Today we’d like to introduce you to Lvrd Daphne.
Lvrd, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My story totally begins when I started becoming super-duper self-actualized at a young age. I was about two years old when I could recall having vivid memories that made me think outside of myself. Ever since a I was a young, I’d been hypersensitive or “empathic’ as some would call it today. I used to lucid dream a lot before I was even four and to a lot of people, or at least to me, that’s crazy! I felt almost psychic in a way because it felt so abnormal to be able to be so aware of my environment/surroundings.
This really shaped who I am today as a person because it made me a dreamer in so many different aspects. I feel like a visionary in all that I do because since a baby I’ve always felt so different. That’s pretty much how my newest project came to be, ROGUE.
Growing up with this very keen sensitivity made me question so many things. I mean the universe… its crazy amazing right? Space has always been a force that inspires me because there is no clear answer. It leaves you to question and wonder, challenge and embrace. I’ve always felt like a “glitch” in the world. The one that didn’t belong, the rebel, the anomaly.
It wasn’t until I started making music that I realized that there are so so SO many of us that feel that way. We’re all inherently lost, all seeking connection, or love. I feel like we feel closer to this when we do things that make us feel like we have a divine purpose and making music and creating art is what does that for me.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Wow, I mean the biggest challenge for me was getting over acceptance. NOT EVERYONE IS GOING TO ACCEPT YOU!!!! I still am me, and if someone doesn’t like that then hey, it’s their loss. Getting over that initial fear has got to be the most important lesson I’ve learned through all of this. Everything else comes easy when you’re confident in your natural abilities.
Lvrd Daphne – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I think I specialize in good nature aha. Just bringing people closer together through influence and art. I’m also super into structure and I think that plays a lot into my creativity because it brings a necessary balance to my chaos.
I’d say I’m def known for my powerful vocals and mean clothes game. I mean half my outfits I customize or make myself, so when I started getting recognized on platforms like Instagram, it was just because i was ending up on the Discover page so much. The more I posted the more thousands of views I would get, brining attention to my brand.
I also feel like going on tour in 2018 was crazy because it was my first time really stepping outside of my zone and just going for something totally crazy and big like that. So yeah, that was fun.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success is simple. Success is feeling successful.
