1. Thank you very much for your time! Before we introduce your new release to our readers – what kind of drink would you recommend to zip on while they listen to your new music?
Go make yourself a margarita, any kind ya like! My music should always be enjoyed with tequila because it’s kinda like tequila. You’ll start dancing like no ones watching, it boosts your confidence to make you sing along at the top of your lungs, and gets you a little emotional 😉 but man it makes you feel good! They don’t call it te’kill’ya for nothing, I’ll tell you that!
2. Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!
So my brand new song, 25, just came out last week and I am so excited about it. It’s all about how much of a sh*t show your twenties are. It’s such a fun song and whether you’re 15 or 55, I know it will resonate with you and you’ll connect on a personal level, no matter where you’re at in your life crisis state. It’s quirky, the lyrics are spot-on, and the energy stays high the whole time so you can dance all your problems away. I also released a lyric video with the song on June 15th. The video is super simple but so visually appealing. That Good Graphic did an incredible job bringing the visuals to life and captured the song perfectly.
As for tours, I am actually doing a little tour-like thing this summer! I will be playing in Burlington, Pickering, and Brampton Ontario with the Canadian Food Truck Festival! I’m so hyped about it, this is the first touring festival that I’ve ever done. If anyone wants any more information on that or any other shows that I’m doing this summer, they can always head over to my website (www.nicolehabermusic.com) and find the tickets and locations on the ’shows‘ page!
3. We live in times of many conspiracy theories. Which, harmless, theory would you wish were true? (For example, Dinos living inside Earth or E.T. living in a home in California)
Ok so I hope this counts as harmless, but I wish the conspiracy theory that „Global warming is a myth“ was true. I believe that global warming is a thing and if you don’t that’s cool too, everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but man I wish that conspiracy was true because I would love to live my life without feeling like the world is going to implode on itself…you know?
4. What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?
I’m not really great with fashion, I’ll be real, my looks consist of what it looks like when a parent allows their 5-year-old to dress themselves. But I would say anything loud! Probably colorful, bold, maybe even sparkly? And there always has to be black involved somewhere in the look. I like the contrast of it all. Something dark, but brought to life with some color or something shiny.
5. Tell us more about your songs! Topics! Message!?
My stuff is actually pretty raw, real, and honest. Sometimes the lyrics can be borderline depressing and dark, but that’s because I like to talk about my depression and anxiety or my life experiences. I try to write about topics that I know I’m not alone in and I try to shed some light for the people who might not want to deal with those types of situations. But I always like to soften my songs up a little bit with either a dancy upbeat energy or aesthetically pleasing visuals. Makes it a little bit more appealing to a broader audience and makes those situations feel a little less giant in my opinion. I hope that makes sense. Basically what I’m trying to say is that my music has helped me get through a lot and my only hope is that I can do that for as many people as possible with it.
6. Besides music, do you have any special talents?
I’m a really great chef! I love to cook and I’m pretty daym good at it. My most delicious accomplishments are my Beef Wellington’s, Gordon you would be proud, and my „better than Cinnabon“ cinnamon buns with homemade cream cheese frosting. I wish I could attach photos because I would love to give you that food porn and make your mouth water.
7. Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!
1) I’m a belter by nature, thanks to my musical theater roots.
2) I actually learned how to sing wrong growing up and didn’t know until my early twenties. I was told I would lose my voice completely if I didn’t correct it and it was one of the hardest things to deal with both vocally and emotionally. My confidence was shot and I thought that was it for me as a singer. But I came back from it after years of recovering and I’m better than ever and my confidence is at an all-time high.
3) I have a year’s worth of music planned and ready to go at all times and it drives me nuts that I can’t just release it all tomorrow. So to my fans, always know that I have something dope on the ready for you!
4) If you’re ever around me you’ll know because I’m always singing out loud in public. Whether it’s at a restaurant, walking on the sidewalk, or anywhere in between. I can’t control myself when it comes to singing.
5) I have no idea what I’m doing half of the time. As an artist, I just constantly want more for myself, I have these ridiculous dreams that I’m trying to make a reality. So even if I don’t know what I am doing all the time, I’m constantly trying and working towards those goals and learning within the process.
8. How did you learn to sing/ to write/ to play??
Fun fact, I didn’t.
All of my training came later in life. I loved to sing, act and dance at a very young age and my family couldn’t afford the training, so I just taught myself everything I wanted to know. Luckily, my high school had an incredible art and theater program that I got involved with, but unluckily for me, my music teacher didn’t catch all the mistakes I was making with my voice and it wasn’t until college that my one-on-one vocal coach was like „ok, we need to fix this“. I guess it was my passion that kept pushing me through when I had zero technical training.
9. A question you’d like to answer, but have never been asked in an interview before?! + Answer pls
Ok, I love this! So the question would be; If you weren’t an artist, what would you be? And my answer to that is a forensic psychologist! I know totally random, but I love psychology. I read abnormal psych textbooks for fun sometimes. I remember when I was a kid I used to watch criminal minds with my parents and I was so fascinated by the idea of forensic psychology. I’ve always wanted to know why people are the way they are and why they do the things they do. There’s always more to it or some backstory behind it, and I would love to get into someone’s mind to further understand and work through it.
