Metro Station is a powerpop band for teens and young adults. It has formed in Los Angeles, California. They signed to Columbia/Red Ink Records and are perhaps best known for their top-ten hit ?Shake It?.
The band consists of four members, Mason Musso (vocals, guitar), Trace Cyrus (guitar, vocals), Blake Healy (keyboards, synthesizer), and Anthony Improgo (percussion).
Metro Station was started by Musso and Cyrus in 2006. Since Musso?s brother, Mitchel, and Cyrus?s sister, Miley, are on Hannah Montana, their mothers introduced them to each other on the set of Hannah Montana.
Sharing musical interests, they decided to form a band. Shortly thereafter, Cyrus recruited Blake Healy from Synthetic Joy as a keyboardist, synthesist, and bassist. Trace remained the singer and the lead guitarist.
Mason is the main singer and guitarist, along with Trace. He sang the track ?Seventeen Forever?, which they released on their MySpace Music website. The track gained the attention of percussionist Anthony Improgo, who was soon added as the band?s drummer.
Their popularity on MySpace Music grew, topping the MySpace Music Unsigned Band?s charts. An intern in Columbia Records? Walking Eye program discovered the band while looking through the MySpace Music charts, and they were signed shortly thereafter.
In the July 2007 issue of music magazine Alternative Press, Metro Station was listed as one of the ?22 Best Underground Bands?. Metro Station released their self-titled debut studio album in September, the album had two singles released, ?Kelsey? and ?Control? both failed to chart, although with higher sales of the album both became more popular.
