3 days from now we will be at Acoustic Sunday Funday at Stage AE!
I CANNOT WAIT!
This whole week leading up to the show I’ve gotten the chance to talk with the incredible artists who will be joining us– Ingrid Michaelson, Pierre from Simple Plan, and now today Nasri, lead singer of Magic!
This guy is the definition of chill– just as you would expect. The good vibes that come through in his songwriting for Magic! are him to a TEE. I had an awesome time getting to know the frontman with the great hair. (seriously– so jealous)
We got the chance to chat about the last time he visited Pittsburgh (when Magic! opened for Maroon 5 on their world tour, no big deal), what drives him to be so happy in the songs he writes (he is the proud father to a brand new baby boy!), and how playing with a full band is his favorite way to perform (all the guys will be at Stage AE on Sunday!)
“When you go to share these new songs too, there’s something about… it’s almost like you’re watching the way they were created, so we get a lot of pleasure out of that. It just feels like we’re hanging out with our friends by the lake when you sing acoustically. We really, really enjoy it as a band and we’re pleased to be invited and so we’re just gonna sing some songs.”
Nasri has also written music for Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Justin Bieber, NKOTB, and he won a grammy for F.A.M.E. with Chris Brown- we got to talk about when he decided to keep his awesome lyrics for himself and start Magic!
“I’ve been singing my whole life, so that was always the goal. The goal was for me to get a shot too. The spirits were aligning, it felt like the right time.”
Don’t miss Nasri and the rest of Magic! live at Stage AE this Sunday for Acoustic Sunday Funday! Get your tickets HERE.
