O.A.R. first began to develop their unique sound in drummer Chris Culoss basement while in high school in Rockville, Maryland. The band released their first album, The Wanderer, prior to graduating and stayed together throughout college with all members attending The Ohio State University. Recording two additional albums before leaving Columbus, the band began pursuing their musical dreams full time in the summer of 2001. By the end of 2008, the band had released six studio albums and three live double disc CDs.
To date, O.A.R. has sold more than 1.8 Million albums and 1.7 Million concert tickets, including two sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. With the release of their sixth studio album, All Sides, O.A.R. reached several career milestones. The album was their highest debut to date, landing at #13 on the Billboard 200, and the album's first single, Shattered, was the band's first single to be certified Platinum by the RIAA and spent fifteen weeks on VH1s Top 20 Countdown. O.A.R. continues to tour throughout the country and they are currently finishing up the recording of their seventh studio album. For more information about O.A.R., go to www.ofarevolution.com.
