“He's somehow made it even more of a gut-puncher, if you can believe”

“Primed to be one the biggest breakout acts this year”


“Here is a very contemporary kind of budding star. d4vd has already cracked the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Alternative/Rock charts — though that probably undersells how famous he is”


“d4vd is writing a new kind of love story”


“Don’t let his age fool you. The musician is mature beyond his years (both in the personal and artistic sense). He has a unique ability to make the most inexpressible emotions palpable”


“Loads of star power…melds genres to fit his vision, with a bit of emo, Y2K retro-rock, and classic soul. Let’s keep a close eye on d4vd”


“The sounds he creates – often worlds apart from each other – are an exercise in dramatics, a kind of stagecraft where his imagination dictates the weather, the narrative and emotion of it all”

‘Notes From A Wrist’ continues to broaden multi-dimensional artist d4vd’s scope of influence. While much of his lyricism shares the same somber tenor, he deepens his sonic experimentation – this time with lofi R&B instrumental and rhythmic, percussive vocals. Directed by Erik Rojas, the music video shows d4vd’s life flash before his eyes as he has visions of a lost love.

“I wrote ‘Notes From A Wrist’ about a childhood friend that struggled with depression,” d4vd says of the inspiration behind the track. “It describes the pain experienced in an unstable home and something a lot of people in my generation experience and can relate to. The sonics are very stripped back, and the vocals almost sound like a looming voice in your head.”

The song follows his recently released debut EP, Petals To Thorns, a masterful nine-track project with breakthrough hits including ARIA Platinum ‘Romantic Homicide’, a grungy, guitar-driven breakup anthem, ARIA Platinum ‘Here With Me’, a slow-building beachy ballad, ‘This Is How It Feels’, a narrative track with Icelandic pop-singer Laufey, and more. Following the release of his debut EP, d4vdcomplements the project with a follow-up EP The Lost Petals. The new EP is a collection of five songs that fit in the world of Petals to Thorns EP and serve as a continuation of that project. These songs represent a similar time in d4vd’s creative process that he wants to share with fans before moving into his next phase of music.

After his debut headline ‘The Root of it All’ tour earlier this year, which sold out within 30 minutes of going on sale and first brought his music to life, d4vd embarked on a follow-up ‘Petals To Thorns’ US & European summer tour. It also sold out entirely and took on larger venues, including three nights in New York at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Racket as well as two nights at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. The tour kicked off in Manchester, UK on May 28 at Deaf Institute before making stops in major cities including London, Paris, Berlin, his hometown of Houston, San Francisco, and Milan, where he also notably performed the same day during the entirety of Valentino’s Milan Fashion Week Show.

d4vd will also play a special ‘Pop Rising’ show presented by Spotify on September 6 at The Roxy Theatre. The show sold out immediately. He’ll also perform during both weekends of Austin City Limitson Friday, October 6 and 13 and Corona Capital on November 19.
