PRESENTED BY JAMES MAAD

"El hombre del pelo afro"

Nacido en el sur de California, Dakil es un artista pop moderno inspirado por el blues. Su música tiene el poder de cautivar a cualquier público; ya sea tocando con un grupo como creando piezas con diversas melodías y ritmos desde cero en directo, le basta con tocar una de sus enigmáticas, pero cercanas combinaciones para ganárselo.

Sus composiciones, fruto de sus propias observaciones y experiencias, van desde el oscuro blues cargado de sentimiento en «Far from Grey» al ingenio de «Never Trust a Scorpio», una canción alegre que parodia los estereotipos asociados con la astrología y que muestra una extraña capacidad para insultar a todo el mundo en tan solo cuatro minutos. Dakil no duda en mezclar géneros y se siente seguro alternando pop y rap, los cuales combina con el magnético carisma expresado través de su distintiva voz, sus letras conversacionales, su prolífica habilidad a la hora de tocar la guitarra y la imprevisibilidad que le caracteriza.

En su carrera, le han inspirado artistas como John Mayer, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Frank Ocean, D’angelo, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, N.W.A., The Strokes, Fall Out Boy, ABBA, America, Snoop Dogg, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Katy Perry y muchos otros.

Dakil se graduó en Lingüística y español por la Universidad de California: Los Ángeles. Desde entonces, no ha parado. Ha recorrido Europa con su guitarra y, actualmente, se encuentra en Madrid grabando su primer disco, «Out of Nowhere». Esta primavera, verán la luz dos canciones por mes, que se podrán encontrar en las principales plataformas online. El tan esperado estreno oficial de «Out of Nowhere» será en verano de este mismo año.

"The man under the afro."

Dakil is a modern, blues-inspired pop artist from Southern California. Whether he is performing with a full band or live looping hypnotic layers of melodies and beats from scratch in real time, Dakil’s music can captivate an audience of any size by striking a unique combination between both mysterious and totally relatable.Inspired by his observations and experiences, Dakil’s songwriting varies from the emotionally charged dark blues in “Far from Grey” to the brute wit in “Never Trust a Scorpio,” an upbeat pop song that playfully mocks the stereotypes associated with Astrology, while showcasing a rare ability to insult every person in the room within the span of four minutes. He doesn’t hesitate to cross genres, switching confidently from pop to rap while maintaining a magnetic charisma through his distinctive voice, conversational lyrics, prolific guitar skills, and trademark unpredictability. Dakil draws inspiration from artists such as John Mayer, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Frank Ocean, D’angelo, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, N.W.A., The Strokes, Fall Out Boy, ABBA, America, Snoop Dogg, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Katy Perry and many more…
Aside from his music, Dakil earned his Bachelor’s degree in Linguistics and Spanish from the University of California, Los Angeles. Since graduating, he has been on the go, traveling Europe with his guitar. He is currently recording is debut album “Out of Nowhere” in the beautiful city of Madrid, Spain. “Out of Nowhere” will be released to all major online platforms in a series of monthly two-song pairings starting this Spring 2018 and culminating in the long-awaited Summer 2018 official release."
