Hi Nick, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Hi! Things are great. Been living in the studio for a couple months writing for the new project.
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Been Lovin’ You”?
We wrote Been Lovin You some years ago when I was working at Fred Segal in Santa Monica. I actually wrote the song at work. A couple years passed and we finally decided to put it out. It’s just a fun and light song that puts you in a good mood the moment you press play!!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Well not in particular but there is a line in the song that says…” And then I asked you for your number, you only gave four. Girl I’m a play your guessing game but guess again if you don’t think I’m gon’ score. That is a true story! lol The girl only gave me four numbers and told me to guess the rest. HAHA! So,that being said… I didn’t score.
How was the film experience?
It was great. Rich is a close friend of ours and gave great direction. Made my job so very easy. Plus I’m from LA and grew up on fairfax so I was comfortable. The canters diner scene is my fav cuz my grandma and grandpa worked at Canters for 13 years. I spent a lot of nights sleeping in that booth. Waiting for G- Ma to get off.
How was the recording and writing process?
It was great we recorded the song at our studio in Hollywood. Funny thing is that song has been recorded 20 different ways.
How has LA influence your sound?
LA is my home it’s where I’m from. It’s a concrete paradise!!! Like Kendrick said. “We got the women weed and weather!” How can you not be influenced and inspired everyday you wake up.
What role does beauty plays in your music?
Beauty plays a huge roll! I love making music that feeds the soul. I think this new generation has forgotten or simply doesn’t get to experience beautiful music the way we did as kids. So that’s something we want give back to the kids. So they can see swirling colors when they hear that song that moves them.
Does the single mean we can expect a new EP – how’s that coming along? Yes a new EP is on its way. We are mixing as I type lol. It’s going great we are really stoked to release it as we have a grown leaps and bounds in experience.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
No title yet but we plan on releasing sometime in late March.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes we are currently planning our summer tour!!
What else is happening next in Nicky Davey’s world?
Dave and I have been doing a lot of writing and producing not only for ourselves but for other artists.I think the most exciting thing on the calendar right now is our orchestra session in a couple weeks In Prague. We had an incredible score composed by Sujin Nam for our song called, “Universe”. This should be the icing on the cake to the Ep.
