We had the good fortune of connecting with Keva Nicole and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Keva Nicole, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I chose to pursue being an artist because I see almost every aspect of life as a form of art and creativity; we as human beings are like walking canvases with different stories to tell through the gifts that we’ve been blessed with. My gifts just so happen to include music and modeling, I convey myself the best through these “mediums” and figured why not allow them to take me as far as they can not only in my personal life but in a career as well.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think the thing that sets me apart from others is the way I process things and how I complete my processes. I don’t force anything that doesn’t sound, look or feel good to me no matter what the circumstance is and that allows me to stay true to myself and my craft. I have songs written/ recorded that haven’t been released yet for this reason. I’m very much a “when the time is right I’ll know” kinda person but I am very excited about releasing my first EP by the end of this year. I co-wrote and recorded my very first song with a friend in our dorms and then started taking photos just for fun, before you knew it I had a professional photographer ask if he could feature me on his website and I continued writing more and more music along the way! I wouldn’t necessarily say the journey has been easy but I can say that it has been smoother than I expected because of the people I choose to work with. I want the world to know that everything you hear and see me do is authentic and of substance. I hope that helps to inspire others to do the same.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Oh we’d definitely have to make a trip to Rudy’s Chicken, The Daiquiri Shoppe, or Shell Shack for lunch and dinner. On a Thursday night skating at Forum Roller World and maybe Level Dallas for a little Sunday Funday. We could have some fun at the Museum of Illusions and Pinstack too! It’s hard to go wrong with good people, good energy and some good food.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shout out my entire Fire and Ice Productions team, they provide so much diversity and have supported every decision I have made not only as a client and artist but as a person also.
