Hello! I have been super busy but very well thank you!
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Colour Me In”?
Colour Me In is my second single this year, it’s basically a pretty classic love song presented in a more modern way. It’s about finding that person who makes you want to fall in love again.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
I always write songs about feelings I have felt or situations I have been through, but when I wrote this song there wasn’t really a particular event that had happened that inspired it. It was more ‘lets write a song about that feeling’ rather than it actually happening.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
For this single I wont be releasing a full on music video, but we’re shooting a little something special in the next week…
How was the recording and writing process?
It was one of the funnest processes i’ve had. I wrote it with my good friends Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway who work out of this gorgeous barn studio, so it was a very chilled process. We kinda recorded as we wrote, and so the bulk of the final song is exactly as it sounded in the demo.
What was it like to work with Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway? What did they brought up to the table?
Working with Nick and Edd is always an absolute dream. They are both incredibly talented and so I think it always pushes me to work harder whenever i’m around them. They brought everything to the table, I can safely say this track would not be as good as it is without them.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than working on your own?
Oh definitely. When i’m writing in my own or producing my own demos, I tend to have certain routines I fall back on because I know how I work best in my bedroom studio, and I only have certain equipment. When i’m working with other people I kind of mix it up unintentional just purely through seeing how other people work and it definitely changes the way I approach the session.
As your music keeps getting more and more momentum – did you feel any pressure while working on this new material or rather the opposite?
Weirdly I don’t think so. I never approach creating new material as a sort of ‘this song has to be the next single’ thing, so in the actual creative process I don’t have that pressure there, I like to kinda let it happen. I only feel pressure to keep momentum building when it actually comes to releasing the music and deciding which songs to put out next. I feel like that’s the point that you can easily mess up on.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
There definitely is new material! It’s all finished but I won’t say anything more…
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Yep, but again, keeping it under wraps…
Any plans to hit the road?
Hopefully towards the end of the year i’ll head out and do some more shows, but for the time being it’s all still being planned.
What else is happening next in Nick Wilson’s world?
Just a whole bunch of writing new music, and planning exciting things for this year! I’m heading out to LA to write at the end of the year which I cannot wait for!
