One of year's biggest surprises may well be the stunning success of San Franciscan band Train--who enjoyed massive popularity nearly 10 years ago with such singles as "Drops Of Jupiter" and, later, "Calling All Angels."
The band's return to the forefront comes via the hugely successful single "Hey, Soul Sister" from their most recent album Save Me, San Francisco. The fifth album in the band's long career--they've been together since 1994 and now consist of singer Pat Monahan, guitarist Jimmy Stafford, and drummer Scott Underwood--Save Me is a mature, well-crafted work with sharp, often inspirational lyrics throughout.
Y! Music has had a long history with Train--in fact here's a link to check out a video shot the last time they were in our studios--and we were happy indeed to welcome both Pat Monahan and Jimmy Stafford to our offices again recently.
