I’ve waited for this moment for so long! OneRepublic currently are in Toronto doing Press for their forthcoming Universal Music Canada Disc Native, due in December. Frontman Ryan Tedder at just age 33 has accomplished what many Singer/Songwriters never will accomplish in a lifetime – cross-platform success in both realms including GRAMMY wins. He has written and produced for Pop Royalty including the likes of Adele, Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Whitney Houston and so many, many more and even has sung his own Hits including instantly-recognizable Top 40 Radio-stapes like Stop and Stare, Good Life, Rocketeer (w/Far East Movement) and of course, Apologize. Tedder‘s Falsetto is sublime and his Vocals emotive.
OneRepublic started their day dark and early arriving 6:00 AM at CityTV‘s Breakfast Television for a two-song Performance before a lucky group of Fans, plus Hosts Brad Smith (The Bachelor Canada) and Dina Pugliese. Click here to see a Clip. The Band’s Rider was rather simple, requesting only bottles of Water and get this, Pizza from Pizza Hut… for Breakfast! Fans waiting outside were in for a shock to see the Boys walk on-foot along Victoria Street following their Performance, no Driver required!
In addition to their upcoming Release, the Band will be hitting the road in the near future, in addition to doing some work for Save the Children. Earnings generated from their latest Single Feel Again went to the Organization, drawing on their experiences working with Children in Malawi and Guatemala.
