Artist Biography by Timothy Monger

A dreamy folk-pop band from Pennsylvania who found niche success in the alt-rock community of the early '90s, the Innocence Mission's wistful sound is led by the husband-and-wife duo of Don and Karen Peris. Along with bassist Mike Bitts and drummer Steve Brown, they released a trio of well-regarded albums for A&M, the most visible of which was 1995's Glow, which yielded the folky sleeper hit "Bright as Yellow," a staple of modern rock radio and the Empire Records soundtrack. After slimming down to an acoustic trio with the departure of Brown, the band ushered in a successful second phase as a chamber folk act beginning with 1999's critically acclaimed Birds of My Neighborhood and continued into the 2010s with late-period highlights like 2007's We Walked in Song and 2018's Sun on the Square. The Innocence Mission continued working into the next decade with the glowing full-length See You Tomorrow.
