NighLawn is an ambitious female artist coming out of Arlington Virginia, at only 23 she just released a project called Purple Elixir. Having support from her team consisting of her childhood friends and Mychelle, who is also a rapper herself. She’s been working on this project since her birthday this past March. “It took longer than expected because I was still holding onto a negative relationship with someone and my mood would always lead me to write a new song, therefore replacing one on the project.”
She tells me how Purple Elixir came about by saying, “I thought about how I felt being in love, kind of felt drunk in love at times, or I’d actually make phone calls or send out texts to the person I wanted to be with due to being intoxicated. Purple is stemming from the purple syrup, you know like Lil Wayne and then drink. Elixir is a potion, hence the fact why I was head over heels with someone who didn’t treat me right.” The project was initially about something else, another idea, but after her birthday, her relationship took a turn and ended. She says she “reworked the project and subconsciously started to write all my songs from the heart. I never had a vision for “Purple Elixir” but once I wrote 30 songs I narrowed it down, and came up with the title as I listened to the lyrics. I brought it to life just by trusting that my emotions would carry me far enough to make a dope first project and I was right, just had to believe in my story telling ways of music.”
