Vertical Horizon released a new album, The Lost Mile, last year, but it wasn’t really on the mind of frontman Matt Scannell when the band performed at DC’s City Winery recently. Instead, the concert spanned the career of Matt’s band, founded originally in DC, with a big focus on Everything You Want, its 1999 hit album, Everything You Want, according to Setlist.fm.
Matt formed Vertical Horizon while a student at Georgetown University in DC in 1991. The band’s biggest hit remains “Everything You Want,” which hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Matt and company closed the main set with that track and also played another five songs from the album during their show at City Winery on Jan. 18.
Vertical Horizon performed only one or two songs from their most recent album, The Lost Mile. Stream The Lost Mile by Vertical Horizon on Spotify:
