Rob Thomas Background
the helm of Matchbox Twenty is singer/songwriter Rob Thomas. As an Army brat, he spent his childhood bouncing between his
mother's Florida house and grandmother's house in South Carolina. At 17, he drifted around the Southeast singing in various
rock bands before he settled down in Orlando, Fla. He eventually met bassist Brian Yale and drummer Paul Doucette and the
trio played in several local bands before officially founding Matchbox Twenty. After recording a collection of demos, the
band was able to book gigs throughout the U.S. Their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, came after the band signed
to Lava. The album came out under the radar but with airplay from influential radio stations, their breakthrough hit, Push,
made its way to MTV. It turned out the band's debut album was only the prologue to their success story!
At the time,
Thomas himself, wasn't individually recognized. But that all took a turn when he co-penned a song, Smooth, for the album,
Supernatural, a Carlos Santana album. The song received a ton of airplay in 1999, and cemented Thomas' reputation as a talent
in his own right. The single garnered three Grammy Awards, including Song of the Year. Thomas even scored a spot on the coveted
Most Beautiful People list, compiled by People magazine. Matchbox Twenty continued their momentum with albums Mad Season (2000)
and More Than You Think You Are (2002), but decided they needed to take a hiatus. Thomas took advantage of the break and composed
his debut solo album. The single Lonely No More arrived in 2005, with boasting a funky dance-pop sound that was likened more
to the style of Justin Timberlake than Matchbox Twenty's material. The song also paved the way for the success of Thomas'
Something to Be album. As a solo act, Thomas stepped into the spotlight for some high-profile appearances, including the Live
8 concert in Philadelphia, collaborating with Stevie Wonder on Higher Ground. He also made an appearance for the MTV Katrina
Relief Concert in 2005. The Something to Be Tour kicked off in the fall of 2005, and a year later, he shared the stage with
Toby Lightman and Jewel.
Thomas gained more attention when Streetcorner Symphony was used in ABC's ads to promote the
Thursday night programming. Shortly after, the song was issued as a single.
Eventually, Thomas reunited with Matchbox
Twenty for the album, Exile on Mainstream. But he also continued his solo efforts, with Cradlesong.
Along with his Matchbox Twenty albums, Rob Thomas has issued two solo studio albums, 11 singles and two extended
plays to date.
Something to Be came out in the spring of 2005 and it shot to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and scored the
No. 1 spot on the Australian albums chart. The album included Lonely No More, which climbed to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot
100. The tune also claimed gold status.
Thomas' sophomore effort, Cradlesong, cracked the No. 3 spot on the Billboard
200. The album featured the track, Her Diamonds.
