This consists of quirky lyricism, a combination of honest, soulful and charismatic vocals, catchy melodies and an inexplicable je ne sais quoi. Jidé is a self-taught guitarist with acoustic guitar is the centre of all his writing and music. His music taste is quite diverse, so he has a wide range of influences and inspirations musically. These include Mahalia, Taylor Swift, Jon Bellion, Olivia Dean, Ed Sheeran and many more. The main thing for this artist is developing music that is authentic to him in every sense and this is also what he is drawn to most when it comes to music as a whole. With his first single “Rooftop” recently released, Jidé is looking forward to releasing his follow-up single “You’re Not Special” which is a punchy, catchy but meaningful and reflective follow-up to the chill sounds of Rooftop. Jidé describes You’re Not Special as a song that’s about getting over someone who needs to get over themselves. It’s a “let them know!” song. He dreams of appearing on Colors or NPR’s tiny desk one day, as well as featuring in a Disney film and an Anime one day. Safe to say, Jidé is excited to take what he feels is the next steps in his musical journey and has a lot of very big goals
