Bio

There's already quite a buzz around singer/songwriter/producer Adrian Dzvuke.

It was only just over a year ago that he started performing regularly around his hometown of Perth, Western Australia, and releasing music online. In that short time, Adrian has gone on to amass over 200,000 streams, play Groovin The Moo, WAMFest and Wave Rock festivals, as well as enjoy support slots for POND, Kevin Parker (Tame Impala), Stella Donnelly, Winston Surfshirt & Triple One.

Born in Zimbabwe, Adrian moved to Australia aged 12 where - in the finest R&B tradition - he began his music career singing and playing drums in church. Fast forward a few years, and inspired by the likes of Drake, Wizkid and Childish Gambino, Adrian started to write and produce his own tracks. A natural and energetic performer, the next move was to form a band with a couple of friends from Zimbabwe and make inroads into the live scene.

Equally at home onstage with his band or in the studio, his soulful mixture of R&B and Afrobeats has been gaining fans at every show and with every release.

His 2019 single ‘Confidence’ received attention from Apple Music Australia, Beats 1 Radio and French publication IGGY Magazine, while his follow up ‘Saturday’, featuring Perth's Mali Jo$e received national airplay on on Triple J Radio in Australia. Adrian's most recent tracks, 'One Time' and ‘Bad Like Ri Ri’ have seen a new level of success, with both receiving placements on major Spotify editorial playlists including "New Music Friday AU & NZ' and 'Urban Flavour', amassing over 150,000 streams between them.

Bittersweet listening in a socially distanced world. The perfect sweaty, summer grind.
