Blessid Union of Souls

With their optimistic, spiritual outlook and song-oriented mix of pop, R&B, and folk -- dubbed "rural soul" by the band -- Blessid Union of Souls quickly became one of the most popular bands in the post-Hootie & the Blowfish adult alternative radio format in the mid-'90s. Their 1995 debut album, Home, was a huge success, producing a Top Ten hit in the single "I Believe."
