Born: February 28, 1974
Daddo singer/songwriter/guitar player/producer is a man who is also known as DRIFTKIKKER.
Born into artistic family, Daddo was encouraged to be creative from an early age. Being surrounded with artists from different backgrounds and disciplines through his childhood helped him set fundaments in his quest for goal and ideal of self-expression. This eventually leads him to enter the art school at the age of 14 where he studies to be a sculptor, subsequently he starts playing guitar learning his first chords and chops. Being self-taught he develops his unique concept through listening and visualizing a wide variety of music ranging not only from jazz to punk, but also different musical styles from around the world. Applying elements of these styles to his creative process and blending it with lyrics which are based on personal views and observations of daily life, while describing the world through urban philosophy that evokes emotional challenges in the listener, marks his now trademarked music style....

“Enormously interesting, totally exceptional music, entirely varied...”

“Soul. Jazz. Cool analog funk. And an ultra heaping helping of infectious groovedom - that’s the Driftkikker steelo”
- Rafe Gomez a NYC’s DJ and Radio Host on various major jazz radio stations (Smooth Jazz, WJSJ/WSJF, KJJZ/K Jazz) - USA.
“Coming of the light” is very relaxed album with trip-hop, jazz and rock influences… swinging beats, cre- ative programming and ambient sounds. Whole has enough sharp edges and original angles to avoid estab- lished paths of the “Lounge”.”
- FRET magazine
“This album will be easy to fall in love with!”
- DJ Suefo Radio Tilos in Hungary
