ENSPIRE Contributor: Aricka Croxton
Nolan Star enters the Atlanta music industry to continue the legacy of Black Excellence in his family. Star comes from a talented and gifted family. His father is songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kent Wade who has worked with music legends, Diddy and Teddy Riley.
Wade had introduced Star to music at a young age and been supportive of Star’s musical aspirations. Since entering the music industry, Star has already created a buzz around his name. The pop sensation’s growing fanbase is grabbing people’s attention with his unique sound and majestic vocals. Star’s new single utilizes a blend of enchanting punk, pop, and hip-hop sound that showcases his vocal range and songwriting skills.
When asked about his inspiration for ‘Run Home,’ Star said, “I was moving more outside of hip hop with this track; I felt like prioritization of mix-matching genres would leave the impression that I’m a multi-faceted music artist, which would give me more breathing room to keep experimenting with more sound palettes. So punk, hip hop, and pop strands were wrapped all over this track, and we stuck with it. That’s how ‘Run Home’ came about.”
