When you think of Collective Soul, the first thing that comes to mind is their breakout hit 'Shine'. But the band's music is far more than just that. They have a number of major releases and a live show that mixes all of these songs together.
Originally formed in 1992, Collective Soul has been a staple of the American rock scene ever since. They have had a lot of success and are still loved by fans all over the world.
The group is made up of Ed Roland, Will Turpin, Dean Roland and Jesse Triplett, all hailing from Stockbridge in Georgia. The band's music is a mix of hard rock and post grunge, with Ed Roland's vocals setting the tone for their sound.
In the 1990s, Collective Soul gained international success and became the number one selling alternative rock band in the United States. The band's self-titled debut album spent 76 weeks on the Billboard 200 and went triple platinum.
On this album, the singles "Shine," “Breathe,” and "Gel" all reached No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock charts.
Their fourth album, Dosage, was released in 1999 and reached platinum status. The album's lead single, “Heavy,” spent 15 weeks at No. 1.
