Nathan Merovich - 10 Question Interview
Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
For me, music is in the melody. I learned playing guitar back to back to my teacher, by the sounds. I hear music differently and I know how the words should sound. Ive just always wanted to people to hear music the way I hear it.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career?
I would have to say in 2019. I did this talent show at a local school and there was a radio host there as a judge. He asked me to compete in this event called Showdown in the Park against 9 other acts. Long story short, I ended up winning the event and got the opportunity to open Fall Fest for Fillmore, Dylan Scott, and Chris Janson. It was an awesome day!
What has been the high point of your music path?
At this point, recording an album through covid and releasing it for the world to hear!
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
We usually start with a concept, we always say “that would make a good song” when someone says a line or we are in an experience. Then we just run with it.
What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
Just being heard! There’s so many stipulations on what “qualifies” you to be able to be on country radio but I’m of the opinion that people don’t know what they don’t know! Have a day where you play only other artists stuff and see how it does!
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Well, Riley Green for sure, I can’t wait for him and I to write a hunting song some day, it’s gonna happen, you wait and watch!
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
Rehearsals are fun, it’s when I get the nerves out, if it’s a local show, I just run through some stuff, play a few riffs for fun! If it’s a big show…you’ll catch me doing a couple sprints out back haha
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
Wild horses was probably the most difficult to write. It was about letting go of the past and moving on, no matter how hard it was to do.
What's coming up in the future?
More music, bigger shows, touring and lots of fun!
