-Interview- NVision (7/21/20)

Nvision talks about their Modern Rock sound, upcoming plans and much more.


From: Biloxi, MS
Sounds like: Rock

1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name “NVision" and is there any meaning behind it?

All of us had different music projects in our younger years, and our keyboardist/ DJ actually still makes music under the name @mxskedmusic. Alex, the main writer in the band, took influence from many of the 00's era bands as well as some more modern acts and just about every genre. Alex developed the name NVision about 3 years ago from the term being "In Vision," or in line with what you can see in the future. NVision started as more of a thought journal and developed into so much more.

2. What do you want people to take away from your music?

Hope for tomorrow. This world is so dark, and there is so much turmoil in our daily lives. If I can inspire ONE person to not give up for ONE more day, I've done my job.

3. How would you describe your sound to the average listener?

Modern Rock or Hard Rock.

4. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Bring Me the Horizon, Nothing More, and Starset.

5. What are your three desert island albums that you'd never get tired of listening to?

We're Only Chasing Safety - Underoath (Alex), That's the Spirit - Bring Me the Horizon (Austin), and Transmissions - Starset (Nate).

6. What’s your take on the current state of Rock?

I think that rock is on the come back. We are seeing a lot of once dying local scenes begin to rise up again. And with Corona, the smaller bands actually have the upper hand if we're working hard right now. Larger artists are limited to what they can do during these times and they have to break away from the touring mold we have all come to understand and accept. There is a new normal in these trying times and it could help shape the future of rock music for the better.

7. What’s the current music scene like there in Mississippi?

The music scene in MS is making a huge come back. There is a lot of local talent and a few bands down here have recently been signed to some labels. The most recent one I can think of is Silent Trust. Once corona is out of the way, I believe the MS scene will continue to rise for years to come.

8. What’s your take on the royalties that streaming services pay out to artists?

Honestly, I think streaming royalties are bogus. Yes, streaming services in a way saved the music industry. But what it means is that for an artist to actually make a living off of music, they can't do it just making music. They have to sell merch, concert tickets are higher, and we're all working twice as hard. And ultimately, the greater costs of being a musician is unfortunately passed onto the fans through higher concert ticket prices and higher merch prices.

9. What’s next for NVision?

We are currently in the ground stages of planning a few weekend tours and a week long tour for 2021. We are currently building towards releasing our debut rock ep and will be releasing new music videos bi-monthly. One thing is for certain: We're an artist to watch out for.

10. Any shoutouts?

Much love to From The Depths Entertainment for reaching out to us and joining getting our name out. Shoutout to James at Blind Anxiety Entertainment (Our booking agency) shout out to Vibers Entertainment in New Orleans, LA for giving us the start we needed and believing in the vision. And shout out to the Broken Hearts Club, our fans, for being apart of this amazing family.
