The illusivefish-interview

Name: Nick Hunter

Band name: Theillusivefish 

Is that a meaning to the band name? 

The name is a username I created when I was 12 (20 years ago), I’ve used it in various forms over the years and my Instagram was one of them when I set it up. It’s a combination of me trying to be cool and trying to own the fact some of the kids at school called me “fish lips” 

How long have you been playing?

 I first picked up a bass when I was about 12/13 

.

What music means to you? 

Freedom and a way to send a message and connect with people, and just a way to have a damn good time.

.

In one of the songs you say is something that I need to do, is that a meaning to that? Like a purpose? 

I’ve never really been able to get away from the fact that fundamentally I want to be a gigging and touring musician playing my own songs. It’s like this thing inside me I have to feed. I can’t not do this. I also want to use my music as a platform to support others and bring other artists up of I ever get that far, give other musicians the opportunities I wish I could have now. For example, if I’m ever able to do a headline tour I would want the opening act to be an unheard band I’ve come across and like to put them in front of as many people as possible.

.

What are some of your favorite bands that have most influence in your songs? 

I like a lot of bands and artists but if I had to make a short list, Jamie Lenman, Tool, Porcupine Tree, Muse, Nirvana, system of a down, David Bowie. 

What touches your soul?

Other showing others kindness and wanting nothing for it. Be it to/from animals or people.

Where can we find your songs? 

Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon music.

.

Anything you would like to add? 

I have a gig in London 23rd sept, details on my Instagram and various other social media platforms! Also looking for any gigs in London/kent/East Sussex areas!
