Matchbox Twenty is Kyle Cook, Paul Doucette, Rob Thomas, and Brian Yale. The group has sold
over 40 million records worldwide, and earned multiple chart-topping singles, countless
accolades, including five GRAMMY® nominations, four American Music Award nods, and the
2004 People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Musical Group.”
Fueled by such classic songs as “Real World,” “Back 2 Good” and the No. 1 smash hits “Push”
and “3AM,” 1996’s Diamond-certified Yourself or Someone Like You proved a worldwide
sensation and instantly established Matchbox as global superstars. 2000 saw the band release
the four-times Platinum Mad Season, containing the No. 1 singles “Bent” and “If You’re Gone.”
Matchbox’s third release, More Than You Think You Are, also was certified Platinum and
featured the No. 1 hit, “Unwell.” 2007’s greatest hits compilation album with six new songs,
“Exile On Mainstream” yielded yet another No. 1 track, “How Far We’ve Come,” while the
band’s most recent album, 2012’s “North,” exploded into the top position on the Billboard 200
release – Matchbox Twenty’s first-ever chart-topper and No. 1 debut.
Furthermore, Rob Thomas has proven one of the most highly decorated artists of recent years,
receiving three GRAMMY® Awards, 11 BMI Awards, the first-ever Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal
David Starlight Award, and two Billboard “Songwriter of the Year” honors for both his charttopping
solo work, as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger, and

“Can’t Help Me Now.” Total record sales for his output exceeds 80 million worldwide.
ABOUT THE WALLFLOWERS:
Formed in Los Angeles in 1989 by singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan, The Wallflowers have won

received two GRAMMY® Awards (“Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal” and
“Best Rock Song”) in 1998 and is also listed at No. 58 in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest
Pop Songs.” The Wallflowers went on to release an additional three albums before going on
hiatus in 2005. Dylan then launched a solo career and released 2008’s Seeing Things and
Women + Country in 2012. Two years later, the Wallflowers reunited with their sixth studio
album, Glad All Over.
