Meet R&B Sensation Natalie Nichole
Hey Natalie, Welcome to ABOUT INSIDER! For those people who do not know who you are or what you do, can you please introduce yourself?
Hey, I’m Natalie Nichole. My supporters call me The Queen Dove & I’m a singer, songwriter, actress, author, inﬂuencer & all around Entertainer.
Natalie Nichole, you are an American singer-songwriter, what age were you when you ﬁrst became interested in music?
Music has always been a part of my life so I knew as early as ﬁve years old that I wanted to be a singer. Writing songs has always been a form of expression & escape for me. I didn’t have the easiest upbringing so music was my positive outlet.
What age were you when you thought you could make a career out of music?
I was in third grade when I knew there was absolutely no way I could ever go without singing and being expressive. That was the point I knew I wanted to do all I could to make it my career.
Can you remember what age you were when you ﬁrst performed in front of an audience?
I was ﬁve years old and performed at a theme park. Everyone went crazy and kind of mobbed me because I did so well but it was a wonderful experience. Music and performing are two of my absolute joys. From then on I pursued it whole-heartedly.
What age were you when you ﬁrst made money from music and what did you buy to celebrate?
I was about ﬁfteen years old when I ﬁrst made some money oﬀ of my music but I didn’t really start making decent money til my early twenties when I met my music manager.
A lot of artists work in diﬀerent ways when they are writing a new song, some write the music ﬁrst while others write the song ﬁrst, which way do you do it?
I write in which ever way comes natural at the time. Sometimes it’s just a melody & no words or it comes as words & a melody together. Every way you mentioned I’ve written in before including freestyling so I write in ALL ways, not just one. To me there’s no right or wrong way to make art.
How did you come up with ideas for your new album Moments?
For Moments there really wasn’t a formula to coming up with the ideas for the records. I genuinely just write about my life experiences and topics that I can relate to. To sit here and explain anymore than that would be a disservice to the records. You can literally listen to them all and get deep, sexy, intense and at times wild story. If you want to know me or know what’s going on in my mind or life listen to my music. I rather you hear me sing than explain anything.
If you had to give advice to an upcoming new artist what would your advice be?
The best advice I could give an upcoming artist is to do your research. If you don’t want to be controlled or be taken advantage of look into what you’re getting into. All the information you need to be a successful indie artist is out there. If you want to be signed to a label you should still do your research & see what you’re willing to give up as far as ownership of your intellectual property.
