    It's official. We love Katy Tiz. She's a super talented songstress from the UK (currently holding it down in the U.S. of A), and if you haven't heard of her yet, listen up. Katy's hit single "The Big Bang" is a funky, sassy tune that's every bit '20s swing band as it is straight-up pop. Her voice is a perfect mix of Adele and Fergie, but at the same time something new and unforgettable. We caught up with our newest Fresh Artist to learn a little more about her background and career. Check it out below!

    1. Congratulations on signing with Atlantic Records! After releasing music independently for some time, how does it feel to make it with such a big name label?

    It's AMAZING!! I still wake up everyday and have a little scream... It can get a little awkward when I'm alone and walking down the street... ;)

    2. You're originally from the UK but have recently been spending a lot of time around the US. What has been your favorite city to visit so far?

    Wow! That's a hard one, I fell in love with Chicago, Seattle, San fransisco and many more! I'm so lucky to travel and get to visit all the places. I do love anywhere with high buildings. I'm all about a view.

    3. What made you want to pursue music? Has singing always been your passion?

    Music has always been a huge part of my life. It's helped me through some rough patches. I was a late bloomer at 18, but my dream is to help others the way music has helped me. This is what has made me chase my passion.

    4. If you had the chance to do a musical collab with any artist, who would it be and why?

    Hmmmmmmmm... Well I was lucky enough to go and see Justin Timberlake in concert this weekend [interview conducted in July] and he was incredible so I would have to say him! #fangirlmoment

    RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
    And now, the rapid fire round! We asked Katy a series of silly questions, and here are the first things that came to mind!

  • TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist Interview: Nico & Vinz

    Posted on 07/25/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Fresh Artist: Nico & Vinz


    By now you've probably cruised down the highway to Nico & Vinz's breakout single "Am I Wrong?" blasting through the speakers. Or maybe you've tapped your toes to its infections beat at a pool party. In whatever way this inspiring and totally danceable summer smash has soundtracked your summer, it's pretty obvious that this Norwegian hit-making duo is doing something so right.

    But here's the thing: For Nico & Vinz, there's a lot more where that came from. We caught up with our new Fresh Artist to learn more about their debut album, their musical influences, and fun facts about their past! Check it out!

    1. Coming from Norway, how does it feel to see your music spread across the globe?

    It's almost indescribable. We're are having the time of our lives right now, trying to soak it all up. We always had a dream of having our music reach and touch people all over the world, and to see that dream happen is beyond amazing. We're truly grateful for the support and we're working to pay you back with the best music we can make!

    2. Your sound has roots in African rhythms and textures, but with a Scandinavian pop twist. What do you think is most special about that unique combination of influences?

    The most special thing about it is that it's very personal, it's Nico & Vinz. We figured that the best way to be unique, is to be yourself, because there's no one like you. So we started making music with that mentality and mixed our personalities and backgrounds in the music. Born and raised in Norway with parents from Ghana, Ivory Coast and Norway, influenced by the hip hop-culture.

    3. Has music always been your main focus and passion? How did you two become a duo?

    Nico wanted to be a professional soccer player and Vinz was studying before we decided to focus on music at the age of 20.

    4. Can you remember the first album or record that made a lasting impression on you?

    Nico: Nas Illmatic
    Vinz: Dr. Dre 2001

    5. For fans who are eager to hear more music from you, what can they expect in the coming months?

    Right now we're in the midst of finishing up our debut album Black Star Elephant, which will be out during fall. The album is a story based on our journey from where we started to where we've come now. We are very excited about releasing it and we definitely feel like this is our best music so far!

    RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
    And now, the rapid fire round! We asked nico & Vinz a series of silly questions, and here's what they had to say!

  • TeenNick Top 10 Fresh Artist Interview: 5 Seconds of Summer

    Posted on 07/03/2014 by TeenNickBlogger

    Fresh Artist: The Vamps


    You know that anywhere, anytime music that just puts you in a good mood no matter what? Well, Aussie pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer are pretty much the poster boys for that kind of feel-good vibe. And chances are, you've already come across (and subsequently played on repeat) 5SOS's mega-hit "She Looks So Perfect." But we're here to tell you that Luke, Michael, Calum and Ashton are only getting started.

    We caught up with our new Fresh Artist to learn a little more about their debut album which drops July 22nd, their experience on tour with One Direction, and the ultimate question: Boxers, briefs or tighty whities?

    1. From your hit single "She Looks So Perfect" to your TV debut on the Billboard Music Awards, we can imagine the past few months of your career have been quite the whirlwind. What is the biggest difference in your lives right now compared to a year or two ago?

    It's been a whirlwind! Four hours sleep a night, lots of air miles, lots of new cultures. Our love for touring remains the same, and we cannot wait to be back in America!

    2. Your songs are very lyrically driven and clever. If you had to choose one line from one of your songs as your favorite, which would it be and why?

    If Hollywood could see me now
    I'd get the starring role
    But they won't so I'll just keep on acting a fool


    From "Heartache on the Big Screen"

    3. Having been on tour with One Direction, what have you learned from the band that has helped you with your own career?

    They work so hard, and have shown us that by working hard you can achieve big things no matter where you are from.

    4. What is one of the craziest things a fan has ever done for you?

    [One fan] bought us a star. It was called the A155 Star in the Milky Way...

    5. Your debut album drops in July! In three words, can you describe what fans can expect from the album?

    High energy rock!

    6. And finally, what is one thing in America that you wish you had in Australia?

    Squirrels!

    RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS
    And now, the rapid fire round! We asked 5 Seconds of Summer's Ashton Irwin a series of silly questions, and here are the first things that came to mind!
