Pop duo Savage Garden enjoyed overnight success in 1997 when their song Truly Madly Deeply was catapulted to the top of the charts. The pair formed in Brisbane, when multi-instrumentalist Daniel Jones placed an ad in a local newspaper seeking a vocalist. Darren Hayes was the only respondent, and the two began working together. Within a year they had secured a manager and negotiated a recording contract. The guys went their separate ways in 2001, after selling over 20 million copies of the two albums they produced.
