OneRepublic to rock town in May



U.S. pop rock band OneRepublic will give a live gig at Shenzhen Bay Sports Center in May.

To date, the band has sold approximately over 50 million records worldwide. OneRepublic’s varied style of music has been described by lead vocalist Ryan Tedder: “We’re no respecter of genre. If it’s a good song or a good artist whether rock, pop, indie or hip hop, they’ve probably influenced us on some level. Nothing’s new under the sun. We’re a sum of a bunch of parts.” Specific acts whom OneRepublic have cited as influences include the Beatles, U2, M83 and Prince.

The band first achieved commercial success on MySpace as an unsigned act. In late 2003, after OneRepublic played shows throughout the Los Angeles area, a number of record labels approached the band with interest, but the band ultimately signed with Velvet Hammer, an imprint of Columbia Records.

In 2007, OneRepublic released their debut album “Dreaming Out Loud.” Its lead single “Apologize” was notably remixed by Timbaland, becoming a huge international success, reaching No. 1 in 16 countries and subsequently earning them a Grammy Award nomination. The second single “Stop and Stare” mirrored its predecessor’s success. The album was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The band’s second album “Waking Up” (2009) produced the singles “All the Right Moves,” “Secrets,” “Marchin On” and “Good Life,” with the latter reaching the top 10 of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

OneRepublic’s third album “Native” (2013) became the band’s first top 10 album on the Billboard 200, and highest charting album to date, charting at No. 4. In 2016, OneRepublic released “Oh My My,” their fourth studio album, which featured a number of collaborators including Cassius, Peter Gabriel and Santigold. In 2017, the band released the singles “No Vacancy,” “Truth to Power,” “Stranger Things” with Kygo and “Rich Love.”
