Q&A / Nosmoh
What or who inspired you to start making music?
I owe a lot of people for the creative inspiration they've brought me, but Ian Ewing was definitely the man that inspired me to begin making my own tunes.
If you could tell every person in the world one thing, what would it be?
"You are enough." It really hurts me to see that so many people struggle with insecurity, self-worth, and self-esteem. As someone who's been deep in that well, I would want everyone to be able to realize that they are enough as they are. No one's perfect, and we're all just humans searching for ourselves.
Where do you feel the most centered and happy?
I'm a huge homebody, so home has always been my safe place. Specifically, my bedroom is my favorite place to be, as it's where I create my music and escape from the busy outside world. I should also note that spending time with my best friends always brings me peace and happiness. A good friend feels like home.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
Anywhere in Japan would be a dream location for me. I spent a total of eleven years of my life there, and I absolutely love the weather, the kindness of the people, the food, culture, everything.
What do you wish you could tell yourself five years ago?
"Don't waste time trying to please others, and be yourself. Identify who your real friends are, and hold on to them tight, because they are the ones who will stick around if you do."
