Mainstreet of Sweden started in the late fall of 2001. Since the start the band has been playing frequently around Sweden. During the spring of 2004, Mainstreet went into the studio and recorded their first album. At this time Mainstreet was an unsigned band. They decided to put in their own cash and managed to finish the first album by themselves. During 2005 Mainstreet got in contact with the record label Talking Music and were able to get signed and release their selftitled first album. It came out in May 2005. Mainstreet influences are Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Ryan Adams.
