Quarantine has not been without it’s frustrations, especially for those in the creative space. Many musical artists have been forced to think outside the box and learn new skills in order to get new music out and keep fans connected without live concerts and tours.
Socially conscious artist and advocate Nomis hasn’t let quarantine stop him from doing what he does best. He took it upon himself to learn even more tools to support his music and recently released a new EP and music video.
A press release introducing Nomis’ latest work said as much:
Nomis has always functioned as a sort of Swiss Army Knife creative. From producing, writing, DJing, mixing, and more, Nomis has his hands in all facets of the music he shares with the world. There is a level of thought and intentionality that goes into his entire body of work. But on his new project, “LOT”, Nomis decided to change as much of his creative process as possible, just to see what the results would look like.
“LOT” is the first project from the Oceanside native that he did not produce a single song on. Furthering the process change, Nomis listened to each individual instrumental and then proceeded to begin writing. In an attempt to showcase his raw thoughts and expression, he engaged in no prior song conceptualization.
“LOT” is the summation of Nomis creating in a fashion both unpolished and unfiltered.
Jeremiah Bligen of NFTRY and Sareem Poems of the legendary LA Symphony crew lend guest vocals to the album. KDaGreat handled the production side of things.
LOT is available on all streaming platforms.
