Trans-Siberian Orchestra Details
Also known as TSO, Trans-Siberian Orchestra is an American rock band that was founded in 1996 in Tampa, FL. The band was created by producer, composer, and lyricist Paul O'Neill at the request of Atlantic Records. Paul, originally from New York, had worked with the likes of Aerosmith, AC/DC, and many other incredible acts prior to creating TSO. Paul decided to bring together Jon Oliva and Al Pitrelli, as well as keyboardist and co-producer Robert Kinkel, to create Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It wasn’t until three years after the band was formed that they started to gain real traction.
The band’s first album was actually a Christmas-themed rock opera entitled “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” In 1998, TSO released “The Christmas Attic” which was a sequel to their first studio album. In 1999, the same year they released “Beethoven's Last Night”, the band toured for the very first time. It was then that TSO really gained a following; a fanbase that would remain with them for many, many years to come.
It wasn’t until 2004 that TSO completed the third and final installment of their Christmas trilogy with the release of “The Lost Christmas Eve.” Each album of theirs is made to tell a distinct story. This album in particular offers a story of loss and redemption, following a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, and more – all on the eve of Christmas in NYC.
Over the years, TSO has released more than six studio albums, one video album, and more. With over 10 million albums sold to date, TSO has found great success as the band has carved their own path to fame.
You may be wondering how the band got its unique name. The band’s name comes from Paul O’Neill’s love of the Trans-Siberian Railway in Siberia. Paul visited Siberia back in the 1980s and admired how the railway ran through Siberia, as if it were the region’s heartbeat. He equated the railway with music, saying that humans can rely on the safety of music to get us through life’s harshest of hardships.
