      Better Than Ezra formed in 1988 when all original members were studying at Louisiana State University. Better Than Ezra tour dates were scheduled throughout Baton Rouge, to generate buzz for their demo tape. The band released an independent album, Surprise, in 1990 and toured vociferously to support it. However, tragedy befell the group when lead guitarist, Joel Rundell, committed suicide. Better Than Ezra immediately halted plans for continued touring and recording in light of the tragedy. They regrouped in 1993 to record Deluxe, in 1993 and independently released it gaining an almost immediate following that included major labels and millions of fans. After four years of constant touring, Better Than Ezra signed with Elektra Records and the rest is history.

      They reworked and released, Deluxe, shortly after being signed and scored a #1 single, "Good", in 1995. Of their success, frontman Tom Drummond stated "It took us seven years to get signed and then seven weeks to get to No. 1." Better Than Ezra toured extensively to promote the disc and scored a Platinum plaque. They released their sophomore set, Friction Baby in 1996, How Does Your Garden Grow? in 1998, and continued to tour extensively throughout the decade. By the turn of the millennium their music evolved into a more Adult Contemporary feel and they scored several hits in that format. Their 2005 album, Before the Robots scored three top thirty Adult Contemporary singles on the Billboard charts.

      The band's latest album, Paper Empire was released in 2009 and debuted at #69 on the Billboard 200, encompassing a near twenty year career on the charts. Known as consistent performers, Better Than Ezra tour dates have been scheduled constantly since even before they had a record deal and nothing has changed.
