Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons Knows Life is Fragile and Fleeting

Dan Reynolds, frontman for the uber-successful band Imagine Dragons, is fully aware that time is fleeting. While some may hang their proverbial hats on the fact they’ve sold tens of millions of albums, filled venues like Madison Square Garden in New York City, or worked with big names like Kendrick Lamar and Rick Rubin, Reynolds instead keeps his eyes and mind looking largely forward.

Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds, says, like most artists he considers himself an empath, someone who is sensitive to and in touch with the needs of others. As an artist/empath these are incredibly trying times. Whether it's in Europe, where the band is currently on tour and playing to refugees displaced by Russia's attack on Ukraine, or here in the band's native States, where the recent SCOTUS rulings threaten to tear the country apart at its core this Fourth of July weekend, the world is divided and on edge.

It’s funny to me now but the first time I met Dan Reynolds I was, for lack of a better term, sizing him up. There are a lot of people who talk about kindness and love who are more interested in being divisive. There is a place for anger. I firmly believe in that. But if we are truly interested in building bridges and saving lives, a platform of positivity, hope, compassion, and acceptance is necessary. Dan embodies those qualities.
