Aidan Nolan, who goes by LEECH, is from a small farm town in upstate NY. He started his music career in the summer of 2018. He said that he still feels like he's hanging on the outskirts of the actual music industry, "I’m tryna figure it out."
Aidan mentioned that he likes to try his hand at every art form. For a while,.he was taking pictures for artists in the music industry but kept feeling a draw to switch sides of that relationship. "Last summer, I just kinda said “f*ck it” and started making beats and putting together some semblance of music. It’s really just evolved from that."
LEECH said that his upcoming album is his favorite piece he has created so far, "there are some tracks on UNDERBITE that I’m really proud of." We also asked him how does the creative process go for him, his response was, " I play a beat over and over again...then just jump right in. A majority of my flows and lyrics are freestyled, I just have to do it yanno - usually nothing’s premeditated besides what vibe I’m going for."
Aidan's favorite part about being a music artist is being able to share it with his friends. He loves their input and giving them something they’d want to listen to on a daily basis, "that means the world to me."
One of our most important questions we asked was what would LEECH want his audience to know, he said, "I want everyone to understand just how new I am to this. I’m learning as I’m progressing and the support I receive from everyone is extremely motivating and helps keep me sane. If I was left alone with my music, I would go insane."
