In a world craving transparency, where young people are marching in the streets demanding the right to it, alternative artist Didirri captivates his peers with his magnetic charisma and honest approach to songwriting. His music openly explores subjects, questions and themes many people in their early twenties are encouraged to avoid.
Didirri Peters grew up in the coastal Australian countryside, in the town of Warrnambool. He began writing songs as a challenge to himself to be honest. His candid storytelling comes from wanting to face the truth, however beautiful or confronting. His poetic lyricism began as a private conversation, that now brings hope to his listeners.
Live, the experience is electric. Confidence without ego, whether together in silence, erupting in singalong or feeling the joy of a moment, although personal, it's always a shared moment. Didirri sings with both conviction and vulnerability and together strangers are connected to think and feel, be open to good, the fun, a surprise, the grey, raw or dark, always gently inspiring hope against all of life's intricacies.
