Ever wondered what a week in the life of a millennial is like, or how people within our age group lead their lives in other countries? Take a peak into the life of New Zealand-raised Syrian refugee, Vivian NOURI.
If you’ve heard the track ‘Where Do We Go From Here’ chances are you know who Vivian NOURI is. The artist is making waves in Hollywood, having worked on vocals for Hollywood film ‘Daddy’s Home 2’ and with Brian Kennedy, Grammy award-winning producer to stars such as Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Read on to to get a peek into the life of a millennial living in New York.
I actually made a lot of fun and non-healthy eating choices with one of my good friends Gashi, who is also an amazing artist and songwriter. Saturdays are for catch-ups, so we went to the famous L&B’s Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn (for my first time and Gashi’s 1000th time – haha) and ordered a pizza pie. We had to get milkshakes and drove around every borough of New York listening to all the new music we made. That is our way of catching up!
Headed straight to my studio session in New Jersey with producer Koko. There the whole day, exhausting but these sessions are my main focus right now. When I’m in the studio I like to zone out, so I don’t usually multitask, to preserve my creative space.
Woke up at 7am, went to the gym for about an hour and headed off for meetings. By the time my last meeting was done it was about 8pm. I got on the phone with my marketing manager Keisha to go over some things and headed home to listen to some beats sent to me by various producers. Finished the night off writing – my idea of unwinding after a long day.
Slept in a bit, until 11:00am. But this was only because I was up writing until 2am. I make sure I’m up to date with everything regarding promo for my release and made sure I responded to as many of my supporters as I could. My workout was later in the day at around 5:00pm. Had a couple phone interviews today as well and went back to finishing a song I had started writing the night before.
6am start, followed by gym, home, shower and a Billboard interview! I made myself avocado on toast – my favorite breakfast lately – as I knew I’d be busy until lunch with press shots (photoshoot) and the interview. Today was eventful. I had lunch with my manager and her friend who works for The NY Times, and we ordered a bunch of unhealthy food that I absolutely don’t regret. Had a couple of phone meetings later in the day and had to race across town to get to my studio session with Producer Illmind. I can never go to sleep early, so I stayed up and watched an episode of Friends until I crashed.
Terrible snow storm in New York today – my manager Maria and I sat in traffic for about an hour while on our way to the studio, but I used that time to write more music – quite productive. I was in the studio for about five hours, drove home and started rehearsing for my performance in NYC taking place in a couple weeks. Can’t wait for it!
Woke up, worked out, and went through my socials to make sure I was responding to the amazing support I have been getting from people all over the world who have listened to my debut single Where Do We Go From Here. Two hours of phone interviews with some amazing journalists, and I ended the rest of the day writing.
