Of America’s albums, six have been certified gold and/or platinum. The band’s hit singles during the ’70s included “Ventura Highway,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair,” all cornerstones of the era’s FM rock radio.
The band has been led for more than four decades by original founders and songwriters Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell, who drew listeners in with Beckley’s melodic pop rock and Bunnell’s use of folk and jazz elements. Dan Peek, who along with Bunnell and Beckley founded the band, left in 1977 to record Christian music. Peek died in 2011.
