D.D Dumbo


D.D DUMBO, known to his folks as Oliver Hugh Perry, is an astonishing and highly original songwriter from regional Victoria who bowled over fans and critics alike with his globally lauded debut album Utopia Defeated. His self-recorded debut EP, Tropical Oceans (2013), a lo-fi four song-set of blues-laced, deconstructed pop, which announced Perry as an exciting newcomer fluent in a language all his own but it was the ten tracks on Utopia Defeated that cemented his reputation as one of the most uniquely talented artists around. The album won the prestigious triple j Award for Australian Album of the Year while mesmerising single Satan took out APRA’s Song of the Year. D.D Dumbo’s world class band has sold out shows across Australia and Europe and we’re excited to welcome them to NZ for the very first time.
