Join us as Ezra tells you about his preshow rituals.


In this Preshow Rituals segment, the alternative pop artist, Ezra, reveals what he does before taking the stage. You can check out the rituals below:

My pre-show ritual is first of all just making sure I don't eat anything too heavy. No fried food. On the way to the show I make sure to listen to music I love and that feels nostalgic. There's something about listening to my favorite song from middle school that just gets my adrenaline pumping lol.

Once I get to the greenroom, tea with honey is a go-to of course - sometimes even just a spoonful of plain honey. Helps soothe my throat and calm some nerves. I think it does at least, maybe it's a placebo. And sounds a little crazy but I always look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I'm built for this - sometimes like 50 times lol. It just reminds me of the confidence I have in my work and the excitement I have for it, which makes performing a lot easier.

Regardless, the only real pre-show ritual that I need to succeed is just being mentally present. As long as I'm not thinking or stressing about something else on stage, I'm gonna do my thing.
