“Sometimes you gotta think the unimaginable…then chase it by any means. ‘Cause the only thing you got Is you, and your wildest dreams…” – SD

ABOUT SD THE GOD

Born in London, UK, he hails from the DMV (Washington, DC) and has roots in his motherland of Freetown, Sierra Leone. In order to inspire, he draws his inspiration and desire to create cross-dimensional music from artists including but not limited to Davido, Hardy Caprio, Emmerson, and Aṣa. 

SD has an upbringing quite unlike many others. Born in London as a result of the displacement of his family during the Sierra Leonean Civil War, he grew up both in the United Kingdom and United States. This cultural mix has not only influenced him, but has also helped create his unique sound. 

He began exploring music at the early age of ten, performing in musicals and elementary choirs. This early start drove his passion for music, leading him to perform on some of the world’s biggest stages, including The Kennedy Center Honors and TNT’s Christmas in Washington alongside names such as Justin Bieber, Diana Ross, Janelle Monáe, and Jennifer Hudson. In all that he does, he remains humble, paying homage to his background and the cultures he derives his music from.

SD has already organically achieved 20k+ streams across platforms and released his debut EP ‘Coronation’ in 2021. We’re excited to see SD go from strength to strength as he continues to share his personal and unique vision through more releases in 2022.

‘Believe’ is slated for release on July 22nd, 2022
