GETTING TO KNOW STEVE NUNN
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Song name: Holding On
Music Genre/ category : Country / Rock / Grime
This is one of those songs where we just wanted to have a bit of fun with it but at the same time I remember a time when I met the lady im with and thought no way im getting her but Im going to hang around and see whether its possible so i kinda had that in mind. I also wanted to experiment a little with Genres as Im a UK Artist trying my best to do Country justice I thought how can I put a track out that has a uk Vibe to it. Grime is huge in the UK So I thought wander if a grime rapper (IamTazzle) has ever appeared on a country rock track and to my knowledge this would be the first so we are pleased about that. I recorded the song my self and produced it. Normally I would go to the pro’s and will do in future but I just wanted one song I could say i did myself and I played every instrument on the track too so I was happy with how that went.
This is a really important Album for me. ..
I feel like its make or break now. Its also the genre i love for years Ive been in Rock Bands and it wasn’t really to my taste. I always thought a UK guy doing Country didnt work but I thought this time round who cares and when I put some bits out for people to listen to the response from mainly American Listeners has been amazing.
Most of the songs that will make the album are very much all about real life situations i have been in and will reflect very much so on my heart and personality so i think people in this first album will learn alot about me personally.
To top things if I have a young daughter now too and I would love her to one day listen to my music and know that music can be a powerfull tool to spread a message or just to express your feelings.
I live near Birmingham UK…
The music scene where I live I feel has always been amazing the crowds arent always out in force like they used to be but the quality of music in my area and some of the local talent is incredible especially in the rock scene.
We are famous for great metal and rock bands and we are still producing them.
Music business …
Getting music out is great. But knowing how to promote and who you can trust with your money to help you promote it well thats a different matter.
My Back ground is marketing so I know a little which really helps me with my networking but still it can be tough to try and standout in a market that is so crowded.
One of the best things to have happened in my opinion is SpotifyI have found more great new music than ever because of that platform and for that I love it, I just which the artists could recoup more of the money they invest.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
Well that would have to be PRINCE – for me it was all about his lyrics and the way he could take you on a journey with the way he delivered the songs. I saw him live twice and was best musical experiences ever.
