The Weeknd and Bryson Tiller are easily two of the top names in R&B music right now. So when The Weeknd took to his Soundcloud to drop his own remix of Bryson Tiller’s fan favorite record, ‘Rambo’, Bryson and Abel fans alike were both more than excited. Louisville meets Toronto on this one, and The Weeknd’s vocals and references make ‘Rambo’ and even more addictive than it was before. Expect this one to be on constant repeat for awhile.
Earlier tonight, rising R&B superstar Bryson Tiller brought his sold-out T R A P S O U L tour to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI. To say that Tiller and his 2015 debut studio album (similarly titled, T R A P S O U L) had a big year last year would be an understatement. Ever since Tiller jumped to the top of everyone’s radar with his breakout single ‘Don’t’, the RCA Records artist has hit the ground running. The singer/songwriter received some monumental co-signs from mega-producer Timbaland and the 6 God himself, Drake, and his overnight rise to fame soon landed himself a creative partnership with RCA.
Tonight Milwaukee, Wisconsin got its first chance to see Tiller in person, and we are sure that there will be many more chances to come. Tiller’s momentum isn’t stopping anytime soon and given the fact that Tiller sold out the biggest music venue in a relatively smaller market in Milwaukee, on his first big tour, the rookie’s future in music is more than promising. The only problem for fans however is that if tonight’s performance sold-out in advance, tickets will only be harder to secure next time around, as you could tell that everyone in attendance tonight will surely try their best to make it to any future performances. T R A P S O U L and it’s addictive tracks like ‘Exchange’ and ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ give reason to tonight’s great turnout, but it’s Tiller’s stage presence which will bring those same fans back for tours to come.
The mood of the night was off to a great start after an opening set from the emerging R&B duo, THEY. The exciting duo certainly picked up a bunch of new fans in Milwaukee tonight, after their entertaining performance which consisted largely of performances of tracks from their 2015 project, Nu Religion. While many got their first taste of THEY.’s music tonight, their sound plays well to Tiller’s crowd, and it certainly got the night started on the right foot.
After a brief break to set up for the night’s headlining performance, it was time for Bryson Tiller to hit the stage. Tiller’s performance tonight can be compared a lot to his debut album. Not only do his tour and album share the same name, but the low lighting reflects the mood and feel of the album (which can also be seen on the album’s artwork). And then, just as T R A P S O U L opens with ‘Intro (Difference)’ and transitions into ‘Let Em’ Know’, so did tonight’s performance as the self-dubbed “Pen Griffey” appeared in his signature front-facing ballcap.
But unlike the album, which is very personal throughout, Tiller’s live performances are personal and intimate on a whole different level. Standing on stage, just a few feet from fans who lined up in the frigid Wisconsin weather well before doors opened for the night, Tiller was able to thank his fans first hands and tell stories from his past few years that an album just can’t tell in the same way.
Throughout the night fans sung along every word, from the hit singles to the B-sides. Bryson Tiller’s unmatched stage presence will give you the feels, and will make even his biggest haters have zero reason to question Tiller’s recent success and huge co-signs. Of course, and as expect, the highlights of the night included Tiller’s performances of ‘Don’t’ and ‘Exchange’, but even while singing R&B record, the energy levels never reached a low point.
If you weren’t in attendance tonight, then it is easy to question how else you spent your Saturday night in Milwaukee, WI. But you can certainly take comfort in knowing tonight will not be the last time the emerging superstar will take stage in Milwaukee. Bryson Tiller is here to stay and tonight was just another example.
Minutes ago, producer-songwriter duo THEY. stepped off stage for a sold out crowd in Milwaukee, WI. Performing at The Rave, in support of R&B rising superstar Bryson Tiller’s T R A P S O U L tour, THEY. performed some new music as well as their 2015 EP, Nü Religion, which was well received by many and got some major co-signs from Zane Lowe and Ebro from Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning”. The emerging duo, which consists of Dante and Drew, is not only one of the most exciting R&B acts to watch this year, but they are certainly picking up a ton of new fans while on the road with Tiller.
THEY. has a sound that certainly plays well for the T R A P S O U L tour crowd, and whether it’s natural or learned throughout their previous tour stops, Dante and Drew already have found comfort on the big stage. It’s one thing to produce their addictive records, which have gathered millions of streams on SoundCloud, it’s another thing to perform those same tracks live for a sold-out audience, city-after-city. Tiller has already taken advantage of the voids in the left in the R&B world left by Frank Ocean, and there is more than enough room for THEY. to sit at the table as well. Expect THEY. to continue to make a name for themselves throughout the rest of the tour and soon after it concludes.
Check out our photos from THEY.’s opening performance tonight below, and be sure to check out the remaining dates for Tiller and THEY.’s current tour here.
Chicago is bar none one of the best cities for live music, not only in the U.S. but in the world. Whether you are seeing an intimate performance at the Concord Music Hall, a packed show at some of the city’s most historic venues like the Chicago Theatre or the Aragon Ballroom, one of the cities awesome music festivals, or even a huge production at the United Center, Chicago has something for everyone.
And right now, even in the middle of winter, it’s a great time to catch a show in the Windy City. This month alone fans can check out some performances by rapper GoldLink, R&B’s super emerging artist Bryson Tiller, the talented Carly Rae Jepsen, American soul singer Leon Bridges and many more.
