Hailing from San Francisco, Calif., Train 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 five-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 “California 37,” 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 three GRAMMY awards, two Billboard Music Awards and dozens of other honors. In 2014 “Bulletproof Picasso,” the band’s seventh studio album, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned rave reviews. In January 2017, the band released their eighth studio album, “A girl a bottle a boat,” via Columbia Records spawning the lead single, “Play That Song,” which went platinum in four countries including the U.S., hit Top 5 on the U.S. iTunes chart, Top 10 at Hot AC radio, and charted at Adult Top 40.
