twenty one pilots Band Biography

Jul 18, 2016

Musical duo twenty one pilots have made their mark on the charts with chill anthemic summer hits. The band is made up of vocalist/keyboardist Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun. Find out more about them in their Kidzworld Biography!

Columbus Kids

twenty one pilots started in Columbus, Ohio. Vocalist/keyboardist Tyler put the group together, and there were originally four members, but as time went on it became clear that they really only needed two to get their songs off the ground. The ban's name is taken from an Arthur Miller play where a man sells plane parts to 21 pilots in the First World War.

The group produced two self-released albums and managed to get signed when they released one of them by performing live in Columbus for free for anyone and everyone - the duo landed a deal with Fueled by Ramen, although more than one company wanted them! They had chart-topping potential written all over them.

The Pilots Take Off!

One thing that sets twenty one pilots apart is their unusual style of pop music, there's lots of debate about whether it's indie, rock, electro or even hip hop, and the truth is, it's a little bit of everything mixed in. After signing their deal they toured with Neon Trees and Walk the Moon. their full length release on their new label was Vessel, followed two years later by Blurryface.  The band managed to capture the attention of listeners with their hit singles "Stressed Out," and the reggae-infused "Ride."

I have read several long books, but one series I quite enjoyed years ago was the Daughters of the Moon series (I have the first six stories in two books) by  Lynne Ewing who in which come to a total of 1,655 pages. Other than that, I really enjoyed Witch World by Christopher Pike with 521 pages, The Help by Kathryn Stockett with 522 pages, and hands down, Grave Mercy by  Robin LaFevers with 566 pages.
