I’ve been a huge fan of OneRepublic for years now. I’ve even claimed that ‘Native’ is my favorite album of all time — yes, even above my all-time favorite Justin Timberlake‘s albums. They’re musical geniuses no matter how you break it down. I got to see them live once when they co-headlined with The Script a few years ago and it was one of my favorite shows I’ve been to. Now I’m just waiting for them to come down to Miami again!
When I saw that a session from this documentary series with OneRepublic would be available on Netflix, I had to jump at the chance to watch it because why the heck wouldn’t I??
SYNOPSIS: Once In A Lifetime Sessions is an original and unique music documentary series giving viewers the chance to get up close and personal with some of today’s most celebrated music icons. Filmed on location at some of the greatest studios around the world, the Sessions highlight the craftsmanship, artistic depth, incredible skill and talent of the artists whilst also showcasing their catalogue. Each episode is dedicated to a single artist or group and features both an intimate live performance and a vinyl recording session. These are woven together with exclusive interview footage and a masterclass exploring the stories behind some of the most memorable songs of all time. Episodes include OneRepublic, Kasabian, George Ezra, Snow Patrol, TLC, Moby, Noel Gallagher and Nile Rodgers. Now streaming on US Netflix.
In all honesty, I’d never heard of this series before this particular session, but I love shows like this. I used to love watching MAKING THE VIDEO and the DIARY series on MTV back in the day (I’m in my 30’s, don’t attack me lol). As a lover of music and entertainment, I loved being able to see the behind-the-scenes of it all. How things began as an idea and how that idea was actually put together for an artist. That’s what really fascinated me. Getting to know your favorite artists behind the music. This series reminds me of that. You get to learn a little more about OneRepublic from their own mouths and you also get to watch a few live performances of them on stage.
I highly recommend check out this episode and also going back and watching any others that you can find! Personally, I’m hooked!
