We really enjoyed chatting with lead vocalist of Farewell, My Love, Chad Kowal whose big heart we are blessed to have in our movement. Farewell, My Love embodies rockin’ individuality and we are happy to share their music and positivity with each of you. We were really excited to catch up with the band who just returned from their U.K. tour where they played to sold out crowds. Enjoy getting to know these awesome musicians!
What are your top 3 favorite songs?
Believer by Kill Hannah, Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance & Mr Brightside by The Killers.
If you could travel into any musical time or place, where would you go and why?
If I could be apart of any time in music it would be right where we are now. I have the option of revisiting the past or enjoying the present & I really enjoy that.
If you could invite 5 people to dinner (present or past) who would they be?
Tim Burton, Nikki Sixx, Davey Havok, Eric Nally & The Rev.
Do you have any hidden talents, hobbies or interests?
I used to write comic books when I was younger, other than that I mostly just try to learn as many instruments as I can.
What is your favorite highlight/moment in your music career thus far?
Playing many sold out shows on our UK tour with AshesToAngels this past July was totally surreal to me, & I am truly grateful for the opportunity.
What song best describes the soundtrack of your life?
The beauty of music is that I can relate many songs to many different emotions that I am going through. I don’t know if I could pick just one song.
What’s your favorite part of performing? Connecting with our fans.
What’s your ‘go to’ shower song? Rubber Ducky by Burt & Ernie.
What message do you want to share through your music?
As cliche as it has become to say, I want to make people feel like they’re not alone in feeling the way they do. I want to be their light in the darkness.
What would you say to someone going through a rough time?
I would say that there is a positive to every negative & that everything happens for a reason.
If you had only 5 minutes to perform one song that could leave a great impact on the world today, what song would you perform and why?
Any of our new songs because I feel that the messages would help lift people up a lot.
Just for fun … fill in the blanks!
Without music, I would be nothing.
Music is everything to me.
My hero is Davey Havok.
Life is what you make it.
How are you rocking your voice for good?
I try my absolute best to convey a positive or helpful message in my bands music. My hope is that it creates a sort of domino effect & continues to help more & more people.
