We had the good fortune of connecting with Nox Holloway and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nox, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
In college, most of the free time we had from class was spent creating in the studio or in our dorm rooms. It was our hobby and what we wanted to be doing before it became our career. Over time, specifically once we graduated from school and became artists full time, we really had to find structure in our day-to-day in order to keep our creation fueled. We have an extra bedroom in our house that is our studio, so our process can stay fluid by being able to get to work easily whenever we feel inspired.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We’ve always prided ourselves on making everything about the music from day one. Since we each have a different approach on music and creation, it helps us attack our songs from more angles and evaluate our art quite thoroughly. This led us to having a large output of songs, one of which got in front of our now-manager through a close collaborator. Becoming sustainable, career musicians had been our goal since then, and we’ve had to learn plenty of patience and perseverance in the early stages. We want the Nox Holloway brand to offer a certain depth to music, and provide an escape for anyone that may listen. We care about the experience that is listening to our music, which we consider while making any and all decisions in our songs.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The hiking is some of our favorite between the views of the city and the natural terrain. We also love Catch in West Hollywood for a drink. The open ceiling really nice to see the sunset! Walking around Highland Park hitting all the coffee shops is a great way to start the day too. We’re both big baseball fans, so a game at Dodger Stadium is a must if it’s during the season. Besides that we try to be in the studio when we can. Some of our past co-producers work out of LA as well.
