Singer/guitarist Paul Durham started the San Francisco alt.pop.rock band Black Lab in 1997 and released its critically acclaimed debut Your Body Above Me on Geffen Records. Following a national tour, two charting singles (‘Wash it Away’ and ‘Time Ago’), hot MTV action and way too many trashed hotel rooms, the band split up.
After signing with Epic Records in 2000, Durham started a new chapter of Black Lab with LA guitarist/programmer Andy Ellis. The band’s second album, See the Sun, featured ‘Learn to Crawl’ from Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man soundtrack.
After leaving Epic, the band established a strong web presence with Blacklabworld.com and more music followed: Passion Leaves a Trace, Technologie, Give Us Sugar, Two Strangers, Black Lab unplugged, A Raven Has My Heart, and Live at the Mercury Lounge.
Songs by the band litter film & TV, including tracks for “House M.D.,” Spider-Man, Blade: Trinity, “Pretty Little Liars,” Can’t Hardly Wait, “Banshee,” and others.
