Imagine Success, Imagine Dragons
If you have listened to the radio at all within the last year, all I have to do is say one word and an entire song comes to mind: radioactive. Yes, 2013 and 2014 seem to be breakout years for Imagine Dragons, and the band's popularity is definitely skyrocketing. While the band's "official" origin is Las Vegas, did you know that they actually formed and met in Provo? The lead singer, Dan Reynolds, met Andrew Tolman while they were both attending Brigham Young University. Tolman was the drummer back then in 2009, and Daniel Platzman continues drumming for the band to this day.
The band also has strong cultural ties to Provo. Current members Dan Reynolds and Wayne Sermon are both members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or Mormons. Considering that over 85% of Provo's population are members of the LDS church as well, there is no doubt a strong following here. Do you live in Provo? Do you remember seeing Imagine Dragons when they were first starting out? We'd love to hear your stories below!
