Rose Or A Thorn Q&A With Maysville Artist N8URE


1)What do you feel is the best song you’ve ever released and why?
Crux. It was the project i spent the longest on and put the most emotion into by far. Really it reflects that point in my life and it’s gonna be hard to top its value to me with any future track.

2)Which musician would you like to collaborate with next?
It would be an honor to collaborate with slug christ. I think his and my creative interests and inspirations/would feed off of each other and we could make a project that was truly beautiful. 

3)If you can have your fans remember one thing about you, what would it be?
If i could have my fans remember one sole thing about me it would be that my purpose was to make the mental anguish and struggles of our generation a glue that binds us together through ,the power of music.  

4)What do you like most about playing music?
what I like most about playing/making music is that it’s an expression of myself that can be experienced by someone without them having to even say a word to me. It lets them understand me when i’m unable to explain or even understand my own self.

5)What inspired you to start playing and making music?
Music ,has always been an interest of mine since childhood I knew I just loved music but it wasn’t until I started really understanding the deeper meaning to the songs i was listening to . I found this spark that made me want to tell my life’s stories and make the soundtrack to my life. so basically you could say I knew I wanted to make music when it finally touched my heart. 

6)Describe your creative process when you write new music.
My creative process varies , I mainly throw on a beat and vibe to it till I humm a melody out and then I turn the melody into lyrics. Simple but Ido have some superstitions about my process such as lighting, and what i’ve put in my body that day, the way i position myself to record because i think it opens my vocal range, etc .

7)Who’s your ideal musician to collaborate with and why?
My ideal artist to collab with would be lil peep ,had his journey to stardom not ended so sickeningly. That being said my favorite artist would also be my ideal artist. ibelieve what makes amazing music created by two people is a connection and understanding of one another’s aura and slug christ and I would be able to paint a musical masterpiece.   

8)Are there any musicians who inspire you?
Ofcourse there’s musicians that inspire me, without a musician to inspire the next musician there would be no music at all! My inspiration truly does come from a diverse melting pot of genres and artists such as. Juice Wrld, LiL peep, Mac Miller, $uicideboy$, Slug Christ, red hot chili peppers, nirvana, TOOL, falling in reverse etc.. Whether you hear it in my music or not, it all comes together to forge N8URE.
