"Well I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow. Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there, counting crows. One for sorrow, two for joy. Three for girls and four for boys. Five for silver, six for gold. Seven for a secret never to be told." - "A Murder of One" from "August and Everything After"
In the early 1990's, the San Francisco Bay Area [California, USA] gave birth to numerous talented musicians. One of them was essential in forming the band Counting Crows that exploded onto the music scene [after years of playing the club circuit] with their album ""August and Everything After" in 1993. The band sold more than 20 million albums worldwide with 10 albums to date, including their 2013 digital release available only at US Tours, "Echoes of the Outlaw Roadshow."
