You obviously have proved everything and all your dreams have become reality, when you see these upcoming acts like Justin Bieber or boy bands like One Direction out there, what would you tell them to be around 20 years from now like you are?
Nathan Morris – I think its just consistency! We are in a day and age were people come and go and people come around everyday of the week. You could be the biggest thing on earth next month and then be gone in two months. For us, consistency is everything, as long as we are consistent and stay on people’s minds and do all the things we want to do, I mean its sometimes hard to weed through the forest as an artist especially with all the forms of entertainment that are around nowadays that people can choose from, its good that people can see us in Vegas for our residency and pop up here and there and do different things and be very consistent in what we do then we will be happy.
Shawn Stockman – Always connect with history, men and women that did this way before you that you can refer to and learn from and study. I was just talking to my son and he wants to be a performer, so I told him to go to YouTube and pull up Michael Jackson, pull up Marvin Gaye, pull up Bobby Brown, all these artists that have made a headway in this business and copy it! Copy what wad great… period! Then in the midst of all that you will find your own way. I mean its all about the greats first! For you to become great, you must study the greats!
Will you be performing at any point on stage with 98 Degrees and NKOTB instead of just by yourself?
Nathan Morris – We don’t know yet, this is our first week, i think as we go along and get a little bit more comfortable, the opportunities are open for different things, so we are not close minded at all. And it would be cool but we have to make sure it works for everyone and make sure it fits in what we would like to do.
