VC's Geoffrey John Davies — "Born This Way"

Get an inside look at our CEO, Founder, and Editor in Chief Geoffrey John Davies as he shares his unique industry vantage point




One of the many things I love about Manhattan is the treasures of advice littered up and down the streets and avenues. 

Of course these three simple words, I spotted today in the Village, will forever be intrinsically linked with the hugely emancipating 2011 dance-pop anthem of self-acceptance, unity, sexuality, freedom, and individualism.

But for me, I think it should also serve as a reminder to all classical musicians, walking that sidewalk, that we don’t live in a one-size-fits-all industry so don't be afraid to step up and out and own your own piece of Gaga’s personal empowerment.

Each one of us is born with our own intuition and inner wisdom which to listen to, and that voice is there to guide all musicians to their sound, and with passion, optimism, hard work and tenacity to their own ‘right track (baby).’

One could only speculate where brilliant young musical visionaries Charles Yang and TwoSet Violin wouldn’t be today if they’d stopped listening to their inner voice and simply did what they were told.

There are many voices and words outside, but there is also another voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.
