ABOUT BETTER THAN EZRA Along with such similarly styled outfits as the Goo Goo Dolls, the New Orleans-based trio Better Than Ezra helped open the floodgates for countless alt-pop acts of the late ’90s (including Semisonic, Matchbox Twenty, and Third Eye Blind) by merging college rock influences with mainstream aspirations. Better Than Ezra’s first major label album “Deluxe” spawned a sizeable radio hit with “Good,” which helped push the album to platinum status by the end of 1995. Since then the band has consistently produced riff driven melodic hits such as “Extra Ordinary”, “Desperately Wanting” and more, much to the delight of their loyal fan base.
