We at New Fresh Music had the opportunity to Interview the upcoming artist 𝐍𝐈𝐒𝐇𝐈𝐎𝐊𝐀!
Where are you from?
Who are your biggest artistic influences?
My influences were Whitney Houston, Earthwindfire, and Queen.
Tell me about how your creation part begins, and how is your workflow.
When I was fishing, which is my hobby, and I somehow heard a catchy melody, I would record it on my iPhone, play it back in the studio, and finish it as a song when I was singing while playing the guitar.
Describe how art is essential to society nowadays
Music is important to society, but above all, I believe that music is important to individual lives. Human beings have feelings of joy, anger, sorrow, and love, which is a very special emotion. Music is the thing that reminds us of the love that lies dormant within that joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure. One of them is music.
What motivates you to create?
The only motivation for my creation was the thought that I wanted to leave a proof that I was alive in this world after my death.
How do you define success as a music artist?
Of course, I think it is a success as an artist to become famous by participating in a big festival or appearing on a famous TV program. But for me, who wants to live my life doing what I want freely in my own time, I have little desire to participate in such things now. TV programs, in particular, have long hours of restraint, so I would rather go fishing then. Because of this personality, I have come to think that my image of success as an artist is “that there will be people listening to the music I make after I die.
How do you develop your art skills?
When developing your artistic skills, it is of course important to listen to a variety of music and practice your instrument repeatedly, but I think the most important thing is not to stay at home or in the studio and play music all the time, but to go outside and play a lot. By immersing yourself in your hobbies and gaining experiences you have never had, the joy, anger, and sorrow in your heart will grow, and this will broaden the scope of your art. Remember, from the time we are born, we live to paint the art called life. Every person is an original artist from birth.
What is your next move?
My next move will be to go fishing soon, weather permitting. As for music, I plan to release about 6 new songs by the end of this year, see you at the Nippon Budokan in 5 years.
Thanks for the Interview and we at New Fresh Music are the best in your music Journey!
