NAS 10 Questions with Rob E Rush

This time on the NAS 10 Questions we get to know Rob E Rush, from New Jersey by way of North Carolina and currently residing in NYC.

Rob E Rush is sort of a cape. An outlet to remember that inner child. Alien. Trendsetter. Punk. Experimental. LOUD. Forbidden. Restricted. BITE. Music with perspective.

This East coast native merges style, flare, and BASS! Infectious in every way with an outer space zip code.

The track "I'ma EAT" is featured in the New Artist Spotlight Family of Playlists.

Link To New Artist Spotlight Playlists:

1. Tell us a little about where you are from and what you are currently doing.

Originally, a Jersey boy. Currently, I live in New York City. I'm a singer/lyricist with a very unique perspective on music. So besides a 9-5 to support my dreams, I've been focusing on creating an experience of my art.

2. What inspired you to start playing and making music?

Honestly, Ive always been into music. My family used to make us do little concerts and dance-offs to keep us out of trouble. But ultimately, when I first got into Selena I was floored. Her voice, her presence, It made me want to sing. So around ten I knew what I wanted. Also, to mention I was big on writing poetry. So, This talent kinda drifted me into writing songs.

𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?

Did I say Selena? lol. Some of my current influences are Missy Elliott, Iggy Azalea. SirMixalot, Fatman Scoop, Bree Runway, Dawn Richard. Way to many to name but ultimately no one sounds like me. Even though they have influence me thoroughly my sound is my own.

4. What are your goals in the music industry?

Notoriety. I just want my flowers; my recognition. I want to be amongst the greats in a writing session or just creatively exchanging energy. So my main goal is to be seen.

5. Tell us about your creative process when you make new music.

It used to be a drink to get the ball rolling lol. But honestly, The track speaks to me first. Then, a melody. I probably will record the melody so I don't forget. At this stage words aren't important. So, It's usually alot of mumbling lol. BUT, there's always a word or a theme that may stick out and thats what I build the lyrics around. Sometimes a song can take a day to write. And, I like to actually write and record as I go. Other times, days. I gotta let it breath and come back to it with fresh eyes.

6. What is your all-time favorite song?

The Rain- Missy Elliott. First off there's a version that Tina Turner Sings, ICONIC. nd, that song broke down so many barriers in the rap game when it came to what was considered hip/hop.

7. What is the best advice you have either given or received in terms of music?

I didn't become musically free until I changed my perspective. The best advice I have given is greatness can happen overnight but happiness only comes to those who seek it.

8. Proudest accomplishment?

Releasing my first single this year. I did it the way I wanted to do it and it didn't matter if it wasn't a hit because I knew in my heart it was! I will also add learning to walk again. I got into an accident a few years back and broke my left ankle and right heel bone. It revealed this determination I never even knew was there.

9. Just for fun! What's been your most embarrassing moment so far?

So I was performing "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas" it was my solo. My choir put on a touring christmas show that one year. Our last stop was my actual high school. I told the director I was very sick and couldn't sing the solo. Which was true. I suggested we cut it, as I'm already straining my voice to sing along with the choir. He;'s like "NO...when ur sick you have the best resonance it's gonna be great. And, he's going on and on, and im like I dont think I have it in me. Of course, he's like you got this. It wasn't about me being nervous. I was actually really sick. So U got up to sing and I get to the chorus and my voice cracks. Not like a quick lil cracked almost a full 8 secs. the reactions on people's faces. What made it worst is I just started the damn song. I never let that go. lol

𝟭0. Tell us about your lowest and highest points in music so far.

My lowest and Highest points stems from the same thing. I struggle with severe anxiety and sometimes it is very easy to self-medicate. I developed a drinking problem trying to control my panic disorder. I gave up on music. It wasn't important to me as much. That anxious gut feeling absorbed My thoughts 24 hrs a day. Long Story short, I had a very bad withdrawal episode cause I switch meds and I couldn't keep any food down let alone alcohol. It was a wake-up call for me. One of the worst experiences in my life. It led me on a journey of acceptance and dealing with my problems. Once I treated my Panic disorder and depression, I didn't need the alcohol anymore. There was this happiness of a feeling I haven't touched in a very long time. I was very humbled to get another chance, because I was so far deep into it. Yet, music came rushing back to me like it was just waiting there for me to get it together. So my high point. Releasing music this year and not being afraid of the reception or review. and 1 year sober !

So glad that you found a new perspective. Fame may be nice, but it can get in the way of the goal of making great music.
