DVSN, Canada’s sensational R&B artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Crescent Ballroom!
dvsn (pronounced division) was formed in 2015 and is a duo composed of vocalist Daniel Daley along with producer and songwriter Nineteen85 (aka Anthony Paul Jefferies). They began their musical journey by releasing 2 songs (The Line and With Me) in September 2015. Their sound straddles the line between mainstream and indie as well as between classic and futuristic. They explained the meaning behind their stage name as “It's about us not conforming and being okay with being different…the division between us and everything else.” They started to get mainstream recognition when With Me was played on Apple's Beats 1 radio during the seventh radio show presented by OVO Sound (Canadian record label co-founded by hip hop artist Drake). Their next 2 singles (Too Deep and Hallucinations) came out in December 2015 and boosted their popularity even further. Their work was praised by the media, with Toronto’s Now Magazine saying, “For long-time R&B fans, dvsn's warm, cascading gospel harmonies vividly evoke the 90s silk-pyjamas moment, while their coursing electronic rhythms, reverby guitar, undulating sub-bass and trappy hi-hats nod to the broodiness and toughness of contemporary hip-hop.” They released their debut studio album (Sept. 5th) in March 2016 and it hit #7 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
