INTRODUCING: No Native and his latest single supporting WCMX

We're Going To Make It is the latest song from songwriter Anthony Marshall and new artist on the block, No Native. The empowering track was inspired by the rise of the sport WCMX (a trick sport done in wheelchairs). WGMI is all about not letting anything, even your own fears, hold you back.

The music video featured rising WCMX star, Lily Rice who believes that there should be more facilities for those who want to tackle the sport. There is only one WCMX friendly skate park in the UK and this single aims to raise awareness for a campaign that Lily is backing. Find out more about Lily's journey here.

This wonderful initiative is backed by a brilliant and upbeat track that I'm sure you're going to love. 


No Native is an artist with plenty of potential, heavily influenced by the likes of Yungblud, Justin Bieber and Linkin Park. I think he was the perfect fit for We're Going To Make It and I'm looking forward to hearing more of his music soon.

I wanted to hear more about where the inspiration came from when supporting Lily's campaign, the message they'd like you to take away and what they most enjoyed about the process:

Can you introduce yourself? 
 
Hi all. I’m NoNative. I was born in Russia but grew up in the UK. I feel very fortunate to be where I am and do what I do best - write music, feel music and sing my songs to anyone listening. 


Where did the inspiration for WGIM come from? 

Me and the team have come across Lily accidentally and were immediately captivated by her story. I was so impressed with how brave she is, how passionate and humble she is that we decided to reach out and talk. The covid situation hit me hard on a personal level and lots needed to come out. But merely saying it wasn’t enough. When I saw what Lily did overcoming her limitations, I thought if she can make this, I can make it. Gonna make it. The title was born and from there it went. 



Do you have a key message that you'd like people to take away from this song? 

What was born is an anthem saying 'We’re gonna make it'. This song is an invitation to face one’s limitations and challenge them full power. Having had a rather difficult childhood I’m about empowerment and WGMI is exactly that - an empowering piece of music that wants to unite people of all kind in the betterment of their lives. 


What was your favourite part about this project? 

We live in a realm filled with distractions. Find time to catch your own breath and feel yourself. 


If you could give one piece of advice to my readers, what would it be? 

 ...their lives and making what seems impossible possible. Lily being living proof with her famous flip.
