The People’s Thieves Continues to Break Barriers With Their Revolutionary Music That Tackles Mental Health Issues

Over the years, music has continuously influenced human beings through its versatile aspect. Music has been sustaining itself with form and harmony throughout the years by merging vocal and instrumental sounds to effectively create a product of the emotion. Additionally, experts have long proven that music has this particular hold on people that benefits both their physical and mental health. The sweet jolt of memory and morale boost and improved response to anything are just a few of the many gains that music offers unconditionally.

With that said, it’s one thing to listen to it and another to create it. Creating music is an art and is the perfect medium to express one’s emotions. For some individuals, it is their way of giving their life meaning, inspiring others with their work, or promoting a certain kind of social connectedness through the symphony.

For the three talented individuals who make up the band The People’s Thieves, their musical journey intends to focus on the realism of mental health issues that plague many, including themselves. This alternative indie pop-rock band hails from Salt Lake City, Utah, and comprises cousins Jackson and Dallan Turnbull, lead vocals and instrumentals, and drummer Brent Richards. Since its formation, the trio has provided the public with incredible and relatable music while achieving several milestones.

The band’s origin is fascinating in its sweet way, with Jackson and Dallan writing their first song together around 2014. They experimented with other genres before finally cementing their brand to the current sound, an instance that prompted them to seek out a drummer. It did not long before Jackson spotted Brent on the treadmill at the local gym.

“He was air-drumming as he ran, and I noticed that his tattoo was referencing on a band that I also happen to adore – we made an instant connection,” Jackson recalled, adding that it was the perfect timing considering that Brent’s old band had just broken up.

The People’s Thieves has become a household name in the music and entertainment industry from that moment on. The band has since garnered over 11 million views and 20 million streams on YouTube alone and earned the tenth spot in the alternative album genre. However, despite their fast-rising success, it would seem that the trio is showing no signs of stopping, releasing two songs, “Twisted” and “Now That We’re Alone,” that’s expected to break through the alternative music scene, much to the delight of their loyal fanbase. According to music enthusiasts, the release of the band’s second album “Tunnels” on August 20, 2021, marked the birth of one of the industry’s most iconic personalities. Since its launch, it has peaked at #7 on the iTunes Alternative chart, and it ranked 45th on the top albums of the country.

Among their many triumphs was the release of their first-ever recording called “Voices” in 2017. The song was met with great positive reviews, and it later peaked at number 32 on the iTunes Alternative chart, garnering over 3 million streams on Spotify with an average of 500,000 listeners.  

With a heavy focus on mental health issues, including anxiety and depression, the band aspires to share their similar experiences through the music they create so they may help others with their battles. Plenty of opportunities have started materializing for the band, and they’re more than ready to work on new and exciting things with the industry’s top producers.
