David Baow: Interview


The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength


Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

I’m a beautiful mess. I am a porcelain vase, that has shattered on the floor and that ended up glueing itself back with gold. I’m nothing at the same time, but that makes me everything. That’s what I am.

Why do you do what you do?

Because even if I wouldn’t be doing it, I would do it. It’s like a language. It’s like something I wouldn’t be able to say in French, Spanish or English. Sometimes, that’s just how I talk, how I feel. It makes me feel alive. Every passing day I wake up, I feel there’s an emptiness. I feel like I’m dead, but I’m still there. When I finish a song or hear something great it makes me feel alive and can even bring me to tears sometimes.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

When I realized the impact music could have on the human mind and after I lived a big separation with an ex. It made me realize that what you love can go in an instant and sadly, it’s not always your fault. I impose myself a state in which I can never forget what I’m here to change.

Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

The greatest thing I had to overcome was myself and I had to help myself. When I went through the situation that pushed me to do what I do and be who I am today, I lost everything: faith, hope, happiness. If I hadn’t pushed myself through that, If I hadn’t gone crazy and accepted it, I probably would of killed myself, and I tried.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

I have inspired many people directly, in many different ways, for example for advancing through life. I have a lot of people who don’t necessarily like me, but the effort that I put in what I do and what I do itself, gives them a reason to respect me. That has inspired me… everyone that is a poet or a philosopher. I’m more inspired by what a certain person can say in a moment or weakness or truth, than by someone itself. You can get the biggest knowledge by the most random person and that is because the person was just there, living something at the right place and time.

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

I have hurt a lot of people because I was hurt. That’s the biggest regret I will ever have. I learned a lot from it because I lost a lot from it. I gained a lot from it too, but I think what I gained made me understand I had to regret those choices.

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

I have four albums coming up. One is finished and we are just waiting to put it out, we have the videoclip for ‘Just Chill’ with MiQ coming out soon, two albums with PSTV and two other albums under the G2G imprint (no affiliation with the label).

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Follow your heart no matter where it leads you and don’t ever let nobody tell you what should make you happy or what shouldn’t. You could have laws, constitutions and reasons to be, but at the end of the day, that’s all irrelevant to an individual. You can’t accept to be unhappy just because who you are or who you want to be doesn’t fit anyone else that you.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

I wish I’m going to make it. I want to be up there soon, so people can hear me.