Bryson Tiller @ House of Blues (3/4)
In just a few days Bryson Tiller is bring his T R A P S O U L Tour to Chicago’s House of Blues. With a scheduled opening performance from They., which will surely set the tone for the rest of the night, there is not a better place to be this Friday than Chicago’s Marina City. Unfortunately if you haven’t got your tickets yet, you may be out of luck, as tickets are all sold-out. But for those lucky enough to get tickets on time, you are surely on track to start off this upcoming weekend on a high note.
Carly Rae Jepsen @ The Metro (3/12)
Don’t necessarily expect her to perform her Full House theme cover that picked up a lot of buzz on the internet, but you can certainly expect Carly Rae Jepsen to put on a great show at The Metro in Chicago next week. The ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer and Canada native put out one of the best albums last year, with her latest LP Emotion, and if her live shows are half as good as her new album, then fans will definitely get their money’s worth March 12th. Tickets for this one are all sold-out, so if you missed out, definitely be sure to get your tickets on time when Carly Rae comes back to the Windy City.
GoldLink @ The Chop Shop & 1st Ward (3/9)
GoldLink is easily one of the most exciting rappers to watch in 2016. Last year he introduced himself to many, while opening for Mac Miller on his GO:OD AM Tour. So after picking up a bunch of new fans in 2015, 2016 is definitely the year of GoldLink. He has a huge co-sign from Rick Rubin, his lyrics are more than impressive, and anyone who has seen him live will tell you that he puts on a great show. Tickets for this one are a steal, only $16, so get them now before they are all gone.
Fall Out Boy @ The United Center (3/12)
Fall Out Boy is expected to put on one hell of show next week at the United Center. Accompanied by AWOLNATION and Pvris, expect Pete Wentz and company to blow the roof off at the house that Michael Jordan built. Chicago definitely shows love for Fall Out Boy so tickets have been gone for quite some time, but if you’re one of the many thousands to be in attendance next week, be prepared to have a night that you won’t soon forget.
Leon Bridges @ The Chicago Theatre (3/11)
Leon Bridges had an amazing 2015 and it seems like he has been on tour ever since we first heard his name. His debut album Coming Home was by far one of the best projects of last year, it landed Bridges his first (of many to come) Grammy nomination, his live performances are critically acclaimed, and you can see all the above for yourself at the history Chicago Theatre on March 11th. Tickets for this one as well, have long been sold out, so if you already have your tickets, get ready for a great show.
Charlie Puth & Phoebe Ryan @ Park West (3/22)
Charlie Puth probably had the best year imaginable in 2015. His Wiz Khalifa-assisted smash hit ‘See You Again’ was one of the biggest, if not the biggest, song of 2015, and most importantly it introduced Charlie Puth to the world and showcased his amazing song-writing skills. His new single ‘One Call Away’ is getting a lot of traction on pop radio, and you can see the talented singer-songwriter perform at Lincoln Park’s Park West on March 22nd with the equally talented Phoebe Ryan. Expect Puth to perform a number of tracks from his 2016 debut album, Nine Track Mind, and Ryan to perform a number of her fan favorites, including her new single ‘Chronic’. Tickets are all sold out, so if you didn’t get yours in time, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep a close eye on Puth, as he is easily one of the most exciting pop artists to watch this year.
Hermitude @ The Chop Shop & 1st Ward (3/10)
Following their sold-out headlining tour last fall, Australian hip-hop duo Hermitude are returning to the Windy City for a headlining show at The Chop Shop & 1st Ward. On March 10th fans are sure to hear a number of cuts from the duo’s latest LP, Dark Night Sweet Light, which was well received by many. The album featured the likes of Big K.R.I.T., Chuck Inglish, Estelle, Pell and more. And even if you can’t make it to the Chop Shop this month, be sure to make the trip down to Manchester, TN to see the guys perform at Bonnaroo this year! Get your tickets for Hermitude’s forthcoming Chicago show before they are all sold out, here.
[UPDATE: The remaining tour dates have now been announced, see below!]
Bryson Tiller had an amazing 2015, and now going into the new year, Tiller is already the new face of R&B. His critically acclaimed album, Trapsoul (styled “T R A P S O U L”) left everyone impressed, and come 2016 Tiller will be hitting the road on a headlining tour in support of his debut LP. While Tiller himself has yet to announce the tour, we have already caught wind of a few dates on what will be titled as the “T R A P S O U L Tour“. If the Louisville rapper’s live shows are half as good as his recordings, this won’t be a tour to miss!
Check out some of the tour dates below, certainly with more to be announced soon!
Following an arguably weak year for albums, 2015 has seen a lot of great projects and many unexpected ones as well. While this year we saw the highly anticipated return of Adele, patient fans are still awaiting Frank Ocean’s sophomore album and Kanye West’s Swish. But where Frank and Kanye have left music fans hanging, new comers like Bryson Tiller, Alessia Cara, GoldLink, BOOTS, Halsey and more have put out some great albums to help kick off their relatively young careers. 2015 though was also a great year for some heavyweights, of course we’re referring to artists like Drake, Future, Kendrick Lamar and even pop superstars like One Direction and Justin Bieber. In just one day, November 13th, the music world saw more great releases than it did in a span of months in 2014. Cheers to hoping 2016 delivers as well as 2015 did!
Singer-songwriter Bryson Tiller is one of the hardest working artists to emerge in 2015, and he is showing no signs of stopping come next year. With huge co-signs from Drake and Timbaland, Bryson had a number of labels to choose from and eventually found home with RCA Records through a creative partnership. And now to follow up his critically acclaimed and debut project, Trap Soul, Tiller has released a new track, titled ‘Self Righteous’. With production from Ayo and vocals from the Louisville singer, ‘Self Righteous’ is another great record from Tiller and definitely a must listen.
