Aaron Davvid (Aaron David Ilardi) is a singer and songwriter born in the Bronx, New York. He grew up in church serving as the praise and worship leader in his hometown of Yonkers. This is where Christian music became his foundation leading him to his 2013 self titled debut album described by The Daily Voice as “a mix of pop, rock and rhythm and blues with the emphasis on salvation, faith and living a positive lifestyle.” “I wanted to be the next Carmen. Making relevant Christian music that impacts a generation.” Davvid said.

After taking a few wrong turns and not meeting the right people he took a step back to put things on hold and refocus his life.
“There were a lot of things going on in my life personally, financially and contractually. It became too much for me to bare I had to just take the time and reorganize.” After about a year and a half of reconstructing his life a friend turned to Davvid and said, “You gave up on your dream.” “In that moment I realised all the things holding me back were gone and it was time to pursue my dream again. It ignited something in me to move forward and do what I love, music.”
With a newfound sense of purpose Davvid threw himself back into the studio with a new outlook, music and style. His love for all things summer lead him to the birth of “Bikini”.

“I just want people to let loose and dance!” Davvid exclaimed. “People have a hard time having fun in life. Sometimes you need to let go and have fun in the moment. Forget about everything weighing you down.”
“Bikini” is only the beginning of David’s career. Currently, he is in studio recording new music and exploring creative opportunities. His upcoming project is set to release in the spring.
