Go into detail on how you decide to choose music as a career.
I practice music since my six, it’s a big part of my life, but I still study Science Politique (Political Science), I hope to have a music career but I want a degree too.
Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans concerning your music.
“So Strong” is the first song that I published on the internet as Nour, so it’s just a beginning, people find it cool and they expect news songs!
Brief us about the recording of this song.
I met Adrien in Unisons, an association that has a studio, and he asked me if I would want to take part in his EP “Beauty for Freedom”, of course, I said yes and I chose this instrumental because it sounds so 90’s with a good vibe. We recorded with Adrien in his studio during the afternoon and it was okay!
Tell us the story behind the song.
When I’m writing songs, it’s a kind of outlet; it’s my way to express myself when I’m in trouble! So Strong talks about a bad mood, when you feel hurt and you become withdrawn and then you don’t know how to escape from your own mind (jail).
Tell us how long it takes to finish a song from the start.
When I have a theme I don’t take too much time to write, record, and mix the song could be quite long because it’s a work of precision.
Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.
It generally begins with an impulsive text and after I come back to it to work on the rhymes and the flow.
State your five favorite genres.
Rock is first; I really discovered music with The Kooks or The Arctic Monkeys.
Then, with the biopic of Bob Marley, I was 12, I fell in love with Reggae music, I discovered hip-hop/rap in High School and I’m a fan of Biggie.
I began to have an interest in Jazz and Soul music later when I was 17, with BADBADNOTGOOD or Esther Philips.
Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.
It’s incredible to share your work, your passion! The best feeling ever to be directly connected to people who like your music!
Tell us about your musical background.
I used to be in the Conservatory when I was 9 years; I learned Flute and music theory, but I was bored by only practicing classic, so I began to learn the guitar and how to sing. In High school, I had an Indie rock band with my best friends called “KASHMEAR”. It’s was really cool but now we all are studying in different cities so we stopped the band. Last year, I gave some concerts with my compositions in a reggae and folk style just with my guitar but it was not what I really wanted to do. And it’s only this year that I met people to create the music that I expected.
