Nick Wapachee: Interview

\\

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Music & family.

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A Cree craving for adventure. Nice guy. Outgoing. Loves music.

Why do you do what you do?

Singing with my guitar has always given me this sense of peace and adrenaline at the same time where nothing else matters but the music and the journey I take with the audience using my guitar, voice and presence.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

I had this dream where I was singing in front of the stage with millions; the feeling I got in my dream was the same feeling I got when I woke up.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

Insecurities were a battle but broke through walls with family and friends. Still growing and learning.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

My family is musically talented and some perform at special occasions and concerts. I would see them singing in front of stages and it got me thinking, “wow, they bring so much emotion in the songs, I want to do that.”

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

Letting go of the one I love and not staying. Heartache my friends. I found myself in music and I want to continue making music because it makes me feel alive. If you love each other, stay.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

Currently, I am working at a radio station but I will be studying Journalism in the Fall of 2015 at Ryerson University.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

If you have a dream, work for it! Your dreams are waiting for you. Nothing can stop you but yourself. Push your limits and take chances. Life is not about the destination but about the journey.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Thanks Amir.
