As a child, Mo Baig always wanted to live life on his own terms. As the 20-year-old looks back on his past, he realizes a huge part of wanting to forge his own path was realizing he didn’t really feel like he related well to his peers.
“From a young age, most of my friends were taught they had to study well, get a job, and settle down,” says Mo. “But I never thought that life was for me.”
While his friends would dream of having office jobs that would keep them occupied for the next 30 years of their lives, Mo dreamed of having full control of his own time. He wanted to travel the world as he pleased, while making money online and sharing his music to the world.
Fortunately, Mo had an outlet for his unconventional thoughts and dreams: his music. Through lyrics and melodies, Mo spoke his truth.
The kind of messaging he wished he got as a child became the center theme of his songs. These include messages of hope and recognition for those whose idea of success is happiness and not status.
For Mo, writing music was therapeutic. He was simply translating onto paper the same exact words he wished someone else had told him while growing up. Little did he know, his music would go on to inspire an entire generation who were made to feel like they were wrong to dream of a different path.
Now, whenever a member of the “lost generation” — a Gen Z-er, as we’re familiar with — messages Mo on social media to thank him for his music, he can’t help but return the gratitude. He thanks his fans for sticking around, being who they are, and for motivating him to write more songs that could resonate with an entire generation.
After all, the biggest inspiration for his music includes every lost, yearning soul that dared to see things differently — the same way he did growing up, and the same way he continues to do today.
