Xeb brings together three original members of Third Eye Blind. Kevin Cadogan, Tony Fredianelli and Arion Salazar’s contributions span 17 years of the band’s history.
Cadogan, who was a signatory to Third Eye Blind’s Elektra record deal, performed lead guitar and composed the music to 10 of the 14 songs on 3eb’s 1997 self-titled debut album which went six times platinum. Cadogan also composed the music to six songs on 3eb’s double platinum selling sophomore album Blue including the fan favorite “Wounded”. Cadogan has been hailed as a master innovator by Guitar Player Magazine and toured from 1996 through 199,9 performing his co-authored radio hits “How’s It Going To Be”, “Graduate”, and “Losing A Whole Year”.
In San Francisco 1993/94, they wrote and performed under the name Third Eye Blind until Fredianelli exited the band that same year, but not before contributing musical production elements to songs on the debut such as “Motorcycle Drive By” and the hit “Semi-Charmed Life”. Fredianelli later contributed his signature backing vocals and guitar, ushering in a new sound for Third Eye Blind that carried through the fourth album. Fredianelli composed the music to many songs on the certified gold album Out Of The Vain. His co-authored radio hits include “Blinded”, “Non-Dairy Creamer” and 2009’s “Bonfire” from the #1 selling album Ursa Major.
Grammy nominated bassist and composer Arion Salazar co-wrote many songs (credited and un-credited) throughout the band’s career including the hit “Never Let You Go” along with other fan favorites spanning the bands career. Salazar is credited as a producer on Third Eye Blind’s Blue and Out Of The Vein albums and is known for his signature use of double/effected bass tracking and vintage keyboards.
