Every hump day, we will be giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the 2014 Vans Warped Tour from the hottest artists on the road. Today, we give you an exclusive interview with Nick Santino.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Nick, he was the frontman in the band A Rocket to the Moon from 2007 to 2013. After ARTTM announced their indefinite hiatus in 2013, Nick decided that he still wanted to write and record music. Nick went on to tour under his own name and hit the 8123 recording studio in Arizona to produce his solo-debut album with a little help from The Maine’s Pat Kirch. Big Skies was released in May.
On Warped Tour, the 26-year-old singer/songwriter rocked out to “The Story You Should Tell,” “Bad Taste,” “Long Way Home,” “Can’t Say I Miss You,” “Going Like Yesterday,” “Never Coming Back,” and a cover of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ “Even The Losers.”
Moments before performing on the Acoustic Basement Stage at 2014 Vans Warped Tour on Sunday afternoon (July 6) in Holmdel, NJ, Nick hung out with us backstage! In our interview, Nick opened up to CelebSecrets4U about what its like coming back on Warped Tour without his band, his solo-debut album Big Skies, where we can see Nick in the future, and secrets.
