120: Jonas Blue – Focusing on the Quality of Your Art

Creativity, Full Time Hustler, Mindset, Podcast, Weekend Warrior

I have a lot of drive and a lot of will power and I will stick to something and I will get it done.

Today I’m talking to Jonas Blue, a major recording artist in the UK. Jonas is known for a tropical house cover of Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car and his single Perfect Strangers, which hit double platinum in Australia. He started pursuing music at a very young age and has never looked back.

Jonas and I talked about his story and background, how he got started in the music industry, what his creative process is like, and how he goes with the flow. He also told me how he knows a song is going to be good, and why he sticks to his guns.

If you’re new to Nion Radio and want to join a community of creatives, join the Nion Life group on Facebook. You can connect with other artists and asks questions and join conversations for answers and inspiration. I’ll see you there.

I firmly believe that I’m going to be around in this business and passion for a long time because I love music and I love what I do – I live, eat, and breathe it.
