      Bio

      Matchbox Twenty (or MB20, MBT, M20, originally spelled Matchbox 20) is a Grammy-nominated rock band formed in Orlando, Florida.

      Matchbox Twenty has sold over 45 million albums worldwide from the releases of Yourself or Someone Like You, Mad Season, and More Than You Think You Are. They released their latest album, Exile on Mainstream, on October 2, 2007. The current members of the band are Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Brian Yale, and Kyle Cook. Rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor left the band in 2005, after performing on their first three studio albums. Rob Thomas is the principal songwriter and lead singer. Rob Thomas has created a well-established solo career for himself after releasing the album, …Something to Be and its follow-up album, Cradlesong.

      The Phonographic Performance Company of Australia announced that “How Far We've Come” was the most played recording in Australia in 2008. The PPCA also announced that Matchbox Twenty was the third most played artist in 2008.[1]

      Rob Thomas, Brian Yale, Jenny Taylia and Paul Doucette performed in the band Tabitha's Secret which originated in Orlando, Florida, with fellow members John Stanley and John Goff, before splitting to start a new band (what was to become Matchbox Twenty). After recruiting the talents of Adam Gaynor from Criteria Recording Studios in Miami and Kyle Cook from the Atlanta Institute of Music, the lineup was complete and ready to begin. The Southern states were a virtual hotbed of rock talent in the mid nineties with bands like Better Than Ezra, Deadeye Dick,The Willem McCormick Band, and Cowboy Mouth. Being in this geographical location helped Matchbox 20 score a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
