The Wallflowers is an American rock solo project of American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jakob Dylan. The Wallflowers were originally a roots rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1989 by Dylan and guitarist Tobi Miller.

Two former members have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.Following their eponymous debut album in 1992, the Wallflowers released what would become their best-known and highest-selling album, Bringing Down the Horse (1996), which included the hit songs "One Headlight," "6th Avenue Heartache," "The Difference," and "Three Marlenas."
