OneRepublic

Good news: OneRepublic only travels the world when it feels right. Their concert in April 2022 in Forest National sat just right. This American pop-rock band nowadays prefers to think in terms of songs rather than albums, an unsurprising adaptation to modernity. The band’s leader, Ryan Tedder, is a grandmaster songwriter. He writes songs to order for Adele, P!nk, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, and he’s been making them for 20 years for the group he founded with his old friend Zach Filkins. ‘Apologize’ (2006) was Tedder’s first major hit. One year later, it became a hit again through Timbaland’s version. OneRepublic’s best-known song is ‘Counting Stars’ (2013) with over 3.5 billion views on YouTube. The new fan favourite is ‘I Ain’t Worried’ (2022), made for the film ‘Top Gun: Maverick’.
