Born and raised in Leytonstone, Murkage Dave spent his youth listening to garage and R&B followed by formative years spent in Manchester absorbing The Smiths and Joy Division. This disparate mix of influences has shaped a defiantly British pop blend, with his observational storytelling continuing to attract fans globally. He has collaborated with Caroline Polacheck, Tricky, Mike Skinner, Evidence, AC Slater, Jaykae, Skepta, Nekfeu and more.
Murkage Dave’s listeners have formed their own community, organically grown from a connection with his music. This connection compels his fans to share the music with others, resulting in a cathartic live show experience where the whole audience unites. Over his past two albums, he’s gained support from Pharrell Williams, Young Fathers, Iggy Pop, Romesh Ranganathan, Pitchfork, The Fader, Highsnobiety, Complex, The Face, BBC Radio 1, and more.
