Home / Music / Artist Interviews / INTERVIEW: Nick Wayne


Hi Nick, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?

GREAT! Just released music for the first time ever so really enjoying the moment.. Thanks for reaching out.

Can you talk to us more about your latest singles “How Do I Get Close” and “If You Ever Wanna”? Did any event in particular inspire you to write these songs? 

For sure.. “How Do I Get Close” came about in a write with my gal Hannah Ellis, who is an artist as well, and Josh Kerr who is now my producer… The conversation that led us to writing this song was about how hard it is both being artists and being on the road away from each other.

“If You Ever Wanna” is really an example of my personality as a whole. It’s impossible for me to ask for anything out of anyone or put pressure on someone in general in fear of them really not wanting to do whatever it is … The song is kind of my way of asking someone on a date… I only want to if you really REALLY want to because I really REALLY want to too… its a struggle.

How was the filming process and experience behind the video?

It was amazing. Ian and Alex really brought to life what I saw in my mind and had a blast doing it.

Did you shoot them back to back?

Yes we did! Back to back 3am nights… so much fun tho.

How was the recording and writing process?

Fun and exhausting… I’m kind of the type that has to try it from every angle to know I got it right… I think its my way of knowing I did my absolute best… but working hard is super fun to me.

What made you want to release two new songs? 

I think to establish who I am as an artist. These two songs are my ying and yang.. Kind of the book ends of my music.. everything else will fall in-between these from here on out I’d say.

Are they both related when it comes to its lyrical themes?

 oh for sure… they’re very not what you say but how you say it type songs… which is how I think.

Does the new singles mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?

Yes and very well… recording a bunch of new sides and having a blast doing it! Lots of bourbon being consumed.

Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Date no but title yes… it’s a secret.

Any plans to hit the road?

Oh yes.. lining up a bunch of shows as we speak… really looking forward to it.

What else is happening next in Nick Wayne’s world?

This stuff for the most part.. Enjoying this time of year since it’s my favorite. On the road with Hannah a little bit here and there when I can. Playing some golf before it gets to cold.
