Luckily for us, he shared with us some of his favorite songs to listen to while on tour. It’s a great list, with some flashbacks and personal stories mixed in. Check them out below!
“Jerk It Out” – Caesars
When I was maybe 12, my family took a road trip to New Mexico. we had a cross-country ski camp there and that song was played at least 30 times. I was addicted to the tempo and the upbeat energy it gave me. whenever I’m on a trip I tend to put this song on.
“What I Did” – Linkin Park
before I ever did a show.. the “Guitar Hero” video game was a big addiction. this song in particular, I would absolutely rip it on my 5 color note guitar. I think little Gavin would be proud to know he’s on tour.
“Black Dog” – Arlo Parks
I love Arlo and this song always puts me in the same space. fun to drive and the lyrics are really moving.
“Going to California” – Led Zeppelin
the drive from Portland to San Francisco takes around 9+ hours with beautiful roads and stunning vistas. It just felt right to add this gem.
“Dare4distance” – Never Scream Never
bare. great writing. I love this song and takes me back to my childhood. my sister put me on Never Shout Never when I was 13.
“Dare You Move” – Switchfoot
I grew up in the church and Switchfoot was about as pissed off as I was in 2004. A lot of memories get mixed up in this band and I love the space they create in their music.
“On the Sea” – Beach House
one of my best friends showed me beach house across bodega bay in northern california when i was 16 or 17. I remember being on the coast and this song was playing specifically. on my body arose.
“Hollywood” – Kota the friend
I love his flow and his message. introspective reflection and real soft melodies.
“Heather” – Conan Gray
playing this track on tour and loved shouting the lyrics out with the crowd every night.
“Fall for You” – Used Serenade
it’s the first song I’ve ever sung for someone. I learned piano chords and my sister called a friend of hers and had me sing through the line. I don’t know why, but it’s an important memory for me. this tour, I’m playing the piano at concerts for the first time and it reminded me of this song.
