Before hitting the Mixfest stage, OneRepublic hit the Jumbotron with Gregg Daniels, Fast Freddy, and Amanda!
On Friday, we learned about the band’s favorite spot in Boston to get “lobstah”, but it turns out that the city holds an extra special spot in frontman Ryan Tedder‘s heart, as he’s been coming here ever since he could walk.
“My family’s from Mystic, Connecticut, so I’ve been coming to Boston since I was two,” Tedder revealed. “Every summer, we’d go to Connecticut, and then Boston was one of the necessary trips we’d always have to do.”
OneRepublic isn’t the only band Ryan Tedder works with; he’s written for countless artists over the years, most of whom he now has a personal relationship with. “At this point I have a personal relationship with most artists I work with, so I was with the Chainsmokers this week because we traded texts for two months, so it led to us being in the studio together.”
We can’t wait to hear what a OneRepublic/Chainsmokers collaboration sounds like!
