Earlier this week I had the opportunity to speak with Canadian singer/songwriter Nelly Furtado while she was on tour across the country.
Don’t miss your chance to see her when she makes her stop in Montreal on January 30th at Theatre St Denis! You can win a pair of exclusive backstage passes AND tickets to her show here
Find out what she had to say about her current tour, her incredible fan base and what she’d still love to cross off her bucket list.
CONFRONT: How are you!
NELLY: I’m great! I’m just in Thunder Bay right now.
CONFRONT: Oh you’re in Thunder Bay? Did you have a busy day?
NELLY: Well I just had sound check, meet and greet and then I have my concert.
CONFRONT: Is that a routine day for you?
NELLY: When you’re on tour that’s usually how it goes. It’s sound check, meet and greets and then the show and sometimes there’s an after show meet and greet.
CONFRONT: How has this tour been for you so far?
NELLY: Really fun! Really Canadian. We’ve stepped out and done some winter things like ice skating and playing in the snow. It’s actually been really fun. It’s been really awesome and diverse crowds coming out to see the shows as well. It really puts things into perspective. After 12 years of making music it’s nice to have people who still want to hear your songs.
CONFRONT: And you’ll be in Montreal next week!
NELLY: Yes! At the St Denis Theater.
CONFRONT: Do you have a favorite thing about playing in this city?
NELLY: I really love the Biodome and exploring Old Montreal. I like all the variety of the restaurants and the small businesses.
CONFRONT: You mentioned how going on tour and seeing all your fans kind of puts everything into perspective for you. Do you have a moment that stands out in your mind the most from your career so far?
NELLY: I would say probably releasing an album in Spanish. It was an independent project and it was a great learning process. It created this whole new aspect for my career.
CONFRONT: It must have opened new doors for you.
NELLY: It did! It introduced me to a whole new set of musicians and a new musical team who really welcomed me. I would say that had a big impact for me.
CONFRONT: Is there any news for a new album in the near future?
NELLY: I’ve already started on a Spanish follow up as well as an English album. I’m also just creating some beats and working to record a full length in Portuguese.
CONFRONT: Oh wow! There are more doors to open that way!
NELLY: Exactly. I’m very excited about finally recording a full length in Portuguese. The timing is perfect now. I don’t like to do things until the time is right and usually I just kind of know when that is and I just do it.
CONFRONT: Fans have a lot to look forward to.
