn't keep enough product on the shelves. The demand was just too overwhelming.
Enter Interscope Records. Seeing the success that the band were having in the Midwest, Interscope came in with an offer that just couldn't be refused. "Home" was immediately released worldwide. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" became one of the hottest singles of 1995/96, reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Interscope's first #1 in the UK, and charting top five all over the world. Follow up singles "Halo" and "Josey" also received much international success, and the band appeared on Britain's "Top of the Pops" no less than four times. Suddenly the band found themselves in exotic locations such as Beijing, Jakarta, Manila, Taipei, and occasionally even in Dallas. . .but there just wasn't enough time to get to Australia, Iceland, or Israel, even though the band reached #2 in each country. The band was stretched so thin that at one point they found themselves playing four concerts in three countries in two days.

This was a very overlooked talented band. Most songs were catchy with acoustic and ringing lead guitars. The song "Done" should have been another world wide hit, if their label only knew what they were doing.
But legal law suits aside,I as a music lover was sad to see end of band in 2001! Long live the song "Breakfast at Tiffanys".
