Matchbox Twenty formed in Orlando in 1995; by the following year the rock band had landed a contract with Atlantic. The group’s debut album was a worldwide blockbuster, certified 12-times platinum in the US. Four tracks off Yourself or Someone Like You were released as singles; all made the Top 10. Subsequent releases did nearly as well; songwriter and lead singer Rob Thomas raised the group’s profile even higher when he sang “Smooth” on Santana’s 1999 Supernatural album, another huge hit. In 2005 Thomas launched a parallel and successful solo career; he’s currently touring in support of his fourth album, Chip Tooth Smile.
