If you haven’t had a chance to see Dan + Shay live, this is one tour you don’t want to miss.  They are one of our favorite artists to see live because of how passionate they are on stage.  You can see how much they absolutely love what they are doing, and they’re having fun, too.  And the show is one big singalong – everyone in the audience knows the words.  And the harmony.  Watch their performance of “Partner and Crime” from Highline Ballroom in NYC on their first headlining tour!

Dan + Shay’s Where It All Began Tour Hits NYC & Philly

Country duo Dan + Shay just wrapped up their first headlining tour, which included a sold-out show at NYC’s Highline Ballroom.  That’s right – a sold out country show in Chelsea.  We’ve been counting down the days to this show since we first found out about it in May, and they did not disappoint.  We can’t say enough good things about them – not only are they talented musicians and performers, they are also extremely kind and generous to their fans.  Luckily we planned to see them again in Philly the next night, and they were just as amazing the second time around!

The “Where It All Began” tour is in support of their record breaking debut album of the same name, one of our favorites of the year.  Dan + Shay played every song off the album, and the enthusiastic crowd sang along to every word. (You know when some artists are like “now you sing!” and it’s just incoherent mumbling / crickets?  Yeah, that doesn’t happen at a Dan + Shay concert.)  They also let us know that they’ve been working on new music, and played a more recent track, “Partner In Crime.” They did a special unplugged version of “Can’t Say No,” sitting on the edge of the stage like one big campfire singalong.  

 

 

Their set also included covers of Def Leopard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” 5SOS “She Looks So Perfect,” and Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite,” proving that they’re just as comfortable playing rock, pop-punk, even hip-hop, as they are country. We’re sure they would have found success in any genre they chose. (Although we’re sure glad they chose country!) 

 

Dan + Shay are one of a few artists that really leave it all on the stage, night after night.  Shay Mooney has such an incredible voice and range, and his harmonies with Dan Smyers repeatedly gave us chills. One of the things that struck us the most is that you can feel how much they truly love being on stage and performing.  Their genuine excitement and passion is infectious, spreading through the entire crowd.   You can see how much it means to them to have people singing along to their songs, even to their hit first single “19 You + Me,” it’s still the greatest feeling in the world.

Opening act Cam is definitely one to watch – her fun set got the crowd pumped up, as she sang about everything from Fireball Whisky to real country style ( after all, “Country Ain’t Never Been Pretty!”)  One of our favorite songs was one she described as what she sings to herself in the mirror to pump herself up – “Go Get ‘Em, Cam.”

Dan + Shay “Show You Off” In New Music Video

When it comes to interacting with fans, Dan + Shay are one of the best artists out there.  So when it came time to release the video for their new single, “Show You Off,” they asked their fans to tweet, tumblr and share the news in order to unlock it.  While they originally had a goal of 2 days, their loyal fans unlocked the video in around an hour!  Check it out below!

The video shows off their fans and what life is like on the road  for the busy duo, who have been on tour with Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton this year.  They even feature fans speaking about what make Dan + Shay so special to them.  (We totally agree with all of you!)  From staying hours after every show doing signings, to constant interaction on Twitter, the guys totally get that it’s the little things that can make a fan’s day.

Dan + Shay are going on their first headlining tour this fall across the US, including a stop in NYC!  The Where It All Began Tour is on sale now!  And if you haven’t gotten a copy of our favorite album of the year, what are you waiting for?   Get “Where It All Began” on iTunes now!

They’ll also be stopping by Live with Kelly and Michael on Thursday, July 31st.  Make sure you tune in!  (Or stop by the studio in NYC and say hello!)

The Friday Five: Memorial Day Playlist

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  We’re sure many of you (including us) are traveling for the long weekend, so here is our playlist of the songs we plan to drive around blasting to celebrate the official start of summer.

1.  Austin Mahone – “Next To You”
Austin just released this track from his debut album “The Secret,” out next week!  And we’ve been listening to it nonstop. (Literally like 10 times in a row).   He’s said that his album was influenced by the boy bands of the 90s, and it’s evident in this track.  We can’t wait to see what moves Austin the one-man boy band has planned for this one!

