About Train

Train is a multi-GRAMMY and Billboard award-winning band from San Francisco, CA that has had 14 songs on Billboard's Hot 100 list since the release of their debut self-titled album. Train's climb to the top began in San Francisco in 1994, as the original 5-member band tenaciously built a loyal following, leading up to their own self-titled debut album, released by Columbia in 1998. The tumbling wordplay of "Meet Virginia" gave them their first unlikely radio hit and 2001's Drops Of Jupiter broke them to multi-platinum status thanks to the double-GRAMMY award-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40, and snaring the Best Rock Song GRAMMY award by beating out Coldplay and two U2 songs. The group won another GRAMMY award in 2011 for their global hit "Hey Soul Sister," the #1 best-selling smash and most downloaded single of 2010, from their multi-platinum album Save Me, San Francisco. Next was 2012's California37, which launched the hit "Drive By" reaching the Top 10 in 13 countries. They've sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, more than 30 million tracks, with multiple platinum/gold citations, including 3 GRAMMY awards, 2 Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. In 2014 Bulletproof Picasso-the band's 7th studio album-debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned rave reviews.

About Josh Kelley

Josh Kelley has been pursuing his own creative path since his childhood. Growing up Augusta, Georgia, in a close-knit family that encouraged his early interests in music, painting and drawing, he absorbed the influence of the R&B and soul that his mom loved, as well as inheriting his dad's love of vintage country, and his older brother's affinity for classic rock. During their early teens, Josh and his younger brother Charles (now one-third of Lady Antebellum) formed a band, Inside Blue, whose self-released indie CD gained airplay on local radio and caught the attention of soul legend James Brown, who expressed interest in signing them.
 
While studying art at the University of Mississippi, Josh recorded his indie solo debut Changing Faces, building an impressive amount of online buzz. His D.I.Y. ingenuity helped him to win a deal with Hollywood Records, which released his 2003 mainstream debut For the Ride Home, which spawned a Top Five single in the anthemic "Amazing." Kelley's sophomore effort, Almost Honest, including the Top Ten single "Only You," followed in 2005.
 
Despite those early successes, the artist chose to take a more hands-on approach to his career, releasing four independent albums - Just Say the Word, Special Company, the digital release Backwoods and the limited edition To Remember - between 2006 and 2008. Meanwhile, Kelley became a familiar media presence, thanks to high-profile appearances on Ellen, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Regis & Kelly and Last Call with Carson Daly. Meanwhile, his songs were featured in episodes of such shows as Smallville, Scrubs, Brothers and Sisters and MTV's The Hills.
 
Kelley then embraced his deep country roots, signing with MCA Nashville and releasing the steeped-in-tradition album Georgia Clay in 2011. That album's title track became a substantial country hit, helping to expand his extraordinarily loyal, open-minded fan base, which has continued to embrace his music, even during his recent recording hiatus.
 
"I just did this acoustic tour, and I was so nervous about what attendance was gonna be like, because I hadn't been out in so long," he explains. "But we sold out 80 percent of the shows. And when I got on stage, it would always be a surprise to me, like, 'Whoa, these people still care!' My fans are pretty awesome, and I definitely don't take that stuff for granted."
