Plain White T's Band Biography

With 'Hey There Delilah' The Plain White T's have been getting some serious airplay. Kidzworld takes a closer look at the band.

Basement Beginnings

The Plain White T's started in a basement in Chicago in 1997. Tom Higgenson and his high school pal Dave Tirio played around with cover songs before they started to write their own, and soon they formed a band and started playing local gigs. They've had a couple members come and go over time, but the present day line-up is here to stay.

Fan Support

As the T's started getting a larger fan base in North America and overseas, they began to tour. On a recent tour, the band's trailer was burglarized and all of their equipment was stolen. When fans found out, they sent in letters, gifts, and cash to help their fave band get back on its feet.

Fame Game

After being dropped by their previous label, The Plain White T's were signed by Hollywood Records and released Every Second Counts. Fueled by athe song Hey There Delilah, the album peaked at #10 on the Billboard charts and the song itself reached number one in the USA, Germany and Canada.
