Rob Thomas is one of the most distinctive artists of this or any other era – a gifted vocalist, spellbinding performer and accomplished songwriter known worldwide as lead singer and primary composer with Matchbox Twenty, as well as for his multi-platinum certified solo work and chart-topping collaborations with other artists. Among his countless hits are solo classics like “Lonely No More,” “This Is How A Heart Breaks” and “Streetcorner Symphony,” Matchbox Twenty favorites including “Push,” “3AM,” “If You’re Gone” and “Bent,” and, of course “Smooth,” his 3x RIAA platinum certified worldwide hit collaboration with Santana. Thomas earned three Grammy Awards for his role as co-writer and vocalist on “Smooth,” which topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for an astounding 12 consecutive weeks and spent 58 total weeks on the chart, the No. 1 song in Billboard’s Top Hot 100 Rock Songs chart history and No. 2 Hot 100 song of all time. The No.1, multi-platinum “… Something to Be,” made history as the first album by a male artist from a rock or pop group to debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 since the chart was launched.
Thomas’ highly-anticipated new album “The Great Unknown” – his first new solo album in more than six years – arrives everywhere on Friday, Aug. 21.
