Dave is making big waves in music even though he’s still at college, where he studies philosophy and ethics, music and law. His biographical, heartfelt rhymes mark him out as a unique voice. “If I try to tell my story, swear down you would cry,” he raps on his breakthrough single “JKL + HYD”, “But all you need to know is I’ve lost every single man inside my life”.The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity for the 18-year old superstar in the making. Following a joint North American tour with AJ Tracey, an appearance on Drake’s More Life compilation, two hotly anticipated sets at SXSW and a sold out UK tour, last week saw Dave showcase his undeniable talents to the masses, playing “Picture Me” and “Wanna Know” on Later… with Jools Holland, which you can watch back here.
Inspired by artists like Pink Floyd and Hans Zimmer, the classically-trained pianist employs slower tempos and a broader musical palette than his UK rap contemporaries; bringing him to the attention of Drake, who remixed the song “Wanna Know” earlier this year.
He is currently working on a debut album with producer Fraser T Smith, whose credits include Adele’s 21 and Kano’s Mercury-nominated Made In The Manor.
