Spoon is comprised of four gentlemen:
Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, Eric Harvey and Rob Pope.

Spoon full-lengths have included Telephono (1996), A Series Of Sneaks (1998), Girls Can Tell (2001), Kill The Moonlight (2002) and Gimme Fiction (2005), which received raves from THE NEW YORK TIMES, TIME, NEWSWEEK, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY and VANITY FAIR, and wound up on BLENDER and SPIN's Best of 2005 lists. Britt also co-authored the score to the feature film STRANGER THAN FICTION, to which Spoon contributed the exclusive track "The Book I Write" as well as several other songs. Their next release, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007), debuted at Number 10 on the BILLBOARD 200 as well as Number 1 on the BILLBOARD Top Independent Albums and was selected by ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE as #10 on their Top 50 Albums of 2007. 2010's Transference was the band's seventh studio album and debuted at number 4 on the BILLBOARD 200 chart. It also placed in Rolling Stone's 30 Best Albums of 2010.

After making three albums with Hightone, Dale released The Trucking Sessions on Koch Records in 1998. Including 14 original driving songs, the album received high praise and caused critics to compare him to chart-topping writer Red Simpson, who was responsible for some of the most iconic trucking tunes in country music.

Just two years after this success, Dale's fiancee died in a car accident. As chronicled in the Zalman King documentary Crazy Again (2006), he turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with her loss and nearly died of an overdose. Dale then checked himself into a mental institution and left a year later, releasing his tribute album to her called Every Song I Write Is For You (2001). After recording a few more albums, he decided to take a break from touring and moved to Maryland to be closer to his daughters.

Back in Texas and on the road in 2006, Dale has been trucking ever since and is now releasing his 20th album. His debut on indie label Red House Records, The Sun Sessions was recorded at Memphis' legendary Sun Studios with The Texas Two (bassist Chris Crepps and drummer Mike Bernal) in the stripped-down style of Johnny Cash's earliest recordings.

Like the early country legends of the 1950's and 1960's, Dale has a style and sound all his own. Tattooed and always dressed to the nines, he is a true entertainer, mixing humor and pathos into his lively shows. Whether playing with his Texas Two or with his rocking band the Lone Stars, Dale is sure to take us on one hell of a musical ride.
