Dahvid Slur

Dahvid was born in Trench Town, Jamaica and raised in the community of Arnette Gardens. Here he was immersed in the music and legacy of the heartikal homeland of reggae. Born David Dockery, both Dahvid’s parents were major influences on his passion for music, as were his brother and neighbours. He quickly learnt to play the Guitar and the Steel Pans and became increasingly influenced by the reggae and dancehall he heard around him on an everyday basis.

He attended Trench Town High School where he became an active member of the choir further developing his passion for music and his vocal skills. Amongst his greatest influences Dahvid emphasises Sizzla (who he had the opportunity to perform with), I Wayne, Chronixx, Protoje, Damian Marley and the legendary Bob Marley and the Wailers alongside other heritage artists including Gregory Isaacs, Marcia Griffiths, Beres Hammond and Alton Ellis.
