I have listened to your new single “Back To You” over and over and it really never gets old. What inspired you to write this new track?
JMN: Awh, thanks! It’s about having to leave a place I love, and someone really important to me behind, not because I wanted to.. but because I had to. And trying my best to get back to that place and to them.
Has music played a big part in your life since you were younger? I know for me, it’s been a part of me since as long as I can remember!
JMN: Music has definitely been a huge part of my life, It has so many ties to memories growing up and has helped me so much through the years. Without music, I wouldn’t know what to do, it’s one of the most important parts of my day!
Are there any other artists you would say inspire the sound and vibe of your music?
JMN: Honestly, no, not at all! I would love to give a list of my favourite artists and say that they have an influence on my music.. but all I can say is they motivate me / give me the push I need for the day!
What is your go-to song to belt in your car or scream at the top of your lungs when you’re home alone?
JMN: That is a hard one… I can never choose just 1 song or 1 artist. I listen to many different genres, so it really just depends on the kind of mood I’m in or the day I’m having. I would say currently I’m having “Issue- IZKO” on repeat. But this also changes everyday or every other day for me!
I’m a huge concert buff so I’m curious...what is your favorite concert you’ve ever been to? And who do you hope to one day see perform live?
JMN: I’ve been to sooo many concerts in my life thus far, but I would say my favourite concert was actually Miley Cyrus, Bangerz Tour… which was years ago! Just because of how the concert was arranged and everything they had set up, I would say it was unforgettable for me! I hope to see Post Malone in concert ASAP.
What is your next goal you hope to accomplish in your career? I can’t wait to see where this journey takes you :)
JMN: I just hope to keep creating music with my vision of how I want it to sound and how I want it to come across to people listening! For now, all I wish to accomplish is just to continue what I’m doing now & get more songs released! I never thought I’d actually be doing this one day, but my friends have helped me take the leap and now I can’t get enough! So as of now, I’m just content where I am and just hope people can relate to my songs! :)
