Today we took a second to chat with singer-songwriter, William Nesmith. Keep reading to learn more about William!!
Hi William! Thanks for being here today!
How does your music affect the world?
It’s heartfelt, anthemic, and motivational. People that listen to my music either say “I’ve been there” or “That makes me feel better"
Who has been your biggest cheerleader as an artist?
My awesome friend and mentor Lauren Light (https://www.laurenlight.com/). She owns a licensing company, releases solo artist music, and has like a million side projects for sync and artist pitching. We’re always running promotion and production ideas back and forth with each other, and I’ve learned so much from her
Tell us about your latest release!
It’s an electrifying anthem to get it in gear and achieve your goals—whether they’re big or small. No matter how hard your goals may be to achieve, have a positive attitude and put “one foot in front of the other"
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
“Spreading my wings” as an artist and exploring different tracks, sounds, videos, and creating cool content.
How do you find peace in an often chaotic world?
When I feel depressed or stressed, I throw on my AirPods and dance around the room.
What does "making it" mean to you?
The “fame” and achievements are certainly part of it, but also seeing that your music truly impacts people. From my last few releases, I’ve had people message me from around the world to tell me how my songs have helped them express their emotions, achieve their goals, and so much more.
What have been some of your greatest achievements as an artist?
2018 NSAI-WSPT Songwriter’s Standoff Winner, 2020 Yes Weekly’s Triad’s Best 2nd Place in four categories (Best Musician in the Triad, Best Songwriter, Best Vocalist, Best Piano Player), 2020 Doodad Farm 60-second song Songwriting Contest Winner. I co-wrote “Run” (with Lauren Light, Wes Lauterbach, and Zane Frye) that was placed on the TV show Marvel’s Runaways
When did you become a music lover and what does it bring to your life?
For as long as I can remember. My parents took a photo of me as a toddler reaching at the church piano. I was the golden boy in choir all through grade school. For my high school senior choir solo, I performed an original song called “Four Years” that brought the audience to tears and it’s when I realized for the first time that I could write a song from my heart and true experiences and connect with others—still a great feeling to this day!
