Nicky Buell Drops Queer Pop Anthem “Boy Crazy”

Seattlebased pop artist Nicky Buell is quickly establishing himself as a leading voice in the queer pop scene. He wants the LGBTQ+ community to feel seen and heard. His bullhorn of choice: music. As he puts it, “I just want to normalize a boy singing about another boy in music. I dont hear enough songs about boys being in lust over other boys on the radio, or in music enough. We need more representation; I want to be that representation for other queer people when I didnt have that myself at a younger age.”

Nicky has collaborated with iconic artists and producers throughout the Pacific Northwest including Phil Peterson
(Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey), Matthew Wolk (Dempsey Hope, Sam Lachow), and Seattle
based popstar Anna Thompson, his childhood best friend with whom he released Thirsty.’ It was through this song that Nicky would publicly come out at the age of twenty. He followedThirstywith the releases of singlesBromanceandMoonboyoff his debut EP Spongy Emerald Prince,’ a project that honors and chronicles his triumphs and heartbreak during his first year as an openly gay man. Having launched his project just four months ago, hes already received press from major publications on the West Coast like RageRobot and The SpokesmanReview.

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

Mel the Prophet- The 5 things I wish someone told me when I first started: 

Expect no support from the people you want or expect support from. I was always a good person and a person who was “friends” with many people, not just around me or in my community but all around and thought I was going to get support from them because I was doing something good.

INVEST IN YOURSELF: Even though I did invest in myself, I was expecting others to invest in me because of the ideas I had and how beneficial they would be for others.

FOCUS ON THE BIGGER PICTURE: As much as I thought I was focusing on the bigger picture, I actually wasn’t. I was rushing the process to become what I knew I am and I would attempt to force myself and my vision onto people without trusting the process of just doing the work day in and day out.

KNOW WHEN TO SAY NO!: Being a good person can be tiring when you’re attempting to help anyone and everyone. Some people do not align with your mission or purpose. I would give my hand out to anyone who asked for it and then be in a situation where the person or people would just attempt to take advantage of my kindness.

Feel Awful

Vancouver, Canada artist BAINS. has shared a new single called “Feel Awful”. The second single from his upcoming album Punch Drunk, this self-produced offering contains emotive sonics and relatable lyricism- making for an evocative and memorable listen.

Drawing the listener into the song’s atmosphere as it builds, the production here is sharply-crafted and vivid.
