OneRepublic is an American pop rock band formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 2002. The band currently has Ryan Tedder in lead vocals, piano, Zach Filkins in lead guitar, violin, Drew Brown in rhythm guitar, Brent Kutzle in bass, cello, Eddie Fisher in drums, and Brian Willett in keyboards, percussion, and violin.

OneRepublic gained commercial success on Myspace in 2002. After performing in Los Angeles, the band signed with Columbia Records' Velvet Hammer imprint. They recorded their first album with producer Greg Wells in 2005, which was scheduled for release in 2006. However, Columbia dropped the group two months before the album's release. The lead single, Apologize, reached number one on the Myspace charts on April 30, 2006.

In 2007, OneRepublic released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud. Its lead single, Apologize, was remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, reaching number one in sixteen countries and 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 singles All the Right Moves, Secrets, Marchin On, and Good Life, with the last reaching the top ten of the US Billboard Hot 100.
