Music is one of humanity’s universal languages. Music’s influence on people is highly essential as it mirrors one’s culture, beliefs, and principles in life. Music is also a form of expression that transcends boundaries such as race, gender, and culture. Music brings light to the world, and it is this very reason that Didda Joe decides to pursue his musical journey.
Didda Joe originally comes from Indianapolis, Indiana, home to unique and notable music genres such as jazz, punk rock, hip-hop, and indigenous music. Didda’s musical roots run deep as he was born to parents who are both musically inclined. His mother was a singer, and his father is a great musician. Having grown up in a musical household, it was inevitable that Didda Joe picks up this love for music. He was encouraged to play musical instruments such as drums, piano, bass guitar, and acoustic guitar at an early age.
Aside from being an all-around instrumentalist, Didda has great vocals as well. He also creates his music because he dabbles in songwriting. Furthermore, he records and mixes his original compositions and performs them in live acoustic sessions within the city.
His musical style is a new wave of R&B, aiming for a nostalgic, moving, yet edgy feel to it. This style is very similar to that of Prince, D’Angelo, Musiq Soulchild, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, Nirvana, and more iconic musicians whose techniques were forgotten in modern R&B music. Didda’s new music is a fresh reincarnation of the 90s R&B magical soul. Bringing back the sultry vocals of an emotional decade, Didda’s new modern twist on a nostalgic era is young, fresh, sultry, and ingenious.
Didda’s talent has reached prominent people as he collaborates with Ayo, the musical producer of Cardi B, Meg Thee Stallion, Lil Wayne, and Drake. Didda’s musical compositions have been featured on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop and WE TV’s Growing Up Hip Hop. Didda Joe is now signed to JV Inc!, which is owned by former artist/musician Oscar “Ofoesho” Roberts and Juvahn Victoria.
Didda is slowly gaining a formidable audience from coast to coast through his notable openers in music festivals and shows, helping pen a record for fellow Indiana native Ro James and Grammy-winning crooner Miguel working with artists such as Master P, Shafiq Husayn, Columbus Short. Armed with striking stage presence and highly electrifying musical performances, it is undeniable that Didda Joe’s raw musical talent is commendable and distinctive. Truly, he is a talent set to take over the world.
His main goal is to bring a fresh, new feel to live music and create a unique twist or sound to R&b, rock, pop, and soul music. This quest for originality is inspired by talented musicians who strived for individuality and growth before his time. Through his music, he wants to be able to leave the same legacy. He wants to prove that musicians can still be creative and innovative while keeping up with today’s modern musical blast.
