UNITED STATES (ALABAMA) – Team oikotimes had the pleasure to interview the next AMERICAN SONG CONTEST participants. The duo NI/CO (Dani and Colton) warmly welcomed our invitation and chatted with Fotis.
Dani Brillhart and Colton Jones make up the pop duo Ni/Co and will represent Alabama in the competition. While the two live in California now, they both spent time learning about themselves and their music in Alabama. Jones spent his younger years growing up in Montgomery and it was there he found his love for music.
Years later, Brillhart and Jones played their first gig together at The University of Alabama. From there, Ni/Co was born.
From original songs to unique twists on popular cover songs, the two have since gained a popular following on social media with over nearly 300K subscribers on YouTube and over 20k followers on Instagram.
We discussed their AMERICAN SONG CONTEST entry which is titled THE DIFFERENCE and got to hear a few lines of the lyrics.
When it comes to the State of Alabama, besides the kindness of the people we are sure when we get our butts there we will love the white barbecue source (and I am counting on that Colton!)
It is also nice to hear that the duo has been to the island of Corfu, in Greece, and this means that they know about GOOD Greek Food.
The amazing duo certainly won our cheers for the upcoming live show in which they will appear. They couldn’t reveal in which heat they are in, but they are in the show where 12 (and not 11) acts will perform! We are sure that won’t be a hurdle for them because they rock!
They also deserve our respect because when they were told that ASC comes from EUROVISION, they did their own digging and found the European event, awesome!
