Spain are a Los Angeles-based alternative rock band founded in 1993 by
Josh Haden (son of jazz bass icon Charlie Haden). Spain's debut 1995 CD, The Blue Moods Of Spain, garnered a devoted cult following and enabled the band to tour the U.S., Europe, and Australia. Songs from Blue Moods were featured in several different films and TV shows. Film director Wim Wenders commissioned the band to write a song for his film End Of Violence. Spain's song 'Spiritual' was recorded by Johnny Cash on his Grammy-winning, Rick Rubin-produced Unchained, and by Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny on their Grammy-winning Beyond The Missouri Sky.
Spain toured extensively for their 1999 sophomore CD She Haunts My Dreams, headlining large venues across Europe. A song from the album, 'Our Love Is Gonna Live Forever', was featured prominently in an episode of the HBO series Six Feet Under.
Spain's third CD before temporarily disbanding, I Believe, was released in 2001. Haden took an extended break from the band, recording a solo CD for Dreamworks Records (later released on his own Diamond Soul Recordings). A Spain best of CD, Spirituals: The Best Of Spain, was released in 2003.
Haden reformed Spain in 2007 with all-new members. A CD/digital single entitled 'I'm Still Free' was released in January 2010, and the band - bassist/vocalist Haden, lead guitarist Daniel Brummel (Ozma), guitarist/keyboardist Randy Kirk, and drummer Matt Mayhall - recently completed work on their first full-length album of new material in over ten years. 'The Soul Of Spain' will be released in May 2012
