“As songwriters we sometimes speak for other people and what they might be feeling. We wrote this song for people who don’t always stand up for themselves. The ones who might feel taken for granted. The people who are the loudest say they’ve “fallen on their sword”. But the people who are the loudest shouldn’t be the only voice in the room. We added the line “I know that we want the same” as a nod to our shared humanity — sometimes it helps to remember we’re all just human in the end.” -tyDi

TyDi effortlessly bridges the worlds of electronic and pop music using bright analog synthesizers and punchy 808 drums for his latest single. TyDi manages to blend elements from the 80’s dance era with an attitude-laden performance conducive to today’s pop and creates an uplifting dance pop track just in time for summer. TyDi enlisted American Idol finalist and songwriter, Geena Fontenella for “Nerve” to help bring the lyrics to life. “Nerve” acts as an anthem for the overarching feeling we all have for 2020. 2020 has got some nerve!  While at the same time highlighting the deeper meaning behind the lyrics.
