Dog's Eye View

Marrying college rock sensibilities with the domineering post-grunge sound of the mid-90s, Dog’s Eye View were an LA-based alternative rock band formed in 1994 by singer-songwriter Peter Stuart. Following a brief stint as a backup vocalist for Counting Crows and a couple of opening slots for artists like Tori Amos and Cracker, Stuart released a self-produced demo tape that he sold at his solo shows. With Jimbo Barton behind the console, he recorded an album’s worth of material aided by future bandmates Neil Nunziato (drums), Mike Visceglia (bass), Dawn Buckhola (cello), and Regina Ballantese (violin). Consolidated as a five-piece, the project took the name Dog’s Eye View and signed with Sony for their studio debut, 1995’s Happy Nowhere. The album reached Number 77 on Billboard’s Top 200 propelled by the jangly pop single “Everything Falls Apart.” Written in just fifteen minutes while hungover on a plane trip, the track peaked at Number 8 on the Top 40 Mainstream chart and Number 66 on the Billboard Hot 100. Released in 1997, sophomore effort Daisy failed to meet the high expectations set by its predecessor and Stuart decided to put the band on hiatus to focus on his solo career. Propeller, his first solo album, saw the light in 2002 via Vanguard Records and was followed by Dog’s Eye View’s third full-length, Tomorrow Always Comes, in 2005.
