Meet Nic Amidon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nic Amidon.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
As far as the music is concerned, the poetry all started with my brother. He would always write poems for girls in school to get their attention, and it really stuck out to me how words were able to brighten someones day to the level that I was witnessing. I began to do the same thing and the experience I was having was even more rewarding. My family had a lot of hardships, due to the consequences of someones actions. We all dealt with it in the only way we knew possible. For me, I became an extreme introvert and dove much deeper into the poetry. I discovered how powerful this was as an outlet for my emotions and grew as a person because of it. One after another, life lessons would show up causing me to become even more introverted.

A dear friend once told me that, “humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.” This is what I base the idea of my music off of. Humility, and the idea of altruism.

The vulnerability in my music has had the effect of bringing down the walls and allowing people to open up. The whole purpose is to free the mind and lead the blind.

What do you think about the conditions for artists today? Has life become easier or harder for artists in recent years? What can cities like ours do to encourage and help art and artists thrive?
I have not been involved long enough to see clear points of negative or positive aspects when it comes to being an artist but I can say that in just a few short months my life has changed for the better. I believe that organizations like yours have a huge impact on the lives of artists. Sometimes it starts to feel like there is no purpose or I have lost a direction and then someone like you presents an opportunity that changes all of that. I think if the press was more involved in positive stories of motivated artists rather than the dark shadows of our society, the impact would be greater than we could even imagine.r society, the impact wo
