NICK NOON

RGM INTRODUCING – WE INTERVIEW NICK NOON WHAT HAPPENED?

Hi Nick. What made you decide that music is a thing for you?

Music seems like it chooses us, we don’t seem to choose it. That and boredom. What else was there to do?

Introduce us to you all and your musical history.

There are lots of artists that I have always listened to. The first artists I remember loving as a young kid were Elvis and the Beach Boys. When I got to high school I got into Oasis and Blur heavily. I dabbled on piano growing up, but I didn’t start playing guitar until after high school. As soon as I could play a few chords I just naturally started writing songs.

What was life like for you before music?

I played a lot of basketball. 

What was the first song you heard that steered you into a music path?

Don’t Look Back in Anger by Oasis

Nice Choice, Where do you feel you currently sit within the music industry?

Outside of it.

What’s the biggest thing you have learned from someone else in the industry? 

Treat people as you want to be treated and help the next person get ahead if possible.

Tell us Two truths and a lie about you.

I don’t sweat. 

I’ve been to Antartica.

I’m friends with some of the most famous comedians on Earth.

If you could wish for one thing to aid your career what would it be?

The power to be invisible and to be able to teleport. 

Do you ever worry about people taking things the wrong way or cancel culture? Discuss….

People are idiots. Who cares what they “cancel.”

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories? If not why not?

It depends on your definition of “conspiracy theory.” One man’s truth is another person’s conspiracy. Jeffrey Epstein and his child sex island was a “conspiracy theory” until the public paid attention to the story. Do I know we are all lied to constantly by our governments, media, and various corporations? Yes. Is the public persuaded to believe certain narratives through propaganda? Yes. Do I believe in flat earth? No.

What was the worst experience on stage?

I was in a band that broke up on stage. We started the show to a packed room and it was basically empty by the end with only me and the bass player still on stage.

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.

I have no idea what I’m doing. That’s probably not that big of a surprise to most people though.

What are the next steps you plan to take as a band to reach the next level?

Begin recording a full-length album.

Whats your thoughts on Elon Musks contribution to the world?

They’re substantial and appear to be world-changing. I’m not entirely convinced I trust him, but he has done some fairly good things for the most part. 

I hear you have a new music, what can you tell us about it.

It’s a song called Who Needs Who, it’s actually one of the very first songs I wrote ages ago. It’s not a song that reinvents the wheel, but it has a lot of energy.

What was the recording process like?

Not terrible but tedious because I record so many of the parts myself. Luckily I have a great drummer named Keith Schaubert who I work with and makes that side of things go seamless. Everything is me though typically and I’m a perfectionist which can be incredibly annoying at times, especially for the people around me.

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the new tunes?

I don’t know. I just try to write something I like. I’m not thinking about it that deeply.

Would you change anything now it’s finished? 

Probably, but it’s great as is. Go listen to it.
