One Republic were formed by Ryan Tedder (vocals) and Zach Filkins (lead guitar) in 2003. The pop-rock band completed from Colorado completed their line-up with Drew Brown (guitar), Eddie Fisher (drums) and Brent Kutzle (bass).
The band’s first experience of the limelight came in 2007 after One Republic collaborated with producer Timbaland. Their first single, Apologise, was remixed by Timbaland and stayed in the Top five on the US charts for ten consecutive weeks.
The single is the lead track from their debut album Dreaming Out Loud (2007), which also includes another of the band’s most well-known songs Stop and Stare.
The follow-up arrived in the form of 2009’s Waking Up. In 2010 One Republic embarked on the Good Life tour. It was One Republic’s biggest tour to date and promoted the album Waking Up, which included the track Good Life.
One Republic released their third album Native in 2013. Again, the band scored well in the charts. This time it was with the single Counting Stars. The song has become One Republic’s biggest hit since Apologise, topping the UK charts for two weeks.
In the same year the band started their Native tour in America. One Republic were joined by The Script and American Authors during the first leg of their world tour.
One Republic’s tour in support of their album Native will head to the UK in October 2014 where the band will play their biggest UK shows to date.
