Originally comprised of Pat Monahan, Rob Hotchkiss, Jimmy Stafford,
Charlie Colin and Scott Underwood and starting out in San Francisco, the band would go through a series of unsuccessful label
signings, before eschewing big labels entirely and focusing on promoting their work on their own. In a string of shows during
the 90s, the group built up a loyal fanbase and tons of word of mouth hype when it stole the show while opening for some of
the biggest rock bands of the 90s era, including Hootie & the Blowfish, Counting Crows, Cracker and Barenaked Ladies.
widespread local success, a favorable following and increasing name recognition, Train would not reach critical mass until
the release of global mega hit "Meet Virginia", their first flirtation with the Billboard Hot 100 that sling-shotted their
career to being a household name with an ever growing fan base that spread out across the globe. In the face of mainstream
success the band has also been meet with hardship, going through various personnel changes over the years, but has always
retained their signature style and drive embodied by frontman Pat Monahan, who has always kept the band rolling forward.
would strike in November 2006, with the group finding Train drawing on too much of their time and energy as they opted to
leave the spotlight and go on indefinite hiatus. Band members would strike out on their own, using the much needed break to
reconnect with their families and venture off into various solo projects. Loyal fans across the world would still be waiting
for Train in 2009, when their reunion tour would sweep through the biggest venues the world has to offer, proving once again
that this soulful country rock band is here to stay. Now with seven albums and counting, Train's unstoppable momentum is showing
no signs of abating as they continue to tour, write, and record with one of the most prolific work ethics in the industry
The band's claim to popularity and stardom was brought by their debut album, which
included the wildly popular "Meet Virginia" that invaded the airwaves and Billboard charts, a respectable twentieth place
on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The eponymous album was would be a huge critical and commercial success, garnering praise
from critics and scoring a coveted platinum certification. Their follow up album Drops of Jupiter would be produced by Brenan
O'Brien and makes waves with hits like "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)", which would become their most successful hit single to
date. They spend a year perched atop the Billboard Hot 100, with 54 weeks of being on air and scooped two Grammys for Best
Rock Song as well as for Best Arrangement.
Their third Album, gold certified My Private Nation featured a slew of hits
that included "Ordinary" and "Calling All Angels", both becoming top mainstream hits with the former being featured in Sam
Raimi's Spider Man 2.
The lovely and soulful track, "Marry Me", was used by a New Zealand based
organization against same sex marriage without the group's consent. The band would speak out against the organization, which
then ruined a planned performance at the Boy Scouts of America 2013 National Scout Jamboree.
