OneRepublic shot to fame on MySpace in 2007 with their hit song “Apologize,” captivating thousands of fans before they even had a record. The remix version, featured on Timbaland’s CD “Shock Value,” reached No. 1 in 16 countries and gained 10 million downloads, subsequently earning them a Grammy Award nomination. The band also achieved national success with their second single, “Stop and Stare.” “Dreaming Out Loud” was certified gold in the United States, Austria, Australia and Canada.
The Daylights are a commanding, three-piece alternative rock band from Los Angeles. They released their debut album this past September and recently have toured with Katy Perry and Civil Twilight. Their songs are featured in a host of TV shows and movies including the theme song to ABC’s “The Big Day,” “One Tree Hill,” “Las Vegas,” “Providence” and “Laguna Beach.”
