ABOUT ALEX BAND, THE CALLING

Born and raised in the wild jungle of Hollywood, California, frontman and founding

member of The Calling, Alex Band, first discovered his love for singing and

songwriting at the age of 5 and was signed with RCA Records by age 15.

In 2001, the stars aligned and The Calling was born, exploding onto the airwaves

with their smash hit, "Wherever You Will Go", which reached the top of the charts

and stayed there for a record 23 weeks straight.

Through years of hard work and touring every inch of the planet, The

Calling found global success and the best fans in the world.

Seven #1 songs worldwide and over 20 million albums sold, the song that started it

all, “Wherever You Will Go” was named the #1 Song Of The Decade and the #3

Adult Pop Song of All Time by Billboard Magazine.

?“Wherever You Will Go” has been featured in a number of movies and TV shows

including Love Actually, Coyote Ugly, Smallville and Kate and Leopold.

?The Calling's debut album, Camino Palmero, was a true international hit, becoming

Certified Gold and/or Platinum in over 40 countries.

Before releasing their next album, Band was given the opportunity to work with guitar

legend, Carlos Santana, and sing the huge hit “Why Don't You and I" which has

been named the #5 Song Of The Decade and the #20 Adult Pop Song Of All Time

by Billboard.

The Calling's second album, Two, ?found its groove internationally, going #1 in the

UK, Japan, Brazil and Canada. Two's lead single, “Our Lives” was featured in the

closing ceremonies of the 2004 Summer Olympics and was also the opening song of

the 78th Academy Awards in 2005.

Alex took a hiatus after touring for Two to care for an ailing family member and

navigate an ever-changing music industry. Band never gave up though,

he pushed forward, writing and producing his first solo album with

the first single, “Tonight”, becoming the theme song for the 2011 World Cup.

Alex has been pushing forward ever since, never giving up on himself or his music

and is currently ready with a new album that is promised to be his most diverse

collection to date.
