What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.

I used to beatbox when I was younger all the time, I just loved being able to create different sounds and create beats for rappers to rap on. One night I was beatboxing for Brydon, he was rapping for ages then after he finished he told me I should write a 16 and since that night I’ve been rapping non-stop. Me & Brydon decided to come together and create NQH in 2014. We are solo artists but together we form NQH, which is the label and face of the brand. NQH stands for Not Quite Human, that’s what we are, NQH till I die.

Provide us with some info about your latest release…

Keep It Moving is my sixth single of 2020. A hard-hitting banger with bars!! It’s out now on all digital platforms so make sure you give it a listen.

Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?

Music-wise Brydon has always inspired me & pushed me to be more creative.

In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?

It’s really hard to breakdown my sound into words, my sound is just me. As soon as the song starts you’ll know it’s Broughton. I’m a unique artist, I don’t sound like anybody, so you can’t really compare me to anybody. All of my songs are just a piece of me so you’ll get to know me more, the more you listen.

Please name your 3 desert islands albums, movies & books…

This is one of the hardest questions and my mind changes all the time but as of right now I would say… 1. 50 Cent – Get Rich Or Die Trying 2. Nipsey Hussle – Crenshaw (Mixtape but we’ll count it) 3. SZA – Ctrl

Movies: Training Day, LIAR LIAR, Fast & Furious

Books: The Secret, Jay-Z Decoded, The Alchemist

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?

Hardest question because they are both completely different but if I had to pick, performing live wins. Nothing beats performing & seeing people feel your music.

Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?

I don’t have one sorry 🙁

Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?

R.I.P Joyce, purely because it’s my deepest song. A song I wrote after my Nan sadly passed away due to cancer. I wrote it years before I even released it, because honestly I never thought I would be able to record it & release it. Recording that song was the hardest thing for me to do. Even after I recorded it I debated releasing it for ages, until I come to the conclusion that art is meant to be shared with the world. People needed to hear the raw emotion and heartfelt lyrics I wrote. I knew people would be able to relate. It’s out on all digital platforms so you can listen to it, just be emotionally prepared that’s all I can say.

Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?

At this moment in time I am just releasing singles. My next project will be produced by the same producer, so once I find that person a project will be in the making.

Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…
