Train Bio

Train

A pop rock band formed in San Francisco, California, Train stormed onto the music scene with its self-produced eponymous debut album in 1998. The album contained hit singles “Free,” “I Am,” and “Meet Virginia,” which hit the second spot on the Adult Top 40 in America. Train eventually reached number one on the Heatseekers chart.

The band’s song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” from its second album, Drops of Jupiter, won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. The album debuted at number six in the U.S. upon its release and was certified twice platinum by both the RIAA in the U.S. and CRIA in Canada. “She’s on Fire,” the record’s second single, eventually reached number twenty-one on the Adult Top 40 chart.

Train performances are characterized by the energy brought to the show by the band’s frontman, Pat Monahan, who never fails to get the crowds singing along to catchy favorites like 2009’s “Hey, Soul Sister.”

In 2012, Train released its sixth studio album, California 37, to mixed critical reviews, but reached the expected level of commercial success by selling seventy-six thousand copies in its first week.

Don’t forget to purchase your Train tickets as soon as they become available for a show near you, because they’re sure to sell out quickly.

I liked Train right off the bat. There's a song on the each of their CDs to match every mood your in. The best part is you think you are only getting 10 songs but if you wait a few minutes after the last listed song plays, there's 2 more songs that are really great. I love hidden tracks and this band gives you more than the usual one. Talk about getting your money's worth! I had a chance to go to one of their concerts July 2011 and WOW it was awesome! They had Maroon 5 and Gavin Degraw open and the concert was fantastic! I went again this past September and it was equally as great! Next year?? If they come to town you bet!

It continues to amaze me how successful of a career Train has managed to create for themselves. Their poppy version of adult contemporary rock seems like it continually belongs on movie soundtracks, yet they somehow manage to keep churning out hits, even if they are a little cheesy. “Meet Virginia”, “Drops of Jupiter”, and “Hey, Soul Sister” are just a few of their songs that managed to get continual radio play. Although the songs can sometimes be annoying they usually end up being pretty catchy. I’ve never been to one of their concerts but I could just as easily see them playing to a crowded theater as I could the state fair. Regardless, they seem to have fun with their music and make a lot of people happy.
