For the longest time, this group of former classmates from Louisiana State University kept the origin of their band’s name a secret. No matter how many times they were asked, they would plead the fifth, which spawned a ton of conspiracy theories amidst fans and critics. Was the name taken from a line in Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast or did poet Ezra Pound inspire it? According to a 2006 article in Clemson University’s college newspaper, the real explanation is much less sensational: “Once upon a time, a long time ago, before they were even remotely famous, the group was at a Battle of the Bands. They were still nameless and a band called Ezra had just finished up a set that wasn't warmly received. The band had to announce their name when they went up, so they called themselves Better Than Ezra.” There you have it, folks.
Mysterious monikers aside, Better Than Ezra has been churning out alt-pop hits since the mid-’90s. First there was “Good,” off the band’s 1995 major-label debut, Deluxe. Then, a year later, came Friction, Baby, which boasted alt-radio smashes like “Desperately Wanting” and “King Of New Orleans.” Together for almost 25 years, Better Than Ezra’s influence can still be heard today. For example, Taylor Swift covered the group’s song “Breathless,” off their album Before The Robots, at a 2010 performance at the Hope For Haiti Now: A Global Benefit For Earthquake Relief event. As the band head out on the road this summer, fans (aka Ezralites) can look forward to hearing the hits, in addition to the trio possibly previewing new material off their upcoming seventh studio album, All Together Now, out September 9, 2014.
