Believe Tour Crew Profile: Dirt

June 03, 2012

Since the Believe Tour has gotten started, many folks have asked about the new members of D’s crew. In this ongoing series, we’ll take a look at the people traveling with Darius to help him share his music and his mission. Next up: Dirt!

Find him on Facebook (and Soundcloud) as: Duddy Ken.

Near the top of his playlist: Breakeven, The Script.

Role on the crew: Producer / writer / rapper. Dirt performs with Darius during his shows on the Believe Tour. As producer, he also creates the beats for D’s songs, and he helps Darius write the lyrics.

Dirt is a true pro. He’s worked with Bubba Sparxxx, and his big-game experience is a huge asset for Darius’s musical aspirations.

As a producer and a performer, Dirt works the crowd fantastically. It’s impossible to be in a room with him and Darius performing without moving your feet to the beat.

Even in hotel rooms and hosted dinners on the road, he’s constantly at work helping Darius refine his sound and coming up with new ideas.

Says Dirt, “I had to make the transition from doing night clubs every night to doing schools every day. It’s an adjustment, but I love it.”

His favorite part of the road is seeing kids go crazy to his beats during the performances. (”So Turned Up” always causes an especially great reaction.)

And he’s done well with one thing that had worried him about performing for a younger audience….

“I haven’t slipped up and cussed yet.”

Thanks for everything, Dirt!
