Music Interview: Nature Ellis speaks about Awaken
In this music interview Jamaican singer and song writer Nature Ellis speaks with us about his recently released album, ‘AWAKEN’ and also shares a little about himself.
Please introduce yourself to our audience.
My Name is Andre Ellis, but mostly know as Nature Ellis which is my Artiste Name .
What were you doing before you became a singer?
I did a little carpentry, a little farming and a little electrical installation, but my last nine to five job before doing music full time was at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Montego Bay. I was born a singer; it was just a matter of time before it would have been known .
How does what you did helps with what you are doing now?
My jobs before music or I should say before I started doing music full time helped to groom I into a more discipline individual, e.g. to reach work on time, etc.
At what time in life did you fall in love with music?
I was always in love with music as far as I can remember. The first and second time I performed for an audience I was nine years young. It was at a school concert and also at a street get together. I also use to attend church with my parents. brothers and sisters in which I always full joy watching the gospel singers performances. I also remember one day I went with my father to an event to sell plums, which he picked from a tree located at the back of our house. While at the event there was a showcase of artistes, I was very entertained, mesmerized and motivated.
Was there ever a moment when you felt like giving up on doing music?
There are times when adversity will come our way and it might come to your mind to give up on whatever your career or calling is. But the love and passion for what we do shall let us overlook the distractions. Once you understand your purpose and accept it in the cycle of life and it’s in line with your passion, you will be self-motivated.
‘AWAKEN’ is out and spreading love and conscious vibe in the atmosphere. Tell us about the album.
My album: but would rather say the album which was inspired for the world. The album AWAKEN is a sixteen-track album which was released on the seventh (7th) of February and was launched on the seventeenth (17th) of February.

When you write a song can you tell at the beginning if it’s going to be a hit?
People have many different meaning of what’s a hit. In an industry such as the one we are in, a hit can be from the weakest to the strongest song, once being promoted and exalted enough. But true hits are from the almighty God, which contain truth and light to the ones in the dark. It speaks to your heart and your conscience, once you hear it. So a hit doesn’t necessarily have to be on the chart, the best ones stay in your heart .
What is your favourite and least favourite part of this line of work, and Why?
My favorite part is doing the actual music, because it’s from the heart, pure and upful, but the part that involve politics, dishonest business and selfishness, that’s the part I don’t like.
How has coronavirus affected you and how are you coping?
Corona virus affect all of us in one way or the other. It definitely causes a lot of events to be cancelled and will affect us as artistes and promoters on a financial level.
I hope it inspire others in a way that we all can realize we can practice the action of love more, because we are all just human and are all connected after all.
What words of encouragement do you have for your fans as the world battle this virus?
In this time I don’t only reach out to my fans, I want to take this opportunity to say ,this is not the time for political preferences; this is the time for us to unite as one people and fight against all corruption in high and low places.
What is the impact you want to leave on the people who listens to your music?
The impact I want to leave on people when they listen my album is the realization that God is love. So we need to take the time out to forgive and make it right within ourselves.
What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?
My advice for someone who would want to follow in my footsteps is to take all the good example you can from me, but always remember we all have our own journey and steps to make in the sand .
Finally Nature, where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I only work one day at a time, doing my best in the cycle of life. I am in the car, but God have the wheels, and nothing is too good for him to prove now and in the future .
Thanks for your time Nature Ellis and I wish you the very best on your journey to achieving your goals.
Thanks for having me also, let’s Keep AWAKEN 🙏🏽
