Another Hit For OneRepublic

Radio hit-makers, OneRepublic, led by wunderkind songwriter/producer, Ryan Tedder, performed an able version of current hit “Good Life” here from their latest album, Waking Up, on Regis & Kelly yesterday. Fans of Tedder and company got a concise dose of the multi-influence pop machine’s latest Top 5 pop hit.

“Good Life” is the fourth and final single from Waking Up, an album that OneRepublic and their label Interscope have relentlessly promoted since it’s release in 2009. The song distinguished by a ever-so-slight nod to Caribbean rhythms, is inching towards the top of the pop charts and is certainly testament to OneRepublic’s appeal and persistence.

While fronting OneRepublic, Tedder has produced and written songs for pop icons Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, Jordin Sparks, Adele and many, many others. OneRepublic’s “Apologize” and Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love”, both written by Tedder, are two of the most played songs in radio history. Raised  by a family of missionaries and pastors, Tedder’s childhood musical inclinations were driven like that of an Olympic gymnast. At 3 he was taught to play piano via the Suzuki method. On Regis & Kathy he said he was put in a closet by his parents to practice drums at the age of 12.

With all the writing and producing for other artists Tedder is finally getting around to recording a new, third album with OneRepublic. Look for it in early 2012.
