Introducing: Davidda

We've got people wanting to learn more about this lady ever since we started spinning her debut single, Kindle, so we've put together a bit of a lowdown!

 Davidda is an indie artist based in Tamaki Makaurau. Adopting her hometowns reputation for zest, this Paeroa-bred wahine brings the same effervescence to her music and songwriting. She says: "This song was me exploring the mind of a person wresting with their intuition. Somethimes we get stuck, or distracted from the things we want to do - or the things we know we're designed to be doing. Sometimes, you need external intervention to help lead and refine your balance. Your hope lies in looking at Jesus, and letting him guide you."
