OneRepublic

Happily for OneRepublic and its legions of fans, frontman Ryan Tedder is such a prolific hit machine that he provides enough material for the band as well as his many famous collaborators, including Beyonce, Adele and Jennifer Lopez. Formed in 2002, the Colorado pop-rockers’ lineup consists of Tedder, Zach Filkins, Drew Brown, Eddie Fisher and Brent Kutzle. They were a popular act on MySpace before ultimately signing with Timbaland’s label. Debut album ‘Dreaming Out Loud’ featured the single ‘Apologize,’ which was nominated for a Grammy and hit the top of the charts in 16 countries when it was remixed by Timbaland. It was just the first of many hits for Tedder and company, who scored their first Top 10 album with ‘Native’ and its smash ‘Counting Stars.’
