Interview: "Like You" - NEZZY
What life experiences inspired you to write "Like You"?
NEZZY: I was on holiday in Corsica and I listened to some US rock bands while chilling on the beach, artists like Blink-182. When I got back to the studio, I tried to create strong guitar gimmicks and Like You came to light thanks to this more "pop-rock" mood than I usually have.
If "Like You" had a music video, what would you want it to look like?
NEZZY: That would probably be a video based on fans' footage, where people would show some of the coolest actions - activities they like sharing with their friends. Because the song says it all: "nobody does it like you". By the way, a lyrics video is now available on my Youtube channel.
I saw on your YouTube channel that you have a home studio with a lot of instruments. If you could only play one instrument for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
NEZZY: I’m very familiar with my piano but I’d choose my guitar for sure because this instrument is more in phase with my state of mind, probably more charming, too...
What is your best memory of performing live?
NEZZY: I’ve got two in mind. First would be performing Green Fest post-summer in Avignon because it was my biggest crowd ever, it was amazing and I felt a lot of deep emotions when I dropped my songs in front of these thousands of party people. I also can mention my French tour with Trinix, we were on the road together during two weeks so when it was the last show, in our hometown of Lyon, we were totally overwhelmed by emotions. For me, it was such a special moment to share 100% of my own music LIVE in front of hundreds of fans, including my close family and childhood friends.
I read in your Spotify bio that you're from France! How do you feel the music scene in or near Lyon has influenced your personal taste in music?
NEZZY: French scene has always influenced me because our artists have been so talented in terms of electronic music. I was born with Daft Punk in my ears, since I’ve listened to music, French electronic artists have always been part of my culture and then I was also blown away by the international success of these new artists like Petit Biscuit, Kungs, and Madeon, who literally exploded while they were young, so I’ve tried to follow their path…
If you could tour with any musician, dead or alive, who would it be?
NEZZY: It's a very hard question so I'm gonna share my top five with you:
