1. You describe yourself in your role as a singer and songwriter as emotionally charged, where in your life do you feel that this sprung from?
First of all I would like to thank you for having this interview. I have always considered myself a romantic fighter and believer as long as I can remember. What I have learnt over the years is to live each day at a time and be grateful. I had the chance to work with what I love most and that is music. I would not have made it if it weren’t for my fans. Their never-ending love and support made it all happen and that’s why I can’t say thank you enough. I do what I do because of them and I will keep doing that as long as they charge me emotionally.
  1. Your new album ‘Steve and Friends’, what made you want to collaborate? Will we be seeing a lot more collaborations in future albums?
During the production of “Steve & Friends” I had the chance to collaborate with some very talented musicians from all over the world. A had two musicians playing the violin from Chile and Malaysia, one Canadian playing harmonica and one German playing the piano. I found the idea of collaborating with musician from all over the world very intriguing that’s why I opened up to collaborations. In my first personal album “Unplugged” released in August 2015 it was just me and my guitars. I have already started recordings for my new project, this time with a full band called Last Minute Rescue.
  1. With a few hints that the songs on your next album will be original, will the album be entirely written by you?
My next album “The time is now the place is here” will be released by the end of the year and it will be entirely written by me, both music and lyrics. I have written more than 100 songs over the years, so you can assume song-writing is something I have always indulged myself with.
  1. What do you find so appealing about philanthropy and charity work?
Philanthropy is something I have always wanted to do. The world can be a better place to leave in if we all contribute a little more. Everyone with his one way and ability. All profits made from my two albums are going to donations to fight hunger, prevent malnutrition and improve the lives of boys and girls in Africa. I firmly believe that charities can make a difference.
  1. What can we be looking forward to from you in the near future?
My future plans are to continue making albums, maybe concentrate more on original songs and not so much on covers since a have a growing fan-base now and to help people in need. Thank you so much for your time and all my gratitude to all my supporters!!

Steve Nick is a singer-songwriter. He just released his second personal album called ''Steve&Friends'' with collaboration from all over the world. We have conducted an interview with Steve.
 
 
Which musical instruments do you play and have you written any songs in Greek?
First of all I would like to thank you for the interview and my fans for their love and never-ending support. I play the guitar. I got my first guitar at the age of 14 and have been playing ever since. At this moment I have 4 guitars in my possession, two electric (Gibson-Fender) and two acoustic guitars (Takamine and Stagg). The first songs I wrote when I started songwriting were actually in Greek.
 
How difficult or easy is songwriting for you?
I wrote my first couple of songs at the age of 6 and never stopped since then. I am proudly enough to say that I have written more than 100 songs over the years. So you can assume that songwriting is something I have always enjoyed.
 
What are the interesting events that happened during the production of "Steve&Friends" with collaboration from all over the world?
During the production of “Steve&Friends” I had the chance to collaborate with some very talented musicians from all over the world. A had two musicians playing the violin from Chile and Malaysia, one Canadian playing harmonica and one German playing the piano. We actually never met but it was all possible through the net.
 
 
Why are you making this collaborative album?
“Steve&Friends” released in April 2016 is my second personal album. My first personal album “Unplugged” was released in August 2015 and it was just me and my guitars. This time I decided to try something else that’s why I opened up to collaborations. These days I actually started recordings for my third album (The time is now the place is here) which is going to be released by the end of the year, this time being a full band project.
 
When did you start your charity mission and what do you plan to do in the near future?
All profits made from my albums are going to donations to fight hunger, prevent malnutrition and improve the lives of boys and girls in Africa. I firmly believe that charities can make a difference. My future plans are to continue making albums, maybe concentrate more on original songs and not so much on covers since a have a growing fan-base now and to continue to try to make this world a better place to leave in. Thank you so much for your time and many regards to all my fans!! You made this happen!!
