Collective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia.
The group took its name (“Collective Soul”) from a phrase in “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand.

Formed in 1992, the original lineup consisted of the Roland brothers, bassist Will Turpin, guitarist Ross Childress, and drummer Shane Evans.

Collective Soul released their Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid album on the independent label Rising Storm Records in 1993.
The band went from obscurity to popularity that year after the album’s lead single “Shine” received regional radio play. Amy Staehling, host of the Georgia Music Show at Georgia State University’s 100,000 watt student radio station in Atlanta, added the song “Shine” to the local rotation. It was an instant listener favorite.
The album was then re-released in 1994 by the major label Atlantic Records; thus, “Shine” became a national hit as it peaked at No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock and No. 4 on the Mainstream Top 40 charts.

The group’s self-titled second album was issued in 1995.
It was certified RIAA triple platinum and logged a 76-week run on the Billboard 200.
Notable singles from Collective Soul included Mainstream Rock and Modern Rock charts No. 1 hits “December”, “Where the River Flows”, and “The World I Know”, along with the No. 2 hit “Gel” and the No. 8 hit “Smashing Young Man”.
During the album’s release, the band was the opener for Van Halen for three months.

Afterwards, they embarked on their own tour as headliners.

The group has released 11 studio albums with additional hits: “Breathe”, “Listen”, “Run”, “Why, Part 2”, “Precious Declaration” and “Heavy”.

They played both the second (1994) and third (1999) Woodstock festivals.
