London based singer/songwriter Dire, is breaking into the UK music scene with his distinct blend of soulful simplicity and easy listening. His songs are inspired by life experiences and listening to a range of eclectic artists.
Dire’s sound and vocal versatility instantly draws listeners to his music. He is a passionate and deeply soulful singer-songwriter. A vivid storyteller weaving evocative soundscapes as he navigates listeners through his life journey, Dire discovered his voice (and his potential in song writing) during a difficult period in 2008. In this, he found encouragement and comfort through singing. Dire’s walk with God is a central and recurring thread. He is always keen to share his passion as his infectious lyrics bring a thought provoking message of hope amidst struggle.
His debut EP ‘Nowhere Else’ was released in February 2016 and has been making waves with two #1 hits (including ’Inspiration’ and ‘No Delay’) on the UK Christian Chart for the months of March and October 2016. He also recently released a video for the track “No Delay” which was filmed by Sofar Sounds London and has featured on notable Radio stations across the UK and globally.
Dire featured as a supporting act for the UK sold out tour of Grammy Award Winning Artist Pastor Charles Jenkins, back in May 2016. He was recently invited to TBN UK to film an episode of TBN Meets presented by Leon Schoeman, which was first aired on 29th December 2016.
