teen singer-songwriter, Nic Howell talks with TMI about his debut solo EP, “Welcome To The Mind of a Teenage Boy”

Hey Nic, so excited to be chatting with you again, last time we spoke you were in the popular boy band Beatline Boys. What has the transition been like for you going from being in a band to going solo?

It’s been good! Definitely was an adjustment at first, but I’m super happy with where I’m at and all the memories I’ve made! I’m still super close to all the members of the Beatline Boys. I’m able to create much content and music now that is much more aligned with my brand and who I am as a person.

How would you describe your musical style as a solo artist? What artists do you look up to right now?

I would describe it as a branch of Urban pop. I really look up to Kanye, John Mayer, and Post Malone.

You just released your new EP Welcome To The Mind of a Teenage Boy!! Can you spill any details on what it was like creating the EP?

It was a super fun process! One thing many people don’t know is that we recorded “Miami” in Miami, and we recorded “Somewhere in the Middle” at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London.

What has been your reaction to all the support of your new EP?

I’m super happy everyone is connecting with the music!

What’s your favorite song off of the new EP?

Definitely H&H just because of how real it is.

What song are you most excited to perform from this new EP?

I actually performed them all already, but I love performing Can’t Stop!

What does it feel like to perform your own music live in front of your supporters? How do you want your relationship to be with your supporters?

Its such a blast! I want our relationship to be like a family!

Does your fanbase have a name?

Not exactly, but I low-key call them The Nicoteens haha

What was the craziest fan encounter you have had?

Probably when I got mobbed in Georgia after a show, and it took like three police officers to fend them fans off … lolol

What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans?

Instagram

Why do you think social media is so important for teen artists today?

It’s a way for us to connect with our fans and stay in touch.

What’s an average day for you look like?

Wake up early, cook breakfast, go to the gym, then off to the studio to write and record. But now that the EP dropped there is a lot more on the schedule! Like News interviews and a lot of show prep, along with a lot of working and writing with other up and coming artists.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Go out in the boat with friends and go off-roading.

What impact do you want to have on the music world?

I want to inspire people to be themselves!

What goals have you set out for yourself in your career and in your personal life?

My real goal is to help people be themselves and live life to the fullest!

How has this whole music career experience been?

It’s been a lot of fun! I can’t wait to play more shows!

Do you have any advice for aspiring music artists?

Stay true to who you are, and make the music you love! Don’t follow trends.

Do you have any last things you went to tell your supporters?

Keep being you! And keep on the lookout for a new single!
