Train, the multi-platinum, San Francisco-based band, made its first mark on music history in 2001 with the Grammy Award-winning song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)” and chart-topping singles like “Meet Virginia” and “Calling All Angels.”  The band earned its third Grammy in 2011 for the worldwide smash “Hey, Soul Sister” from the album Save Me, San Francisco.

“Hey, Soul Sister” hit #1 at radio in the U.S. and in 15 countries abroad and was the top selling single of the year in the U.S. Save Me, San Francisco has sold over one million albums worldwide and over ten million tracks. The band is currently working on their follow up to their most recent album, California 37, which contained  the global hits “Drive By,” and “50 Ways to Say Goodbye”.

In 2011, Train launched the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Company, which benefits Family House, a Bay Area nonprofit providing temporary housing to the families of seriously ill children being treated at University of California San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital.

Train is an American pop rock band from San Francisco. The band currently consists of a core trio of Pat Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar), and Scott Underwood (drums).

With a lineup that included original members Monahan, Stafford, Underwood, Rob Hotchkiss and Charlie Colin, the band achieved mainstream success with their debut album Train, which was released in 1998 with the hit “Meet Virginia”. Train’s 2001 album, Drops of Jupiter contained the lead single “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)”, which won two Grammy Awards in 2002. The album was certified double platinum in the United States and Canada and remains the band’s best-selling album to date.

Train’s third studio album, My Private Nation, released in 2003, was certified platinum in the United States with the hit “Calling All Angels”. Following the departures of Hotchkiss and Colin, the band released their fourth album, For Me, It’s You in 2006, with Brandon Bush (keyboards) and Johnny Colt (bass).

In late 2009, Train released the album Save Me, San Francisco, from which the album’s three singles—-the RIAA 6x Platinum-certified international hit “Hey, Soul Sister”, “If It’s Love” and “Marry Me”—-reached high positions on the Billboard Hot 100 at numbers 3, 34, and 34, respectively. The album itself has been certified gold by both the RIAA and ARIA and has sold 954,000 units. Since 2008, Jerry Becker (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals) and Hector Maldonado (bass, guitar, percussion, backing vocals) have been touring and recording with the group around the world.

In April 2012, Train released their sixth studio album titled California 37. The first single from the album entitled “Drive By” reached number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a Top 10 hit in the UK, their first Top 20 single since 2009.

“Drive By” was released worldwide on January 10, 2012. It peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as reaching Platinum certifications in Australia New Zealand, and the United States.

On April 13, 2012, Train released their sixth studio album, California 37. Monahan said that a majority of the writing happened while the group was touring Save Me, San Francisco. “I didn’t spend 3 months or 5 months writing, I just wrote throughout the course of the last 3 years,” said Monahan. “We have 13 songs that we’ve recorded and I want to hear every single one of them over and over again.” The album release was preceded by a promotional single of “Feels Good at First” on March 21, for iTunes Store customers who pre-ordered the album.

The album debuted at number 10 on the UK Albums Chart, and became their highest-charting album since Drops of Jupiter which peaked at number eight in 2001. In the United States, California 37 debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 76,000 copies. It is their fourth top 10 album and their highest-charting album in the US.

Train’s next single, “50 Ways to Say Goodbye”, was released on June 11, with its “self-deprecating lyrics about the failure in gracefully ending a relationship”, coupled with “slightly tacky mariachi horns”. It peaked at number 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, and charted for 16 weeks and was certified gold by the RIAA on September 20.For the summer of 2012, Train toured the East coast of the United States.

In November, 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.

In December, Train released the single, “Mermaid”. The group would later film the song’s video at the 2013 Pro Bowl in Honolulu.

Train toured the United States and Canada from July 11 – August 14, 2013 in 25 headlining shows titled Mermaids of Alcatraz Tour. The tour included singer Gavin DeGraw, The Script, Michael Franti & Spearhead.Country music singer Ashley Monroe, will join part of the tour where she plans to sing “Bruises” and one or two of her songs from her album.

In November, Train announced plans for a new album to be released in the summer of 2014. A new single is to come out in June 2014 and a new album is expected September 2014.
