In this Preshow Rituals segment, the electro pop artist, Flynn, reveals what he does before taking the stage. You can check out the story, after the break.
So usually I wake up, pack a bag, eat something relatively healthy and then wait for my band to pick me up. My drummer Brian usually drives us, he’s the reliable one that is always on time and keeps us in check. We get on the road, take multiple pitstops for coffee and chicken fillet rolls (Irish thing) and make our way to the venue.
I like to stick with my band, I’ve known the guys all my life so we’re all good mates and that’s comforting. It takes my mind off the gig and eases any nerves I may have! We usually grab some food when we get to the venue and then just chill really! 30 mins before the gig I usually distance myself from everyone else and do some vocal warm ups. I try to avoid beer because I have a fear of getting hiccups on stage so I avoid anything fizzy! (Larger, Fizzy drinks etc)
Then it’s game on really, lots of energy, lots of loud tunes in the green room! I usually listen to some of my favourite hip hop records to get me in the mood!
