De' Vide are a fresh and innovative music duo from Ipswich, comprising of members Lex Flowers and Barny Holmes. With Barny an accomplished singer/songwriter providing acoustic guitar and vocals and Lex a talented songwriter/MC, their sound is best described as a crisp fusion of R&B/Hip Hop with a Funk/Acoustic edge.
The duo recently made it through out of 30,000 artists to reach the blind auditions of BBC1's The Voice UK Season 2 - where they were successful in achieving a spot on Team Jessie J in which their performance was seen by 11 million viewers as they successfully moved forward to the battle rounds watched by over 12 million viewers in the UK alone.
At the end of March the guys performed to a sold out Jazz Cafe in London, recently performed at the launch of London Fashion Week, embarked on a tour where they also supported the Brand New Heavies and the summer season saw them perform at festivals supporting Jessie J, JLS, Union J, Naughty Boy, Amelia Lily and Wiley.

Both lads have had involvement in music from a young age, Barny has been in various bands and projects and Lex has always written and performed predominantly Hip-Hop and R&B.
However when the two met in 2010 they decided to fuse their individual sounds into one unique style, creating a combination of Soul/Hip-Hop/Indie and Acoustic.
It was from here that De' Vide were formed.
