The world of music has seen countless talented acts emerge throughout the years. Each of these talented acts has cemented themselves as big names in the music industry due to the ingenuity of their music and their power to captivate an audience and resonate with them on another level. The rising band, The People’s Thieves, is an exceptional alternative, a pop-rock band that is cornering the music industry and positioning itself as a band to watch out for.
Straight out of Salt Lake City, Utah, The People’s Thieves is a band consisting of cousins Jackson and Dallan Turnbull and Brent Richards, who each perform their musical function within the band with such virtuoso and expertise. Jackson and Dallan perform lead vocals and instrumentation while Brent Richards is on the drums.
The band has garnered massive success following the release of their multiple singles. Recently, The People’s Thieves have taken things up a notch by releasing their brand-new album entitled Tunnels. The album is all about showcasing the band’s genuine narrative through powerful storytelling by utilizing masterfully written lyrics coupled with unique instrumentation and rhythms.
The People’s Thieves is well-equipped with a remarkable work ethic and an ambitious intent of producing music that will stand the test of time and land them on the top of global music charts. The band’s music mainly plucks from each of its members’ experience with depression and anxiety, which they hope to share with their audiences through music.
The band is on a mission to help people with their own battles with mental health by using their songs as a vehicle for their own personal expression. The People’s Thieves aims to amplify their unique attributes as a band and wants to share their story with the world. The band initially started out with Jackson and Dallan deciding to form a band together after they wrote their first song at the end of 2014.
However, they were in dire need of a drummer. Things finally fell into place when Jackson spotted Brent Richards on the treadmill at the local gym. Brent just happened to be air-drumming as he was running on the treadmill, which caught Jackson’s musical curiosity. Jackson made an immediate connection with Brent based on a band tattoo, and the rest is history.
The People’s Thieves’ first indie record, Voices, was released in 2017 and peaked at #31 on the iTunes Alternative chart. Since then, the band has been on an absolute tear, with their most recent record Tunnels peaking at #7 on the iTunes Alternative chart and #45 overall. The band has amassed more than 20 million streams across all platforms, with 2.5 million album streams within the first week of release. The band also went on to play a sold-out release show and select dates with viral sensation Bryce Vine.
The People’s Thieves are currently working on new music with the industry’s top producers, and they are aiming to sign a major record deal next year. With countless views and streams under their belt, there is nowhere to go but up for the massively talented alternative band.To learn more about The Peoples Thieves and their new album Tunnels, make sure to visit the band’s official website.
