Now living in Tokyo, indie-folk singer-songwriter Diego Davidenko was born in Argentina and moved to New York at age nine. The transition to America, along with his subsequent moves around the country–from New York to Iowa to Texas to California, and now to Japan - helped form the unique insight that he fashions into highly personal songs. His songs are aesthetically influenced by artists such as Bright Eyes, Elliott Smith and Belle and Sebastian, but have distinctive melodic and lyrical twists all their own.
Raw, honest and thought-provoking, Diego’s earnest and heartfelt songs weave through the range of human emotions and experiences: nostalgia, love, isolation, hope, remorse, frustration, and a yearning for meaning and human connection. With catchy and unexpected melodies, they invite audiences into the palpably intimate heart of an artist who writes and sings to make sense of and find his place in the world.
Diego released his sophomore album, In an Empty House, on June 2, 2017. Recorded over a warm fall weekend in a quiet, empty house in the canyons north of Los Angeles, the introspective and bare songs delve into themes of loss and impermanence, seeking to find warmth and comfort in them. The release was followed by a 35 city nation-wide American tour.
Now performing regularly in Tokyo, Diego has toured the United States and has played venues as far flung as Mexico City and his birth country of Argentina. His music has been featured in independent films including The Strongest Drug and Cures Anything. His debut album, It Isn’t Home, was well received by press and audiences and received airplay at national and international radio including KCSN (Los Angeles), KCSC (Chico, CA) and Radio Estación Sur (La Plata, Argentina).
