Although Texas is known primarily for spawning such down-and-dirty rockers as ZZ Top and Pantera over the years, the early 21st century saw the emergence of Color, a Lone Star State band more akin to such pop/rock chart-toppers as Matchbox 20 and Third Eye Blind. The quartet features Chris Cann (vocals), Dean Truitt (guitar), Chad Salls (bass), and Van Robbins (drums), and originally formed in the late '90s in Austin (two of its members, Salls and Truitt, were members of the short-lived, early-'90s power pop outfit Seed). In September of 2001, the quartet issued its debut album, Are You with Me? (on the Arista imprint Melisma), produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Matt Serletic (whose previous credits include Matchbox 20, Aerosmith, and Santana, among others). ~ Greg Prato
