BandHip Hop

Music speaks for it's self, take a listen.


John DeVore was born October 19, 1982. DeVore was born and raised in San Francisco, California. J. Davinci grew up, just like hip-hop, during a period where musical interest was influenced by the eclectic sounds of the 1960's soulful sounds of the'70s, and popular music of the '80s.
The name DaVinci speaks to his appreciation and approach to music. His music describes his world, cleverly painting raps as a way to illustrate his surroundings and the people in his life. JD's original themes can be gut-wrenching and soulful and vary from violent crime and sex on the streets to intimate love and religion. His insightful street narratives contrast the positive and negative realities of growing up in San Francisco's Fillmore district. "My life and experiences are like hundreds of others in Fillmore. I just have the opportunity to share mine with people."
He first attracted listeners when he released a few underground Mix tapes in 2002. DaVinci's melodramatic coolness and infectious flow commands the attention of an audience reminiscent to the appeal of Brando's drawl as the Godfather. J.D. is on pace to bring real hip-hop notoriety back to the Bay Area and to lay the foundation for the next generation of MC’s looking to build from the music that came before them. You’ll hear from him soon.
