ONE REPUBLIC – Love Runs Out




OneRepublic is an American pop rock band from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Formed in 2003 by Ryan Tedder and Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on MySpace as an unsigned act.

In 2003, the band was discovered by actress Kelly Barrett in Hollywood who connected them directly with her cousins Jimmy Ienner and Donnie Ienner, who was the President of Sony at that time, by making one phone call to get the AR Reps to their show.

They then signed to Sony BMG for three years, before moving to Mosley Music Group.

In 2007, OneRepublic released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud. Its lead single, “Apologize” was notably remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, reaching number one in sixteen countries, subsequently earning them a Grammy Award nomination.

The second single, “Stop and Stare” mirrored its predecessor’s success. The album was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA).

The band’s second album, Waking Up (2009), produced the successful singles, “All the Right Moves“, “Secrets“, “Marchin On“, and “Good Life“, the latter reaching the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100.

One Republic‘s third album, Native (2013), became the band’s first top ten album on the Billboard 200, and highest charting album to date, charting at number four.

The lead single, “If I Lose Myself” charted within the top ten in several countries, while the album’s third single, “Counting Stars“, became the band’s most successful single in recent years, obtaining top five placements in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, the U.S. and the UK.

This marks their highest charting single in the United Kingdom to date. It has also peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, matching their highest peak of “Apologize” in 2007.

OneRepublic‘s varied style of music has been described by Ryan Tedder: “We’re no respecter of genre.

If it’s a good song or a good artist whether rock, pop, indie or hip hop, they’ve probably influenced us on some level…nothing’s new under the sun, we’re a sum of a bunch of parts. “

They cite The Beatles and U2 as heavier influences on its music. OneRepublic has expressed a desire to move listeners onstage the way U2 does.
