All Music Guide:
Best known as the lead singer for the rock band Train, Pat Monahan is a longtime performer in his own right. Born in Erie, PA, in 1969, Monahan moved to California in 1993 and began singing in coffeehouses around San Francisco with guitarist Rob Hotchkiss. The duo added members, named themselves Train, and eventually found success with the 2001 album Drops of Jupiter. In 2006, Train decided to take a break from touring and recording and Monahan accepted an offer to write music with British singer/songwriter and producer Guy Chambers for a Tina Turner project. The creative partnership stuck, and soon Monahan was writing music with Chambers and others with an eye on his own album. He released Last of Seven on Sony in 2007.
