At just 20 years old, Dave has quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting new talents.
While yet to release his debut album he has already been tipped by the BRIT Awards as their youngest nominee of 2018, followed by a win at the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards for ‘Best Contemporary Song'. His award show nods follow the success of his second EP Game Over, which included the smash hit ‘No Words’ alongside ‘Question Time’ the song which scooped him the Ivor Novello award. Similarly to Dave’s 2016 debut EP Six Paths, Game Over showcases the intelligent wordplay and socio-political commentary that he has become synonymous with, balanced alongside infectious melodic hits and featuring production from the likes of Fraser T Smith (Adele, Stormzy), Steel Banglez (Mist, Krept and Konan) and Dave himself.
The palpable sense of excitement around Dave has earned him famous fans from Hans Zimmer to Drake, with the latter remixing Dave's breakthrough track ‘Wanna Know’ in 2016. Subsequently 2017 saw Dave selling out two back-to-back London shows in less than five minutes, before embarking on sold-out tours across both the UK and Australia. Such demand was proved apt with both The Times and The Guardian awarding his London shows 5 stars. 2018 has seen Dave embark on a sold-out tour in the US where he has been hotly tipped by XXL and Billboard.
