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!!
