Justin Nozuka im Interview

Posted by Bianca Wertheimer On Februar - 1 - 2012

Vergangene Woche war er in Berlin: Justin Nozuka! Wir haben dem smarten Singer/Songwriter für euch interviewt:

Der kanadische Ausnahmekünstler Justin Nozuka, der in seiner Heimat  Kanada sowie in Frankreich und Benelux schon längst ein gefeierter Superstar ist, konnte dort mit seinen Hits aus dem 2007er Debüt-Album „Holly“ und „You I Wind Land and See“ aus 2010 zahlreiche Erfolge feiern. Besonders „After Tonight“ aus seinem Erstlingswerk scheint es augenscheinlich auch einigen deutschen Musikfans angetan zu haben, ist es doch genau dieser Song den einige deutsche Radiostationen seit Veröffentlichung nie von Ihren Playlisten runtergenommen haben, und den ausgerechnet Roman Lob, seines Zeichen aussichtsreicher Kandidat im Wettbewerb bei „Unser Star für Baku“, auswählte um sich die Gunst von Jury und Publikum zu ersingen.

1. Hi Justin! You were in Germany last week. Did you have time for sightseeing?

” Hey. I had to work on some music production things on my off time so didn’t have much chance to visit. – I was only there for 2 days as well so there wasn’t much time.”

2. For readers who don’t know you yet, it would certainly be interesting to know a little bit more about your career. When did you start singing? When did you decide to become a musician?

“I started singing when I was about 12 years old. I think around the age of 13 or 14 I started thinking seriously about pursuing music.”

3. Your album „Holly“ has been named after your mother. What made you decide?

“Well I was about 17 at the time, and it was just something that resonated with me at the time.”

4. For those who have not listen to your music yet, how would you describe it? Especially your new album „You I wind land and sea“?

“YIWLS has a consistent traditional singer/songwriter strand running through it… R&B influences as well as rock/blues influences. – Holly was a more stripped acoustic/soul vibe, I’d say.”

5. Do you have role models? Who or what inspires you?

“At this point I’m really inspired by the music scene today. There seems to be a real wave of creative fresh artists on the up. – James Blake, Lianne La Havas, Bon Iver, Shlohmo, The Luyas, Fleet Foxes, BadBadNotGood, … There’s a lot of really good stuff coming out right now. I’m really inspired by all types of art… Anime and film, natural cinematography, dance, visual art, sounds.”

6. You wrote all the songs by yourself. Where do you get new ideas?

“The majority of my songs, I write, but there are a few that I’ve had collaborations on. At this point I’m finding my best songs are those that come from a real honest and truthful  place – A real emotion I might be feeling in my gut, a situation I might be in, or they might be inspired by my imagination or a dream of something.”

8. Are there plans for a tour? When will we see you again in Germany?

” I’m sure I’ll be in Germany sometime this year, hopefully to support my next album which I’m working on now.”

Thank you very much for the interview!
