Fuel

Early years (1985–1997)

Carl Bell and Jody Abbott were in a college campus band, 'Wanted' (along with Robert Wagner and Mark Crawford) in Henderson, Tennessee. The band 'Wanted' transitioned into 'Phoenix', which was a touring band for the college primarily used to recruit prospective students. After college, the band carried on as, 'Real to Reel', playing local clubs in Tennessee. Singer/guitarist Brett Scallions joined the group after Bell and bassist Jeff Abercrombie saw him in a bar in Jackson, Tennessee in 1993.That same year, keyboardist/vocalist Erik Avakian joined the lineup and the band moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 1994 where they played at local Pennsylvania bars and nightclub as 'Small The Joy'. Changing the band name to 'Fuel', the band released their first EP Porcelain in 1996 and sold well locally, spawning a small radio hit with "Shimmer". The popularity of the EP brought them to the attention of Sony's 550 imprint, which released their second EP Hazleton the following year.

Something Like Human proved to be a commercial success for the band, as the album peaked at #17 on the U.S. Billboard charts[3] and has been awarded multi-platinum status (2 million units sold) by the RIAA.
