Collective Soul helped shape and define alternative rock

Collective Soul

Formed in the small town of Stockbridge, GA in the early 1990’s, Collective Soul consists of principal songwriter and frontman, Ed Roland (lead vocals/keyboards/guitars), Dean Roland (rhythm guitarist), Will Turpin (bassist), Johnny Rabb (drummer) and Jesse Triplett (lead guitarist).  Born during the rise of grunge and alternative rock, Collective Soul broke into mainstream popularity when they rose to international fame in 1994 with the rock anthem, Shine. The multi-platinum quintet has been making music for two decades since then and has a catalog of #1 hits under their belts. Collective Soul helped shape and define alternative rock with lots of guitars and attitude.

Collective Soul, the multi-platinum selling band that helped sonically define alternative rock, released their long-awaited ninth album, See What You Started By Continuing, on October 2nd, 2015. The group toured heavily through the fall and now their ready to get back on the road, announcing their See What You Started tour, which kicks off on April 15th in Nanaimo, BC. The tour will take the band across Canada, with dates through April, ending in Toronto during Canadian Music Week.
