Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1994 – present)

Dog’s Eye View are an alternative folk/rock group from Los Angeles, California who formed in 1994. The group’s revolving lineup circles around singer/songwriter Peter Stuart and currently consists of Stuart (vocals, guitar), Curt Schneider (bass, guitar, percussion), Andrew Williams (guitar) and Matt Beck (guitar). They are best known for their 1995 hit single “Everything Falls Apart”.

Peter Stuart (vocalist/guitarist) started out by playing in the acoustic club circuit. He then became a backup singer on a Counting Crows tour in 1994. He recorded an album with producer Jimbo Barton and a band that included Neil Nunziato on drums, Mike Visceglia on bass, Dawn Buckhola on the cello, and Regina Ballantese on the violin. They became known collectively as Dog’s Eye View. They signed with Sony Records and released the album Happy Nowhere in 1995, which peaked at #77 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts. The band recorded a song for the Vic Chesnutt benefit album “Sweet Relief Two”. In 1996 they had major success at radio and VH1 with the single “Everything Falls Apart”, which hit #8 on the Top 40 Mainstream charts and #66 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following this success, Dog’s Eye View toured with Counting Crows, Del Amitri, and The Wallflowers following the release of Happy Nowhere. However, a second single, “Small Wonders”, failed to chart.

    Just listened to some clips, and I feel obliged to agree with the guy before me. This isn't terrible or anything, but I have to imagine that there are a zillion musicians on MySpace, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, etc., who make this sort of music. Nothin' personal to any fans they may have.

    Happy Nowhere is a decent alt rock album, and 'Everything Falls Apart' is a great pop song.
