Rhythm and blues, better known as R&B, is a musical genre that began in the late 1930s and peaked in post-WW2 to the early 1960s. Characterized by a typical dependence on the liberal use of a backbeat and lyrics and melodies that are often sad, R&B persists as one of the most popular genres in today’s music. Didda Joe is a singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer bringing forth a new wave of classic R&B, reintroducing elements that are not found in modern R&B.
Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, the multi-talented musician aims to bring a fresh new feel to live music and a signature twist to R&B, rock, pop, and soul music. With his high-energy live shows, this singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer hits the crowd with a nostalgic, edgy, driving, and soulfully smooth sound reminiscent of the classic stars but is purely Didda Joe.
Didda Joe has very recently signed to JV Inc by Oscar “Ofoesho” Roberts and Juvahn Victoria. He is the future of music and the art of the soul, and it is no exaggeration to claim that he is a talent set to take over the world. Major players in the entertainment industry have acknowledged his skill. He has ongoing collaborations with Grammy-nominated Ayo, who is also the producer for multiple top billboard artists.
The modern R&B artist brings back the sultry vocals of an emotional decade with a young, fresh, and sultry twist that has become such a hit that his musical compositions have been featured in music shows on VH1 and WE TV. With notable performances and working alongside major stars, Didda Joe is steadily rising to stardom as he gains fans from coast to coast.
This singer/songwriter creates most of his music from end to end, as he records and mixes them himself. Inspired by musicians who strived for individuality and growth, the multi-talented artist enters every new venture with grit and a desire to grow more than he currently is. He fully integrates this mindset into his life and hopes to inspire his fans to do the same.
“Let who you are shine,” he says, as he urges other aspiring creators to gather the courage to introduce themselves to the world. “Never give up on your journey to greater things, even if it seems long.” Didda Joe has noble plans for aspiring artists once he has established himself as a major player in the music industry: to guide and help them stand on their own feet as artists and help them navigate their way to success.
Didda Joe attributes his love and passion for music to his mother and father, a singer and a musician respectively. Growing up in a household filled with music integrated the beauty of music in his mind, and he later picked up instruments such as drums, piano, bass, and guitar, all of which he is proficient at now. His biggest love became the guitar, and it has become a go-to for idle times. Success for Didda Joe is not only in achieving his own fame and popularity and helping others do the same. Instead, it is in instilling a love for music in his daughter, as his parents did for him.
