One of the defining bands in the evolution of progressive rock, Jethro Tull emerged as a folk/hard rock band in 1967. Their album “Stand Up,” reached number 1 in the UK, leading to widespread touring by the band across the UK and US. Led by vocalist/flautist Ian Anderson, their musical style rapidly evolved in a progressive rock direction with the albums “Aqualung”, “Thick as a Brick”, and “A Passion Play” before going back to hard rock with elements of folk with the albums “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses”.
In total, Jethro Tull have sold more than 60 million albums around the world, with 5 Platinum-certified albums and a further 11 Gold. Their influence has been broad and crossed genres, with artists citing them as influences as diverse as Steve Harris of Iron Maiden, Bruce Dickenson, Joe Bonamassa, and Jenny Conlee of The Decemberists.
