Train

Train is a multi-Grammy and Billboard award-winning band from San Francisco that has had 14 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 list since the release of their self-titled debut album. Train's climb to the top began in San Francisco in 1994, as the original five-member band tenaciously built a loyal following that led up to their 1998 debut album, released by Columbia. The tumbling wordplay of "Meet Virginia" gave them their first unlikely radio hit and 2001’s Drops of Jupiter brought them to multiplatinum status thanks to the double-Grammy award-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40. On January 27, 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. Train frontman, Pat Monahan, partakes in other ventures outside of music with his newly launched Drops of Jupiter wine portfolio. Proceeds from the wine support Family House, a San Francisco charity that assists families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
