De’vide: From The Voice UK To The Sound of Purple Skies

August 12, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

The UK duo De’vide release their latest single with ‘Purple Skies’.

Lex Flowers and Barny Holmes worked with Producer Kayzee (winner of Rudimental’s ‘Baby’ competiton) to create a ‘crisp fusion of R&B/Hip Hop with a Funk/Acoustic edge’ and the result has listeners ready and waiting for their upcoming EP release.

Currently working on their EP, new single and music video ahead of their tour of the UK and Holland this Summer, the duo who are managed by So Solid Crew founder Megaman, collectively showcase their talents as a singer, songwriter, MC and guitarist.

Making it to the live shows and battle rounds with Team Jessie on The Voice UK season 2, together they brought their unique sound to millions of television viewers and have now released their self described ‘smooth mellow 90’s style R&B influenced track fused with fresh 2014 Hip Hop style beats and bass’.

With credits in performing at the launch show for London Fashion Week, supporting the Brand New Heavies on tour, as well as Jessie J, Naughty Boy and Wiley on the festival circuit, with dates with Katy B and Tinchy Stryder yet to come, De’vide are definitely ones to watch for the remainder of 2014.

‘Purple Skies’ is available on iTunes today.

Lex can also be heard on ‘Truth Be Told’ with Richard Osborne.
