Lifehouse was formed in Los Angeles by singer/songwriter/guitarist Jason Wade, bassist Bryce Soderberg and drummer Rick Woolstenhulme Jr. as Blyss in 1999, attracting the attention of producer Jude Cole and eventually, veteran A&R executive Michael Ostin, who signed the band to DreamWorks for their 2000 debut, No Name Face, which produced “Hanging by a Moment,” a #1 Modern Rock hit which crossed over to become Top 40’s Most Played Song, peaking at #2 on the Hot 100.
Since 2000, Lifehouse have released seven albums that have cumulatively sold 15 million around the world.
“Hanging by a Moment,” (#2 Hot 100, #2 Pop Songs), “Sick Cycle Carousel,” “Breathing” and “Everything” all come from the band’s debut album No Name Face, which peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200, and has since gone on to sell more than four million copies worldwide, almost three million in the U.S.
“Spin” and “Take Me Away” are taken from the band’s second album, 2002’s Stanley Climbfall, while the eponymous 2005 album produced the dual chart-topping Top 5 smash ballad “You and Me” (#1 at both Adult Top 40 and Adult Contemporary, #5 Hot 100, #4 Top 40, #4 Pop Songs) and “Blind.” The album itself debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and was eventually certified platinum.
Who We Are, released in 2007, contributes the multi-format hits “First Time” (#3 Adult Top 40, #17 Adult Contemporary, #16 Mainstream Top 40), “Whatever It Takes” (#3 Adult Top 40, #10 Adult Contemporary), and the radio version of “Broken” (#7 Adult Top 40). Their collaboration with Kevin Rudolf, “Halfway Gone” (#2 Adult Top 40, #12 Adult Contemporary,) “Falling In,” “All In” (#6 Adult Top 40), “From Where You Are” and “It Is What It Is” are all from the band’s fifth studio album, Smoke & Mirrors, originally released in 2010.
“Between the Raindrops,” their collaboration with British singer Natasha Bedingfield, was the lead single from their sixth studio album, 2012’s Almeria, scoring on three separate Billboard charts (#21 Adult Pop Songs, #27 Adult Alternative Songs, #79 Hot 100). The compilation’s final track, “Hurricane,” is from the band’s 2015 indie Ironworks Music release, Out of the Wasteland, which went to #30 on the Hot Adult chart and #31 at Adult Pop Songs.
Lifehouse’s music has always been radio-friendly, but the band’s success is as much for lead singer/guitarist Jason Wade’s “sonorous” vocals and spiritual songwriting as it is for the band’s well-honed cohesion as performers. As he once explained about his creative process: “I’m comfortable being myself. The songs I’ve written that have connected to the most people have occurred when I’m not worrying about how everyone will react. I’m writing from an honest place, alone in my room not thinking about who’s going to hear it, what they’re going to think or how they’re going to interpret it. The lyrics can’t be contrived. They have to hit you right in the heart.” Lifehouse: Greatest Hits does just that.

Since their debut album No Name Face, released in 2001, Lifehouse has sold over 15 million records worldwide and played to sold-out shows around the globe throughout their 17-year career. Comprised of Jason Wade (lead vocals, guitar), Bryce Soderberg (bass, vocals) and Ricky Woolstenhulme Jr. (drums, percussion), Lifehouse is an American rock band like no other. With songs in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, Alternative, Adult Top 40, Mainstream Top 40, Adult Contemporary and Adult Pop charts, Lifehouse has proven their versatility and longevity.
Their staying power is due in large part to Jason Wade’s signature voice and heartfelt songwriting talents, as well as his long-time partnership with co-writer, co-producer Jude Cole. Known for their infectious, upbeat hit songs “Hanging by a Moment,” “First Time,” “Halfway Gone,” and “Hurricane,” as well as the emotionally charged ballads “You and Me,” “Broken,” and “Whatever It Takes,” Lifehouse has spanned the radio dial for well over a decade.
But Lifehouse won’t be pigeonholed as a radio band. High-energy rock performances and intimate acoustic moments are to be expected from a Lifehouse set. Having toured the world extensively, they have amassed a fiercely loyal fanbase in the States, Europe, Australia, South East Asia and South America.
