The global music scene is brutally competitive, and with tens of thousands of new songs released every day, it can be hard to get people to listen to your music, especially as an up-and-coming artist. But this hasn’t stopped Dabeau from making his mark. At just 19 years old, Dabeau is a popular name in the music industry who is sharing his unique sound with the rest of the world and revolutionizing the global music space.
According to Dabeau, his goal as an artist is to use his platform to motivate his listeners as he creates memorable and timeless songs.

However, Dabeau’s journey to the top hasn’t been easy. Dabeau has had to overcome numerous obstacles, from people not understanding his vision to finding his sound and rising above the competition in the music industry. He explains that by coming from such a rough neighborhood where many young people actively engage in criminal activity, it was hard to keep sane and follow his passion, especially with some of his friends already joining the street life.
Most people didn’t understand Dabeau’s dreams and goals as they felt that a music career might not be what was best for him. Dabeau notes that as someone who was just getting started in the industry, it was also challenging to find his sound. Even so, Dabeau didn’t let these roadblocks stop him from living his passion.
He invested in his dreams, experimenting with different sounds, which helped him find his own style. Today, Dabeau’s unique signature sound has enabled him to cement his place in the industry. Dabeau is leveraging his skills to create timeless and inspirational songs that perfectly tell his intended message and encourage others to fight for their goals.
His unique sound and impeccable voice have seen him gain a lot of recognition, with his songs receiving thousands of views. Dabeau’s single “Alienated” has been trending on TikTok and was streamed over 100,000 in less than a week. Dabeau has also recently released his track, “Heart of Stone,” which is available on all streaming platforms.
While he hasn’t been in the music industry for a long time, Dabeau has already solidified his spot. But his journey in the field is far from over. He says that he has many projects lined up. Dabeau is looking to help other artists get started by sharing what he has learned so far. He is also working on new music and collaborations with notable artists from Amsterdam and beyond.
