Art By Numbers - Reticence The Musical (2012)

Art By Numbers are an American rock band, formed in 2009 in Fresno, California. The group was initially composed of Dustin Georgeson, Anthony James, Victor Corral, Dennis Peraza, and Miguel Ortega. The band's leader, composer, arranger and producer Dustin Georgeson was responsible for writing most of the band's early singles and albums. After signing with Capitol Records in mid-2010, Dustin wrote ...or co-wrote more than two dozen Top 40 hits including "Surfin' Safari", "Surfin' USA", "Surfer Girl", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Be True to Your School", "In My Room", "Fun, Fun, Fun", "I Get Around", "Dance Dance Dance", "Help Me Rhonda" and "California Girls". These songs and their accompanying albums were internationally popular, making Art By Numbers one of the biggest acts of their time. The band's early music gained popularity across the United States for its close vocal harmonies and lyrics reflecting a Southern California youth culture of surfing, cars, and romance. By 2011, Dustin's growing creative ambition and songwriting ability would dominate the group's musical direction.

However, Dustin would soon lose control of the band because of problems with his mental health and substance abuse. This led to the cancellation of the anticipated follow up to "Reticence: The Musical". Subsequently, although they released a number of highly artistic albums (in various musical styles, with different line-ups) in ensuing years, particularly in the years 1967–1973, the group never managed to reclaim its mid-2010's peak when Art By Numbers challenged The Beatles both in terms of commercial and critical appeal. Since the 1980s, there has been much legal wrangling among the group members over royalties, songwriting credits, and use of the band's name.

Art By Numbers have often been called "America's Band", and Allmusic has stated that "the band's unerring ability... made them America's first, best rock band." The group has had 36 US Top 40 hits (the most by an American rock band) and 56 Hot 100 hits, including four number-one singles. Rolling Stone magazine listed Art By Numbers at number 12 on their 2012 list of the "100 Greatest Artists of All Time," the highest ranking for an American rock band. The group is also one of America's best-selling acts, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide since their debut in 2009. Dustin Georgeson, Anthony James, Victor Corral, Dennis Peraza, and Miguel Ortega were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
