Hire Train:
GRAMMY award-winning Train is an American rock band from San Francisco, formed in 1993.

Train began in 1994 when Pat Monahan, an Erie, Pennsylvania, native living in Los Angeles, met Rob Hotchkiss (who left the band in 2003). After moving to San Francisco and appearing in coffeehouses as an acoustic duo, they added Colin (bass) and Stafford (guitar), who, like Hotchkiss, were veterans of the Apostles, an L.A. band. Scott Underwood came on board as drummer shortly afterward.

In 1996, the band went to New York City to play a showcase date for Columbia Records. The company turned them down. “We decided maybe they were right,” Monahan said years later, “We made a lot of changes with the band, and I changed in my life, by asking myself how I could be a better bandmate, friend, husband, and father.”

Subsequently, the band decided to release their first self-titled CD independently.

By 1997, they were touring nationally, opening concerts for bands, such as Barenaked Ladies, Hootie & the Blowfish, Cracker and Counting Crows.

In February 1998, Train was picked up by Aware/Columbia, and the band hit the road in a rundown 1987 Dodge Ram van with a little red trailer. It stayed on the road for the next two years.

In Autumn 1998, the Fox Television series, “Party Of Five,” began to feature Train’s first single, “Free,” which had already received steady radio play. By August, a second single, “Meet Virginia,” led Train to a four week stay at #1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers chart.

In November 1999, the album was certified RIAA gold. It went platinum in March 2000.

Early in 2000, Train took a break from the road to begin recording a new album with producer Brendan O’Brien. The band recorded for the rest of the year, between headlining tour dates, and making television appearances.

Drops of Jupiter, the band’s second album, was produced by Brendan O’ Brien, who has also worked with artists such as Pearl Jam, King’s X, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen & The E-Street Band and Neil Young.

When Drops of Jupiter arrived on March 27, 2001, its title track, “Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me),” was already a hit on several Billboard charts. The song’s undeniable hook and lush orchestration by Paul Buckmaster won over scores of new fans and radio listeners.

By June, “Drops of Jupiter” was RIAA-certified platinum. By April 2002, the single had spent a total of 53 weeks on the Hot 100. It won a Best Rock Song Grammy for Train, as well as a Best Arrangement Grammy for Buckmaster.

The release of “My Private Nation” in June 2003 reflects the change and growth spurred by the “Drops of Jupiter” whirlwind. As Scott puts it, “Spiritually and culturally, we’ve all grown tremendously. We’re very close, we know each other so well, but right now it’s nice to know how to completely live in this world as professional musicians.”

In November 2012, Train released “Bruises”, a country-oriented duet with Ashley Monroe. The song has also been recorded with different female singers: For Canada, the song was recorded in both English and French with Marilou, and for Australia with Delta Goodrem.

On the January 26, 2013, airing of Saturday Night Live, the band was parodied in the “Band Face-Off” sketch where they invade a bar and get in a conflict with Adam Levine, and are later joined by Jason Mraz and John Mayer. Train made a statement afterwards that they approved of the parody.

From July 11 to August 14, 2013, Train toured the United States and Canada, in 25 headlining shows titled Mermaids of Alcatraz Tour. The tour included singer Gavin DeGraw, The Script, and Michael Franti & Spearhead. Country music singer Ashley Monroe joined part of the tour.

On January 22, 2018, Train announced a summer 2018 tour with Daryl Hall and John Oates. It ran from May 1, 2018, through August 11, 2018. To celebrate the tour, the artists collaborated on a new single titled “Philly Forget Me Not”, which was released on March 29, 2018. A couple months later, on May 24, 2018, Train released another new single with artists Cam and Travie McCoy titled “Call Me Sir”.

On April 14, 2022, the first promotional single from the album was released, entitled “Running Back (Trying to Talk to You)”.

On May 6, 2022, the second promotional single, titled “Turn the Radio Up” featuring Jewel was released.

On May 18, 2022, the third and final promotional single, titled “Cleopatra,” featuring Sofía Reyes was released.
