Born Nir Tibor in Tel Aviv, Israel - singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dennis Lloyd transcends culture and genre with music that innately resonates worldwide.With dreams of international influence, Nir coined his moniker Dennis Lloyd in an effort to connect with a diverse audience, choosing the name after countless internet Google searches to find the most accessible combination.I wanted a name that would translate around the world, says Dennis. Its always been an aspiration of mine to be an international artist. No artist from Israel has really ever broken out.And having released his first single in 2015, just three years later Dennis Lloyd has done just that. His breakout hit Nevermind is a global phenomenon having amassed over 750 million streams across all DSPs, is platinum in seven countries and reached #3 on the alternative radio charts in the US.The success grew organically from the songs almost mysterious versatility. From its melody to lyrical composition, it crosses all genres and employs a sense of emotional complexity in the midst of relatable simplicity.Dennis musical background and raw human experience accounts for such sonic rarity.He learned to play the trumpet at age 8 and the classical guitar at age 13. While on a family trip to the US in his early teens, Dennis recalls buying his first microphone that he quickly put to use writing and recording original music from his bedroom.For high school, Dennis attended Thelma Yellin Art School where he studied jazz, honing his technical skills, specifically that of the trumpet. But during this time, he was often criticized for his diverse taste in music and for his desire to sing. Many of his peers told him to abandon any dreams he had of performing as a singer.A lot of people made fun of me for singing, says Dennis. They said to stay in my lane, play trumpet because you cant sing.The limitations people suggested only fueled Dennis desire to defy them. His message today is simple, yet powerful. Do your thing, says Dennis. Be yourself and dont listen to the critics.After art school, Dennis enlisted in the army where he served for three years. After this separation from music, he was more motivated than ever to create and decided to move to Thailand in 2015 in search of a creative haven, which for Dennis is in silence.Basking in the quiet space of a single bedroom apartment in Bangkok left with no wifi and only his instruments, laptop, and a microphone, Dennis spent one year writing and recording.The key for me was that I couldnt listen to new music, Dennis says. I couldnt listento what was going on in the world. So I had to create what I wanted to hear.It was during this time that Dennis composed and recorded approximately 40 songs, including Nevermind, written about a Colombian woman he began dating while in Bangkok.After self-releasing the record in 2016, Nevermind began gaining traction on Spotify eventually peaking at #10 on the Global Viral Charts.At first, Dennis was not even aware of the songs rising success as Spotify was not yet available in Israel at the time. But as emails began flooding in from records labels around the world, Dennis quickly realized the song was taking on a life of its own. Teaming up with management company ONEWAY., Dennis and his manager Josh Fluxgold set out to maximize the growing global interest. Dennis hit the road on his first international sold out tour, 16 markets in Europe and North America. By this time, Nevermind had landed on Spotifys Todays Top Hits playlist amongst superstars such as Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Post Malone and the like, reaching #1 on three separate occasions and staying on the playlist for 185 days - one of the longest stints in Spotify history. His shows, specifically in Tel Aviv, were growing exponentially as well. In 2017, he was playing a 250 capacity venue and by 2018 Dennis sold out multiple nights at a 2500 capacity room in minutes.Dennis says, The best part of the tour was
