HOT 95.7's #ArtistOnFire for March is 22-year-old Iowa City artist, Novet.
Novet began writing music at age 10 and began recording at age 12. He wasn't allowed to curse when he started recording which forced him to find creative ways to express himself without using profanity which has carried over into all of the music he creates today.
In this interview, Sean Strife and Novet talk about his creative process, how album art influenced who he listened to growing up, the best hip-hop show he's ever been to, his favorite Netflix shows and video games, and his new project "T.I.M.E." His album release party is at The Yacht Club in Iowa City on March 30th.
Listen to his single "Stranger Things Love" below the interview. "Stranger Things Love" will be featured in the After Hours Mix at midnight on Friday Nights with DJ NYJ and Saturday Nights with DJ Commando.
