In this Preshow Rituals segment, the pop artist, Robert Grace, reveals what he does before taking the stage. You can check out the rituals, after the break.
So I have this playlist on Spotify that I made with all my favourite hype songs to get me all hyped up before I go on stage. Including ‘Bad Girls Don’t Cry’ by The Night Game, ‘Purple Hat’ by Sofi Tukker, ‘Still Into You’ by Paramore & MANY more.
I also like to eat something kind of spicy, usually sweet chili sauce with some chips. Helps warm up my vocal cords. As well as that, I use these throat lozenges called Vocal Zone to do the same thing. Obviously, I do my vocal warm-ups too but these extra things definitely make a difference for me anyway.
Finally just before we go on stage, I jump around a little bit to loosen up then myself & the band put our hands in together and shout some random word that changes for every gig. For the last show, we all shouted “SAUSAGES”. We’re a bit of an odd bunch!!
