We are Nadia, Jonathan, Adam, Phil.
When did you start?
Nadia: There wasn’t really an exact time I started singing but I started taking singing more seriously when I was about 10.
Jonathan: I started playing guitar in 7th grade, so 7 years ago, and started singing 5 years ago during my freshman year of high school.
What do you hope to achieve through the Kollaboration experience?
Nadia: I am real excited to perform with my friends Jonathan Phil and Adam. This experience is probably going to be memorable to me since I’ve never done anything like this with them. I’m looking forward to getting our names out there as well!!
Jonathan: I hope to show the world my passion for music as well as the uniqueness of our group. We’ve all been friends for a long time and music is just something we love to do together and that brings us together. One of the coolest and most challenging aspects of our group is the fact that all of our styles are so different: when we get a song that satisfies all of us, it sounds awesome, but achieving that is extremely difficult.
On a day off, you can find me…
Nadia: Hanging out and goofing around with my best friends.
Jonathan: Probably at church or at the beach. I work at a youth group in Glenview and spend an enormous amount of time with them, and not because I’m forced, but because I really do enjoy spending time with them. Also, a favorite hangout spot of mine is the beach. You can swim, play sports, relax, have a jam session–what’s not to like?
People would be surprised to learn that…
Nadia: I love to read.
Jonathan: My other passions include science and languages. I am currently a Chemical Engineering and Spanish double major at Northwestern and most people think I’m crazy, and while it is really hard to keep up with the work at times, I love it (most of the time).
Our biggest inspirations are…
Nadia: My parents.
Jonathan: John Mayer, musically. In general… my old youth pastor, Jason Park. He helped me through a lot of rough times and really helped me to grow up.
If we could perform with anybody in the world, they would be…
Nadia: Jessie J.
Jonathan: John Mayer. Second would be Gabe Bondoc or Ben Rector.
Chicago and Glenview, IL
We will be singing, beatboxing and playing instruments.
