Train


“Those were the best times of our lives – even though we didn't know it – living in San Francisco and struggling to make a band work."


Train frontman, Patrick Monahan stated, talking about the early years of the post-grunge, alternative rock band that formed in San Francisco during the mid-90's and continues to find some measure of success almost 15 years later.


The Lean Years


The group Train formed after Pat Monahan left Erie, PA in 1993, headed to warm, sunny California. When he arrived he met Rob Hotchkiss, formerly of the group Apostle. The two hit it off and began playing as a duo on the San Francisco coffeehouse scene. Eventually they added guitarist Jim Stafford, drummer Scott Underwood, and bassist Charlie Colin. During the next few years they built up quite a fan base in the Bay area. In addition, they were often the opening act for groups such as Counting Crows and Barenaked Ladies.


While playing smaller arenas and opening for more well-known groups the members of  Train were scrimping and saving and building up enough money to record their first album. Very few labels gave the group a second look but, Columbia Records finally took a chance on them, signing them to one of their small labels, Aware Records. Soon after they released the self-funded, self-titled album, Train (1998). Their first single, Meet Virginia, hit the top 40 the next year.


Soaring into Space


The group's breakout hit, however, was Drops of Jupiter, released in 2001.  The title cut from this project helped it reach multi-platinum certification. The single spent almost 40 weeks in the Top 40 and sent sales of the album above the three million mark. Along with the commercial success of the single came two Grammy Awards, Best Rock Song and Best Arrangement. The boys from San Francisco had finally arrived!


Again in 2003 the group scored a hit with the certified platinum, My Private Nation. This album's success was due, in large part, to the success of the first single, Calling All Angels. This album's success on the adult contemporary charts signified the movement of Train from a post-grunge, semi-alternative, group to a more versatile group with a broader, and somewhat older fan base.


In 2006 the group's success waned with the unsuccessful release of their fourth album, For Me, It's You. This release garnered the lowest album sales the group had seen throughout its entire career. As a result of this disappointment and a desire to spend more time with their families, the band went on a three-year hiatus, allowing Patrick Monahan to break away from the group for a while, releasing a solo album in 2007.


When the group came back from hiatus they were a bit of a different creature, becoming a trio consisting of Pat Monahan, Scott Underwood, and Jim Stafford.  They released their fifth album, Save Me, San Francisco, in 2009. This album takes the group back to it's rock roots, bringing them together as a unified group and paying tribute to the city that took a chance on them, all while chronicling the band's journey in song. The hit single from this album, Hey, Soul Sister seems to have revived the group's fan base, hitting #7 on the Billboard 100 and helping the album break into the Top 20. Much of the success of this single came from a surge in mp3 music downloads of the song.
