OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder has become a big name on the pop music scene over the past couple of years. Not only has he written, sung and produced most of his band OneRepublic’s music, he has also written and produced songs by Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, Béyonce, Adam Lambert, B.o.B., Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, and The Wanted. That is quite a list. What you can glean from his band and that list is that the man can write a killer hook. His songs are usually instantly catchy and are downloaded tons. All the other requirements for a catchy pop song were there with the flowing melodies and inspirational, but easy to sing choruses. The songs walk that likeable line in between pop and dance.The hooks are addictive and the vocals anthemic.
Expect them to perform their hits like “Stop and Stare”, “Apologize”, “Counting Stars”, and “Love Runs Out”.
