Nicko Ostby & Skylar: Happy to Get Up Today


“Happy to Get Up Today” is pure, warm, and simply beautiful.

“I want to make raw, authentic music that really makes people think.” – Nicko Ostby

Nicko, welcome back to VQS! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
I make all types of music and have a passion especially for hip-hop and catchy beats that also carry a powerful message. Skylar @chosenbeforetime makes music that is very transcendent and she doesn’t like to specify what type of genre that would fit in. Very beautiful music, make sure to check out her other songs!

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration for this song?
What was your inspiration when you were writing this song?: I was really struggling to find hope during these difficult times, then I finally had a revelation….listen to the song to find out what that was!
What is your favorite part of the song?
My favorite part about this song is just the heart behind it. I want to make raw, authentic music that really makes people think. So thankful for my music-partner-in-crime Skylar Reign who always cooks up magic with me in the studio.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming shows?
Who is ready for new music? I have a hip-hop banger that I’m about to release. I also have about 7 other songs fully written and waiting to be released! Skylar also has a lot of new music on the way! You will not want to miss out!
