WHO IS DAVID GIVENS?
Vocalist and songwriter David Givens is a natural creative force and a boundary-pushing Pop/R&B/EDM artist. Gifted with a unique and versatile talent, David makes fun, engaging original music unlike anyone else on the scene. He began singing and writing as a child and began his life as a pro in 2015. He deftly blends the Southern Gospel influence he gained growing up in Green Pond, South Carolina with his Trinidadian roots and 21st Century pop skills into music that is his and his alone.
His most recent single is “Addiction,” which belongs to his four-part David World album series and is set to drop in October of 2019. Previous singles include “Crush,” “Pulse,” and “Welcome To The Show,” which are also included on David World. He has also won the Coast 2 Coast Live Columbia competition and been nominated for Best Indie Artist at the 2019 Bryant Paul Hughes Awards.
David is an intriguing and compelling performer with a positive energy inspired by legends like Prince, Chris Brown, Janet Jackson, Robyn, Peter Gabriel, and James Ingram as well as anime, video games, literature, and pop culture. He’s truly a man of the modern moment whose main goal is creating fresh experiences for his audiences and motivating others like himself who dare to dream out loud. “I want to inspire those of every nationality, ethnicity, body size, spirituality, sexual orientation, and ability,” he says, “I want to tell stories through music that are not only fun but insightful and honest.”
Like all great artists, David is unpredictable and driven to express himself in ever-shifting and honest ways. “What makes me cool is just being my weird, nerdy, smart, and black self,” he explains, continuing, “I don’t like hiding behind masks and lies. I want to show people the real and authentic me.” Fans in search of crisp, colorful new R&B that lives on the leading edge need to discover David Givens and become part of his upward climb.
