  • (1888PressRelease) December 10, 2013 - The day is November 26, 2008 and Val is sitting in the TAJ MAHAL hotel as the terror attack which would claim the lives of 164 people across Mumbai is about to begin. As the first gunshots explode a few meters away, he starts running in the opposite direction only to find himself injured and quickly unable to walk anymore. Hopping on one leg, Val manages to find a place to hide from the shootings.

    In his own words: "As I remain there the whole night, unaware that a few floors above parts of the hotel are already in flames, I can only think of 2 things: that my 2 year son will never have memories of his father and that no one will ever hear the songs I have kept in me for so long".

    In the early morning, as Val finally finds his way out of the smoking building and into the light, he promises himself these steps will be the first ones towards something different.

    "In many ways recovering from the operation is the easiest part. This night has planted a seed inside my soul that nothing can root out, forcing me to face the dreams I let slip away long ago".

    Reinvention has been a long time coming, marked by the adoption of a little Indian girl, a move back to Europe and several jobs. And weighted down by more breakdowns and relapses than he cares to remember.

    But the songs of BARON ZERO are finally here to be heard. Like Lenny Kravitz meets Robbie Williams with Dave Gahan looking over their shoulders and a younger Jimmy Page dj'ing in the background. Full of a devil may care attitude which cannot quite conceal the fact that something is broken deep inside.

    And knowing full well that since we all have to go down someday, we might as well go down in style.

    "Great stuff, congrats!" - Derek SIVERS, serial entrepreneur and founder of CD BABY.

    "I like it, good funky track, it's got a great groove" - Stuart EPPS, producer and engineer (Elton John, Led Zeppelin and Robbie Williams) on 'No easy way' .

    "Excellent. You don't need to read the rest of this review, just download and enjoy. Although classed as a rock track this mixes a lot of rap style with some pop elements. In fact it just oozes style everywhere. () Bags of style, bags of energy, bags of artistry... Bag it" - Unsignedmusicreview on 'Eiffel Power'.

    "The bass and horns are awesome. That bass player is a f. bad ass. The song is executed perfectly: very funky for sure" - gatorlipsmurphy @ GarageBand on 'No easy way'.

    BARON ZERO is the brainchild of Val, a French born musician now living in Austria.

    His first EP "No easy way" will be released on January 7th, 2014; get your exclusive digital copies ahead of the release at
