Who is daughtry dating
Even though some of them didn’t make the album, the process stretched us and took us to new places.
It was the first time I’ve said, ‘It doesn’t sound like us, but I can see us doing that.’” You can hear their risk-taking on such primal, slithering rockers as hard-driving first single “Crawing Back To You,” “Outta My Head,” and “Renegade,” which Entertainment Weekly praised for its “wind-in-your-eyes hook and leather-glove-to-the-sky chorus” calling it “the ideal soundtrack for hitting the highway.” The songs reflect the confident swagger of some of Chris’ favorite bands.
“Howard called me and said he had some ideas for what we needed to do to differentiate this album.
He said, ‘I really think we need to push ourselves.’ He was blown away by the songs we had sent over, which is very hard to do with that guy, so everything was really positive out of the gate.” The result is Break the Spell — a gleaming showcase for Chris’s powerful, emotionally resonant voice and knack for relentless melodic hooks and big, anthemic choruses.
So when it came time to record their third album, Break the Spell, it would have been understandable if Chris and the band — which includes guitarists Josh Steely and Brian Craddock, bassist Josh Paul, and drummer Robin Diaz — decided to stick to what they knew worked. “I didn’t want to make the same record,” Chris says of how he felt before the band hit the studio in March 2011 with long-time producer Howard Benson.
“It’s a love-hate thing—you get sick of being around them, but after two weeks at home you’re ready to get back out on the road and do it again. That’s the key ingredient to keeping a band together—that’s the gasoline, and without it you can’t run.” One thing that has kept the fire burning for Daughtry has been the need to constantly challenge himself creatively.
He has collaborated with artists from Timbaland to Vince Gill to Carlos Santana and took on the role of Judas Iscariot in the 2016 live television performance of comic which was rated one of the top 25 covers of the year by Batman
And that really changed the way I approach the songs in general.” Daughtry and his band have been performing together for over a decade.
“Like anything with a ten year relationship, you know more about each other than you do most of your family,” says Chris Daughtry.
“Let’s be honest, we didn’t set out to do this to play clubs. “You shave off the persona that you thought people expected, stop worrying about what anyone is going to think.
