San Diego, California's Big Mountain evolved out of the bands the Rainbow Warriors and Shiloh around 1991.
They toured and played a diluted form of reggae with a line-up consisting of Quino (vocals), Lance Rhodes (drums, percussion), Billy Stoll (keyboards), Lynn Copeland (bass), James McWhinney (vocals) and Jamaican Tony Chin (lead guitar). Jerome Cruz was the original lead guitarist.
Their biggest hit was a cover of Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way", thanks to being featured in the movie Reality Bites.
Big Mountain was also the first reggae band to perform in China.
