Train - Feels Good At First

Feels Good At First
By Train. Pop; Rock. Piano/Vocal/Guitar. 5 pages. Published by Hal Leonard - Digital Sheet Music (HX.242530)

Train was formed in 1994 with the philosophy that if you write and do great songs, people will listen. The core of the band was formed when Rob Hotchkiss, the former lead singer of a Los Angeles band called The Apostles, befriended Patrick. Patrick and Rob, armed with a guitar and two strong voices, started playing every cafe in San Francisco, sometimes two a night. Eventually, wanting to expand to a full band, the duo found three new members to complete the quintet: "We recruited Rob's former Apostles bandmates: Jimmy Stafford (lead guitar), and Charlie Colin (bass). Charlie introduced us to his friend Scott Underwood (drums), who rounded out the line-up."
Train has been crisscrossing the country in support of their debut release, all in the hope of fulfilling the prophetic quote of J. Poet from the San Francisco Chronicle who says, "This Train is bound for glory." The broad appeal of Train's powerful songs and stage presence has generated a great deal of interest from both fans and the music industry in a short amount of time. The band says, "We enjoy the road. When you're on the road, you get that instant gratification. Every day, you get that 'hey you're great, keep doing this.' People scream and ask for your autograph. Those are the things we've been dreaming about since we were kids."
