This Thursday, we’re throwing it back to some of our cover stars and feature artists from our March issues of the past few years. While the magazine has evolved through different staff members, formatting, and news, one thing remains constant: the effort to bring you beyond the stage to some of your favorite artists.
Our March 2015 magazine issue might have only been the third-ever Beyond the Stage publication, but it featured some of our favorite artists who have only gained popularity since. Our first feature artist was with American rock band, PVRIS, who have since released their second album, All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell, and are currently on tour throughout North America and Europe until July. Another interview was with band of brothers AJR after the release of their debut album, Living Room. More recently, the indie pop group released their album, The Click, and we also happened to catch them on their sold-out show in Dallas for their What Everyone’s Thinking Tour last summer. One of our favorite artists was cover-star Lights, known for her gold-certified albums The Listening and Siberia. Last year, she released her newest album, Skin & Earth, as well as a comic book series written and designed by Lights herself. Read the full issue here:
A year later, BTS released the March 2016 issue featuring Nathan Sykes, R5, Greyson Chance, and more. At the time, R5 was out on their Sometime Last Night tour, but more recently the group has been in the spotlight for changing all their social media accounts to The Driver Era. While some fans were rightfully freaking out, this is not the end! R5 is now The Driver Era, a brand new era with Ross and Rocky Lynch primarily writing and performing most of the tracks. The duo is planning to drop their debut single, “Preacher Man” on March 16, so stay tuned! Another featured artist was singer-songwriter Ron Pope. Most famously known for his single, “A Drop in the Ocean,” in 2007, Pope’s music career is still very much alive. Last summer, he released his album Work, and in January of this year he dropped a 7-track EP titled Worktapes.
