D.V.O is bringing his own style of pop music to the masses. Find out what all you need to know about this artist from when he sat down with BareBones Ent!
BS: What is D.V.O to you?
DVO: D.V.O stands for “Driven to Victory by Originality” – it simply means being who you are and not copying anything or anyone else. My artistry came to me in a dream…I didn’t know what to call myself as an artist. But the name just stuck and I think it has a nice “ring” to it.
BS: What do you hope people to take from your music?
DVO: An outer body experience. A feeling of “what did I just hear? (In a good way) I want my music to take people out of there reality for that moment. I sing my truth and some people will be shocked.
BS: How would you best describe the type of music that you make?
DVO: I call my sound “Fantasy pop” but it’s really just a sub-genre for POP. I like telling stories, and creating visuals that are cinematically beautiful.
BS: If you could have created any song in history. What would it be and why?
DVO: UMMMMMMMMMMMM. HAHA…..wow! That’s a hard one….ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Maybe “You’ll be in my heart” by Phil Collins. That’s one song out of millions I would do ha ha. I’m a huge Disney fan so when I saw Tarzan the animated movie and heard the song, I fell in love. It has such a good uplifting message to it! I love songs that uplift and give people hope. We need more of that.
What is your typical song writing routine like?
Answer: I’m weird; I don’t think I have a routine? I actually write better when I’m upset or sad…I don’t think I wrote a song out of happiness. But I do like to go to Coffee Bean!! It’s awesome and I’m a regular so they always make my drink without me saying it ha ha. I sometimes write 5 songs at once! It just depends on my mood and if I’m inspired.
BS: If you could only play one song to introduce someone to your music. What song would it be and why?
DVO: I have a song titled “Home” that I think will touch people. It’s a ballad, it’s raw and deep. And has that magical feel…but that’s a hard question! NOT FAIR!
BS: What are your current goals in the near future for your music?
DVO: Currently, I’m about to release a yummy treat for you all SOON! And it’s titled Origin of Times it’s going to be a FREE downloadable cd! It’s kind of like a mixtape but with radio quality. I’m excited! I’m hoping to start doing shows and promoting the cd and introducing myself to the world. A dream goal would be to score a Disney live action film! And work with Tim Burton! I want him to direct all my music videos ha ha!
BS: What are you working on currently?
DVO: Putting finishing touches on Origin of Times. It’s very special to me; I wasn’t signed when I created this body of work. It was just me and my producer Matthew Nelson! And we just created music! It’s a beautiful piece of work (I think) I hope everyone else thinks so too May 10th!
BS: What is the best way for fans to reach out to you?
DVO: I control all my own social media! So I do write back! There are many ways – Instagram.com/storyofdvo, Facebook.com/storyofdvo, Twitter.com/storyofdvo and my website will be re-launched soon! It’s www.storyofdvo.com
BS: Anything else you would like to add?
DVO: Thank you guys at BareBones Entertainment for interviewing me! I can’t wait to reveal my music to the world soon! STAY TUNED!
