Firstly, we want to say that “My Broken Heart” is so memorable. The way this song was written you can feel your emotion behind the music and lyrics, what inspired you to write this song? Thanks so much! I wrote this song from mixed perspectives, even though I've been heartbroken before I did not necessarily write My Broken Heart from my perspective. This song talks about more than a few things that I actually have never experienced, like collapsing because of the liquor in my cup. I enjoy writing music from other people's perspective, and this has been the best yet. We couldn’t believe that you’re in high school and are creating music with such success, who has been your biggest supporter in bringing this dream to reality?
Thank you! I can't believe it either. My parents and my friends who have stuck with me are my biggest supporters.
At the age of 7 you were self-taught on the Piano, the Drums at age 10, Guitar at age 15 and continuously searching for more instruments to learn and perfect. At what point in this journey did it become clear to you that you wanted to pursue music professionally?
I had always wanted to perform or release some kind of music since around age 12, and I finally realized that I could actually do it around age 15 when I started messing around with recording and I eventually recorded my first few songs "missin u' and "why". I kept going, and I continue to improve while also having a great time making the music.
“My Broken Heart” is meticulously written and crafted into a compelling story of emotion. What was the writing process like?
Thank you! It took me a couple of weeks to finish writing the second verse with help from my manager, Preston Osenbaugh. But overall I wrote the hook in only a few hours and got a rough demo down really quickly. It was a lot of fun to write because I've never written a song with this vibe before.
What can we expect to see next from you?
I have lots of unreleased music and I continue to record more, so those will be coming out in the coming months. Make sure to stay tuned for new release announcements on my Instagram @therealnickreid.
