TESLA is a multi-platinum-selling rock band from Northern California known for their melodic songs and down to earth appeal. Thanks to their die-hard, loyal fan base and their younger generation offspring, TESLA continues to tour to sold-out crowds around the world.

After playing several showcases in Los Angeles, TESLA quickly scored a deal with Geffen and released their debut album, Mechanical Resonance, in 1986; it produced the hard rock hits and crowd favorite, "Modern Day Cowboy" and "Little Suzi." Mechanical Resonance reached the Top 40 on the album charts, and eventually went platinum.

It was the follow-up, 1989's, which truly broke the band. The first single, "Heaven's Trail (No Way Out)," was a hit with hard rock audiences, setting the stage for the second single, a comforting ballad called "Love Song" which substituted a dash of hippie utopianism for the usual power ballad histrionics.

"Love Song" hit the pop Top Ten and made the band stars, pushing The Great Radio Controversy into the Top 20 and double-platinum sales figures; the follow-up single, "The Way It Is," was also a hit.

In keeping with their unpretentious, blue-collar roots, TESLA responded to stardom not by the glam theatrics of their tour mates and peers of the era, but by stripping things down. The idea behind 1990's, Five Man Acoustical Jam was virtually unheard of -- a pop-metal band playing loose, informal acoustic versions of their best-known songs in concert, plus a few favorite covers.

TESLA's music was sturdy enough to hold up when its roots were exposed, and one of the covers, "Signs," became another Top Ten hit, as well as the band's highest-charting single. Not only did Five Man Acoustical Jam reach the Top 20 and go Platinum, it helped directly inspire MTV's "Unplugged" series, both with its relaxed vibe and its reminder that acoustic music could sound vital and energetic. This album is credited for starting the whole “Unplugged” craze of the ‘90s which included artist like Eric Clapton, Nirvana, and many others following suit with acoustic live albums.

In 2008, the band released its seventh studio album, Forever More, an all-new collection of songs including, "I Wanna Live," “Breakin’ Free,” "Fallin' Apart" and the title track “Forever More.” The release reunited the band with producer Terry Thomas, who helmed 1994's, Bust a Nut.

TESLA is more creative now than ever, simultaneously creating and producing their own videos and albums. The release of the self-produced Comin Atcha Live 2008! marks their first ever HD release of a full electric concert DVD.

With this new-found creativity and the album Forever More, the band has taken control of their career, releasing the album on CD (and a limited-edition vinyl package) around the world through their band-owned and operated label, TESLA Electric Company Recordings.
