For those of you who know me, you don’t need to read this section, but for those who don’t…
I’m Nicole aka Nic the Brit – I’m not going to speak in third person as it’s me who’s writing this!
I was born and raised in Manchester, England. I’m 27 years young, and moved to Mexico City at the age of 15. Growing up in England, my dad showed me a lot of music, classics and new stuff – he’s a huge Gorillaz fan! I remember listening to vinyl’s in the living room, singing to The B-52’s in the car on the way to school, and going to basically EVERY pop band concert in Manchester.
Since moving to Mexico, my music hemisphere amplified, I discovered new bands, old bands that were totally new to me and started listening to a lot of Latin America stuff.
I worked on a radio station here in Mexico City called Ibero 90.9, and thanks to that, I became who I am today – I don’t know who I am exactly, but you get me!
I’ve interviewed many bands such as, Guns N’ Roses, Phoenix, Julian Casablancas and The Voidz, Aleks Syntek, Julieta Venegas, Os Mutantes, Jess Glynne, DLD, Caramelos de Cianuro, Villagrán Bolaños, Jumbo, Los Amigos Invisibles, Agrupación Cariño and more.
At the moment I freelance; interview bands, write for music magazines, do voice commercials, translate and give english classes to kids, collaborate on a show called Vigia on Reactor 105.7FM on Saturday’s from 6pm – 7pm alongside Jergas where I recommend new/upcoming bands from the U.K.
My dream: Dreams come true, so think big or go home!
Things I love: My family!!! Friends, traveling, eating (I’m a bit OCD with food), going to concerts and festivals, watching movies, discovering random things; from a new band to a quote in a movie, wearing the colour black, awkward situations, getting pampered, fashion, basmati rice, the smell and taste of licorice, hanging out with my nephews.
Here you’ll be able to read interviews I’ve done with international and national bands, reviews on new songs and albums, gossip – no, I’m not the next TMZ!, recommendations, feelings, ideas and a bunch of other things – all music related!
I would like to state that I don’t talk about any genre in particular, just what I’m in to.
I hope you enjoy this page massively, and if you’d like to contact me, don’t hesitate in doing so.
