HERO magazine goes fan mode for its latest cover story. The British magazine goes on tour with singer Shawn Mendes. The Canadian singer links up with photographer Fabien Kruszelnicki for the candid feature. Here, Kruszelnicki follows Mendes from the stage to his tour bus.
Discussing his tour with HERO, Mendes shares, “You know how your parents say treat people the way you want to be treated? I perform my show how I’d like to see one.” Mendes continues, “So that’s kind of how I look at it, when I go to a show I would feel overwhelmed with production and dancers, and it would be too much for me to see, I love to see an artist when they’re just singing, I get chills when I see someone performing.”
Shawn Mendes on His Album Illuminate
Talking about his new album, Illiuminate, Mendes explains, “In the second album a lot of the songs are a little more produced, that’s because I’ve had a lot of creative control and been like, ‘This is what I want to do, these are the kind of movements I want to make…'”
The 18-year-old singer adds, “You just want to have more involvement with something that you put your heart into. So with this new album, I made sure I was writing every single song, was there for the production on every single song, I didn’t want it to be released without me being 100% sure about it.” Read more on Hero-Magazine.com.
