There is already quite a buzz around Zimbabwean born singer and songwriter, Adrian Dzvuke. He is an award winning RnB and afro-fusion artist killing it Australia. His start story is close to unbelievable of how him and his friends believed so much in their abilities that they saved up to start a band and the journey has been amazing ever since. This dedication with his friends comes from the musical DNA of this father who was heavily invested in the church band. Moving to Australia at a tender age of 12 didn’t stop him from following his dream and closely paying attention to the Zimbabwean local musical scene. Fast forward to 2020 he intends to work with seasoned artists such as Takura and has profound respects for veteran dancehall artist Winky D.
GreedySouth describes Adrian’s sound as ‘a blend of Trapsoul and Afrobeats, Bryson Tiller and Mr Eazi’. He has a special trait in him of moving against the tide, having performed his first sold out show during the Covid-19 pandemic, fighting the tide if you ask me. He is equally at home on stage or with his band, exceptionally delivering his soulful mixture of R&B and AfroBeats. Adrian and his band have become West Australian’s most in demand emerging acts as evidenced by performances at Perth Festival, Groovin The Moo, WAMFest and Wave Rock. During Nasty C’s Australia tour, Adrian was one of the opening acts.
Listening to his music one can pick the influence of live instruments. On his rise he was inspired by Wizkid, Childish Gambino and Drake to pen down his own work. Adrian made a name for himself with the track Confidence which got him on the radar of music labels and major publication in Australia. He has follow up singles such as “Bad Like Riri” which have been also well received. He bagged a song of the year award from West Australian Music for his jam titled ”Bad like Ri Ri”.
His social media spaces are evidence of how much on an energetic performer he is making his stage appearances memorable. Adrian’s recent run of singles such as ”Bad Like Ri Ri”, “Confidence” and “One time” and ”Darling” have enjoyed airplay on Triple J and Beats 1, with placements on major editorial Spotify playlists including ‘New Music Friday AU & NZ’ and “Urban Flavor” amassing over 250 000 streams.
