The group found worldwide acclaim following the release of a Timbaland remix of their single ‘Apologize’ off their debut album Dreaming Out Loud. The song received a five-time platinum certification from the RIAA and reached the top of the charts in over 16 countries.
Formed by high school friends Ryan Tedder and Zach Filkins in 2002, they were signed by Columbia Records shortly after. They were dropped by the label two months before the release of their debut album. The ensemble soon gained recognition as the number one unsigned act on MySpace. Through this platform they caught the attention of Timbaland’s label Mosley Music Group and soon became the first pop/rock group to join the hip hop legend’s label.
They have gone on to release two more studio albums and have a fourth in the pipeline.
Their Native tour is their largest to date and has seen the band play over 185 sold out dates around the world.
