In this Dream Tour segment, the alternative artist, Traces, lets you know who he would like on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out the feature, after the break.
1. Twenty One Pilots
Tyler and Josh have been such a huge inspiration to me in how they create music, put on the most insane live show I’ve ever seen, and keep such a positive reputation in how they treat people. They seem like the most enjoyable and uniquely gifted people which I would love to experience first hand. Apart from the pure fun of how that tour likely is, they seem like guys that would be great to learn from and get advice on navigating the industry well.
2. Jon Bellion
There are only a few albums that I listen to on the regular just to get through the day. Jon Bellion’s last three albums is that soundtrack for me. His quirky style of lyrics unexpectedly connect me so much and it really just makes a bad day mood turn into hopefulness for tomorrow. As a performer he puts on such a fun show, blending his Pop and Hip Hop sensibilities perfectly. He also is one of those people, like Tyler and Josh, that I have always wanted to sit down with and just ask for life advice.
Banks has been in my top 5 biggest influences since high school so she has to be on this dream tour to make it complete! I think the feature that inspires me the most about her music is the fact that no one else in the world can say what she says, how she says it. She has found such a unique and powerful voice despite leaning more introspective and melancholic on the outside. I just think she’s an iconic trailblazer and would love to share a stage with all her glory haha.
