“…the consummate pop-rock craftsman who has been making it all sound so smooth for years.”
Rolling Stone

3 Time Grammy winner Rob Thomas, one of modern music’s most compelling and commercially successful artists. For 20 years, he has been the front man and primary composer for Matchbox Twenty, leading the band to multi-platinum success over the course of five albums and a string of No. 1 hits that include “Push,” “3AM,” “Bent,” “If You’re Gone,” “Unwell,” and “How Far We’ve Come." Thomas’ three  solo albums, 2005’s platinum-certified No. 1 album …Something To Be,  2009’s Cradlesong and 2015’s The Great Unknown generated the hit singles “Lonely No More,” “This is How A Heart Breaks,” “Her Diamonds”, “Someday” and “Pieces”.  Thomas made history with “…Something to Be” as having the first album by a male artist from a rock or pop group to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Thomas also wrote and performed Billboards #2 song of all time, “Smooth” with Carlos Santana.
