Singer-songwriter Durand Bernarr marches to the beat of his own rhythmically cool drum – and it’s infectious! Billboard named him an "artist to know" in 2019, Lena Waithe called him one of her favorite singers, and he’s racked up more than 10 million views on his YouTube channel, where audiences can’t get enough of both his covers and original music.
Born in Cleveland , Ohio, and based in Los Angeles, Durand has built a career performing with Erykah Badu and collaborating with the likes of the Internet, Anderson. Paak, Ari Lennox and Teedra Moses. His larger-than-life range is wrapped in a buttery-smooth voice that leaves you wanting just one (or one hundred) more sensual vocal runs.
Durand's first EP, Sound Check, was released to accolades in 2016, and in 2019, Durand co-produced and featured on “Freefall,” a track on KAYTRANADA’s album BUBBA, which has already accumulated more than 2 million plays on Spotify alone. Now, in the words of Billboard Magazine, “Durand Bernarr is bringing his silky pipes to the forefront,” with his highly anticipated new album to be released in Q2 of 2020.
Fans old and new can expect Durand's velvety vocals with rich lyrical storytelling, representing the core of who Durand Bernarr really is - a musical coming of age, free of shame and guilt, and embracing every piece of his true self.
