As long as I feel like I know what the first couple songs are, it kind of helps. It doesn't really matter

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

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

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.

Can you give us a yoga move?

No! Imagine downward dog in New York.

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.
