The genealogy and musical roots of Firefall run deep in the fertile soil of American folk/rock music. Along with contemporaries like Crosby, Stills and Nash, The Band, The Eagles and Loggins and Messina, they created a sound that defined a generation and forever changed the musical landscape. Defying industry labels, they creatively melded country, folk, easy listening and rock 'n' roll to create a sound that was uniquely their own. Firefall is one of the few surviving bands of this genre, remaining true to the founding vision throughout the bands' 30 year history.
From 1976 through the 1980s, Firefall saturated the radio waves with a string of Top 20 hits, selling millions of albums and earning two platinum and three gold records for their efforts. They toured the world over, sharing stages with supergroups like Fleetwood Mac, The Band, The Doobie Brothers, Marshall Tucker, The Beach Boys and America, to name a few. Their dynamic and dazzling live performances gained them a huge and loyal fan base; one that continues to grow even now. Their much loved hits are faithfully recreated with a freshness rare in live performances of such classics. With their newer material, they continue to demonstrate the diversity of the band's musical excellence. In keeping with the times, the shows often include acounstic "mini sets" and extended jams, which speak directly to the ever growing new generation of fans.
