We are sharing our recent interview with Steve Nick, an emotionally charged Rock/Country singer,songwriter and philanthropist.
Twist Online : First of all tell us about the start of your music career.
Steve Nick : It all started when I was 6 years old and actually wrote my first song. Although it wasn’t a good one, it had a structure and basic rhythm. It felt like giving birth to something. Haven’t stopped songwriting since then.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Steve Nick : The Steve Nick is definitely my love for music. I would be doing it whether if it paid my bills or not. I have always find pleasure in songwriting. Most times my subconscious is dictating the rhythm and I am just following the beat.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release ?
Steve Nick : My latest released was the album “Coming Soon” in January 2020. This album consists of songs I had written or co written between 2000 and 2005 with my first band called Coming Soon. Of course all tracks have been remastered.
Twist Online : What kind of response you have received from the release?
Steve Nick : My fans love this album because the songs I wrote earlier in my career had more authentic lyrics and no limitations and restrictions in melody. Back then there was no need to write radio-friendly songs and I had more room for experimentation.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, Working in studios or performing on stage?
Steve Nick : These are two different things. When I was younger I totally preferred playing live gigs. The energy and vibes you get from playing live is simply amazing. If feels like bungy jumping and you feel so alive. Now that I have become better at mixing and mastering I enjoy working in studios as well, as creativity can give you a feeling of accomplishment and fulfillment.
Twist Online : What’s the best part of being a music producer?
Steve Nick : This is something I have always wanted to do and have always enjoyed. Of course I am still learning and every day is a new lesson. The best part is the opportunity to experiment and try new things and sound. It is a highly creative work and you learn a lot through collaboration. It is a lot challenging though, as you are only as good as your next hit.
Twist Online : Have you set any goals to achieve?
Steve Nick : I would like to write songs and enjoy songwriting for as long as possible. I have been doing this for as long as I can remember and my intention is not to stop. I also have a strong desire to achieve the goal of having written 10 music albums. The love and support I receive from my fans is the energy that keeps my going. Words cannot express how grateful I feel.
Twist Online : Tell us about your upcoming album “Greek 90’s”?
Steve Nick : It is an album that consists of cover songs. I carefully chose songs that I grew up with and never stopped listening to. Till today these songs are considered all time classics. My contribution is to approach these hits with a Latin vibe and add a different sound and color. The album is going to be released by the end of this summer.
