Tonight's queer artist feature is @iamherdd with their fabulous new single "I Got You"
''elastic electropop that brings to mind early Gaga with shades of Daft Punk circa the new millennium'' (Billboard, 2019)
Ask rising popstar HERDD who he is and he will likely show you the small, scribbled tattoo on his inner right wrist that reads only 'I am HERDD'. Ask him what this means and he'll explain that HERDD is a celebration of life, love and queerness and that through his music he feels heard. And the music stands as a testament to this. It is unapologetic and proud, brimming with brash beats, grand vocal harmonies and hooky melodies that will have you humming for weeks to come.
In prior musical projects, HERDD has played shows to crowds exceeding 1400 people supporting major acts such as Example, Tinchy Stryder and the KaiserChiefs (DJSet), he's performed at festivals such as Bestival and Blissfields and received national BBC Radio 1 airtime in the UK courtesy of DJ and supporter Rob Da Bank.
As a ceaselessly creative type, HERDD has also published a book that hit #1 in 6 Amazon charts during launch week, founded a successful mindset coaching business and even took a 17 country world trip in 2018 and vlogged the whole experience.
What you know about yourself is what matters most. At times, it may feel like you need to hide, change or pretend to be something you’re not. But you have to remember who you are. I am called HERDD not just because my music is heard but because I believe I am part of a herd. We are part of a community of loving and passionate people who are going to make the world a better place. You are not alone, it gets better and never forget, you’re always welcome to be part of the HERDD!
