Sugar Ray formed in Orange County, the heavily suburban area south of Los Angeles, in 1992. Guitarist Rodney Sheppard, bassist Murphy Karges, and drummer Stan Frazier had been playing parties together in a hard rock/heavy metal cover band, Shrinky Dinx. Friend Mark McGrath became the lead singer of Shrinky Dinx after jumping up on-stage to perform one night, and they soon began collaborating on original material.
EXPAND FULL BIO
Sugar Ray released their debut album, Lemonade and Brownies, in the spring of 1995. Their second album, Floored, became double-platinum hit thanks to ‘Fly,’ a laid-back groove that was seemingly tailor-made for summertime. With help from reggae toaster Super Cat, ‘Fly’ set new airplay records at modern-rock radio and reigned as one of the summer’s most ubiquitous hits. Sugar Ray delivered their third album in early 1999. The title, 14:59, was a wry reference to Andy Warhol’s ’15 minutes of fame’ dictum, but as it turned out, the group’s time wasn’t up by a long shot. 14:59 wound up outselling its predecessor, eventually going triple platinum. The first single, the ‘Fly’-like ‘Every Morning,’ shot to number three on the pop charts and became the group’s second number one at modern-rock radio. Sugar Ray returned in the summer of 2001 with their self-titled fourth album, which entered the charts at number six and gave the band its first-ever Top Ten album; meanwhile, lead-off single ‘When It’s Over’ became another substantial hit in the familiar Sugar Ray mold. In 2009 they returned with the single ‘Boardwalk’ along with the album Music for Cougars.
