David Boyd, born in Copenhagen Denmark to an American father and Swedish mother received a blessing of several influences of music from his father that listened to rock and his mom that was pop centric. This ended up leading to the perfect blend of what is now the sound of David Boyd’s music.
It wasn’t music that began David’s artistry but rather dancing. His connection to music through dance provided him an “instrument” for self-expression that channelled his emotional state into his moves. Through dancing, David began to work with Danish and Swedish producers as well as musicians. It was in this realm that some of the writers he worked with that didn’t know English, would ask David for help with common American expressions and words.
As time passed, David began to be drawn to art of writing music and lyrics leading him to take a deeper dive and move to the United States. It was here David would form the popular rock alternative band, New Politics.
After signing a major record deal, numerous hits and touring, time slowed for the world and New Politics with the global pandemic.
David did not let this stop his writing. He took the downtime to create a solo project with music that was authentic to his new life as a father of a beautiful daughter and tap into a level of self-expression he had never done before.
“This project has given me the ability to fully express and explore all the musical styles I’ve always loved and draw from my current life experiences, “Boyd explains. “No genre is off limits and I pull from every influence I’ve ever had.”
The culminating result will be new music for fans that will span everything from rock to hip hop and take them on a musical journey through the mind of David Boyd.
David will be dropping his first single “Stay or Walk Away” via BCH Records on June 4th.
