Personalities | Collective Soul | Nineties | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1992–present)

Formed in Georgia, USA by Ed Rowland (guitar, vocals), brother Dean Rowland (guitar), Ross Childress (guitar), Will Turpin (bass) and Shane Evans (drums). Helped by the ripple effect of the Seattle grunge movement, their hook-laden 1994 single ‘Shine’ became an American hit securing a willing audience for the band’s intense but melodic rock. Hints, Allegations And Things Best Left Unsaid (1993) and eponymous second album (1995) are the best representations of their sound. The band is still active.
