The result is uniquely Durand - your favorite singer’s favorite singer! Durand has had the opportunity to sit under, collaborate, & learn from some of music’s leading legends and contributors such as Earth, Wind & Fire, The Internet, Anderson. Paak, Teedra Moses, Adam Blackstone, Tweet, comedian Rickey Smiley & Erykah Badu. In 2016, Durand released his first EP, Sound Check, prompting Billboard to name him an ""artist to know"" and Lena Waithe to call Durand one of her favorite singers.
