Silverchair

S

tarted by school chums Daniel Johns (vocals/guitar) and songwriting partner Ben Gilles (drums), along with Chris Joannou (bass) Silverchair started by winning a national talent contest and got their Tomorrow track played on major U.S. alternative radio stations. Released as a single in the summer of 1994, it scaled the domestic charts making them overnight sensations. The next two singles followed the same path until the release of their debut album Frogstomp (1995) riding the Grunge tide to the top of the U.S. charts and resting at 9, while in England they got a foothold at 49. Freakshow (1997), likewise, was a success making 12 U.S./38 U.K. By the time Neon Ballroom was released in 1999 to a 50 U.S./29 U.K. they had lost much of their metallic roots and replaced them with more string based tunes, all the same their formula seemed to be working now at the height of their career.
