In this Preshow Rituals segment, the indie pop artist, Rhys, reveals what she does before taking the stage. You can check out the rituals, after the break.
My pre-show rituals aren’t very glamorous or artist-y. On the contrary they’re quite unsophisticated. If i’m extra nervous and i’m playing a show in the evening then my day usually consists of me wondering if maybe I have a fever because I somehow still never connect the fever feeling to nerves when i’m caught up in it. So I usually sit and play some odd card game from the science fiction book store with my band to relax. On my rider I have ”show me your towns best ceaser salad” so my band always has to eat ceasar salad every night and they’re probably malnourished. Poor things. After the salads I continue to force them to do vocal warm ups with me because team spirit. Last but not least I usually get a really bad stomach ache the literal seconds before I get on stage. Oh the glamour! My bandmates are the true heroes of this story!!
