needed a new guitarist after former band member Marcos Curiel left the band in a bitter controversy. Truby was available at the time to assist them by playing guitar as a temporary replacement to record their hit single, "Sleeping Awake," and would become a full-time member soon afterward. The band released their first album with Truby (Payable on Death) in November 2004, which was the first time the band discarded their rapcore style, which in turn faced much controversy. It went on to sell just over one million records worldwide. The second album the band released with Truby was Testify, which was released early 2006. Truby typically plays Gibson Les Paul Standards live and in the studio.
On his solo acoustic album entitled String Theory (2004), however, Truby recorded 24 instrumental tracks, using a total of 19 different acoustic guitars. His main influences in music are Coldplay, AC/DC, and the legendary guitarist Phil Keaggy. From The Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jason_Truby Read more on Last.fm.