2. Dan + Shay – “Sway”
We heard this unreleased track at the Dan + Shay + You acoustic session, and found ourselves instantly swaying and singing along.   Dan and Shay said this song, which they played here for the first time ever, would likely be on their next album.  Lucky for you (and us) we caught it on video!

3.  The Vamps – “Somebody To You”
As soon as we heard this song, we had a feeling it would be The Vamps’ next single.  And we were right!  What we weren’t expecting is for Demi Lovato to be featured on the track.  They’ve teamed up for what’s sure to be a mega-hit for the British band.  Hopefully all the radio play this song is getting will lead to the long awaited US release date for The Vamps album!

4. Hunter Hayes – “Tattoo”
We cannot say enough good things about Hunter Hayes.  Not only is he extremely talented (he can play over 30 instruments) he’s also kind and humble.  We love this track off of his new album, “Storyline,” which is likely to be the second single off the album.  This song will stick with you,  even the first time you hear it…just like a tattoo!

5. AJR – “After Hours”
Their first single “I’m Ready,” is on track to be a big hit this summer, but we love all of AJR’s songs, especially this track off of their “I’m Ready EP.”  It’s fun, catchy, and has a horn section.  We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: AJR’s unique sound just makes us excited about music.  We can’t wait for their debut album due out later this summer!

 

The Friday Five: Songs of the Summer

It’s only the second day of May, but after a brutal winter in NYC we’ve been dreaming of summer for weeks!  We can’t wait for outdoor concerts and trips to the beach, or in the event of Summer Jam and any shows at Nikon Jones Beach Theater – both!    Here are the songs we are loving right now, our soundtrack to the Summer of 2014.   All of these artists are on tour this summer, so check them out!

1.  Dan + Shay –  “Show You Off
The country duo’s debut album is the perfect summer soundtrack.  It makes us want to drive around with the windows down, sipping sweet tea with the wind blowing in our hair.  “Show You Off,” Dan+Shay’s second single, is catchy and refreshing like a cool drink of water in the summer, better than the other side of the pillow.  Check out all of their upcoming tour dates!

2. AJR –  “I’m Ready
We’ve had “I’m Ready” on repeat for months now, but AJR’s single is climbing the charts and is sure to be one of the biggest hits of the summer!  Their debut album, which brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met wrote, produced and recorded in their living room, is expected to be released late Summer.   You can catch them on tour at several radio festivals and opening for Lindsey Stirling this summer!  Watch our interview  with AJR here!

3. Austin Mahone – “Till I Find You
This is possibly the best summer ever for Mahomies!  Austin’s debut album, “The Secret,” is being released May 27th, followed by appearances at Summer Jam and a headlining tour with The Vamps!  He’ll also help kick off the Today Show Toyota Summer Concert Series on Memorial Day!

4. Cody Simpson – “Surfboard
There are some artists we always associate with summer, and Cody is one of them!  We first saw him opening for Big Time Rush at Jones Beach on their 2012 tour.  His laid back surfer vibe is perfect for his new single, “Surfboard.”  He’ll be at Summer Jam and is heading out on a European tour shortly after.  Stay tuned for the dates!

5. Hunter Hayes – “You Think You Know Somebody
We’re constantly impressed by the multi-talented Hunter Hayes.  In case you’re still inclined to refer to him as “the country Justin Bieber,” just check out his guitar solos in this live performance of “You Think You Know Somebody!”   He is by far one of our favorite acts to see live, and we could not be more excited for his new album, “Storyline,” out next week!  If you have the opportunity to see him live, go!  He takes every song to the next level. P.S. Hunter if you’re reading this, play a show in NYC – we love country, too!

Dan + Shay’s Next Single: “Show You Off!”

Following the huge success of their first single, “19 You + Me,” which recently went gold, country duo Dan + Shay revealed that their next single to hit country radio will be “Show You Off!”  The track is off their debut album, “Where It All Began,” which has been hanging out at the top of the charts since it was released earlier this month.  We love the support we’ve seen for Dan + Shay from artists of all genres – they’re taking over the music world and we can see why!  They make us excited about music, and we just want to “show them off” too.

Check out an acoustic performance of “Show You Off,” from their “Warehouse Sessions” series.
