20 Minutes Until... Chase Sound Check. Featuring... Dermot Kennedy.

Side Note:

Upbeat music plays

On Screen:

Singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy is walking down the street in New York City as yellow cabs pass by.

Male Speaker:

What's up, Dermot? Here we are in New York City. What's your favorites thing to do before a show?

On Screen:

Cut to Dermot walking down the street in New York City. He’s wearing cool yellow sweatpants and a denim top under a puffy black jacket.

Dermot Kennedy:

Go for a run in Central Park. If I can get that done, then I know it's gonna be a good day.

Male Speaker:

When you're on tour, what's one thing that you do to stay energized?

On Screen:

Cut to Dermot inside the concert venue. He’s stretching out his legs and warming up his vocals for the performance.

Dermot Kennedy:

Something I've been doing is yoga, and I'm an absolute beginner and pretty crap at it, but it definitely is an important part of my day now, and it's good 'cause it just means I focus on something other than music for, like, 90 minutes, so it counts for a lot, yeah.

Male Speaker:

Can you give us a yoga move?

Dermot Kennedy:

No! Imagine downward dog in New York.

Song:

♪ All these memories run my mind in slow motion ♪♪

On Screen:

Cut to Dermot walking into his green room. There’s a big brick wall and a black couch. Dermot sits down next to some friends. He picks up his guitar to show it off.

Male Speaker:

All right, so we just arrived in the green room. Any pre-show jitters for you?

Dermot Kennedy:

Uh, no, I'm good. I mean, I get to play songs for people which is my favorite thing to do.

Male Speaker:

Is that your guitar for the performance?

Dermot Kennedy:

Yes, indeed. Only 18 years old.

Male Speaker:

You want to play us a little jam?

Dermot Kennedy:

I don't know.

On Screen:

Cut to Dermot standing up. He puts his guitar down and walks toward the hall.

Side Note:

(soft guitar music)

Male Speaker:

What advice would you give to your 18-year-old self?

Dermot Kennedy

Uh, be patient. in everything that you do. And stay true to what it is you want to be because it will come good eventually and there is no sort of right time for it to happen. It will just happen whenever it does.

Song:

♪ Do you remember when? ♪ ♪ With Rome below us that day ♪♪

Male Speaker:

What's the most crucial part of your pre-show ritual?

Dermot Kennedy

Uh, warming up and whiskey.

Male Speaker:

Last thing you think before you step onstage?

On Screen:

Dermot makes his way toward the stage hallway, ready to walk out for his performance. The hallway lights shine bright in his direction.

Dermot Kennedy:

Um, I think I just check myself and try and make sure I'm about to be as present as possible in the show

and just only live within that night and not worry about anything past that.

Male Speaker:

One emotion you want people to feel at your shows.

Dermot Kennedy:

I think the most powerful thing I want people to feel at my shows is nostalgia. I think everything I sing about is often about how important it is to live well, and so I just want people to think back on their most cherished memories and sort of live in those moments as vividly as they can.

Male Speaker;

All right, Dermot, thanks for hanging with us. Have fun out there.

On Screen:

Dermot walks onstage and performs. The crowd goes wild!
