Formed in 2002 by frontman Ryan Tedder and lead guitarist Zach Filkins, OneRepublic exploded onto the music scene with the release of their debut single, “Apologize,” in 2006—an international sensation that earned the band a Grammy nomination. OneRepublic has since released two studio albums and the group continues to record, tour and evolve their unique blend of pop and rock.

In this all-new episode of Guitar Center Sessions on DIRECTV, Nic Harcourt sits down with the guys to talk about how the band got started, their creative process, and just how OneRepublic define success. Plus, watch exclusive performances from their set at the world-famous Guitar Center Hollywood-featuring material from the band’s new album, Native, available now on iTunes.
