How Baroness' John Dyer Baizley Channels Anxiety, Tragedy Into Art, Music

In Revolver's new video series "Rise Above," artists open up about the personal and creative adversity they've faced and reveal how they turn such struggles into art. In Episode 1, we sit down with Baroness frontman, and visual artist, John Dyer Baizley for an intimate conversation about two pivotal times in his creative life: the precise moment he abandoned his day job for a life of artistic "commitment to overcommitment," and the devastating bus crash that nearly ended his career. Baizley illustrates the themes of relentless "energy, ambition and willpower" that propelled him through both challenges, and how stress and anxiety fuel the creative fire inside him.
