(Vocal/instrumental group, 1970–present)

An Anglo-American trio formed in the UK by Gerry Beckley (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Dewey Bunnell (guitar, vocals) and Dan Peek (guitar, vocals, keyboards), sons of US military personnel and British mothers. America’s acoustically backed three-part harmonies were reminiscent of Crosby, Stills and Nash. Best-known for the transatlantic 1972 hit ‘Horse With No Name’, the band worked with Beatles producer George Martin on four albums from 1974–77, slimming to a duo when Peek departed.
