Life is broken, and we are broken; but can we do better? Do we want to do better? Ever Dream considers those questions. After another year of great pain and turmoil, L3V! and Davnak have come together to ponder the hope of what could be, and what is. They reflect on the sate of our world while seeking a path forward. Through L3V!’s elegant lyrics and Davnak’s expansive sound, Ever Dream invites the listener to evaluate themselves, the world, and our place in it.
Do you ever dream of what the world could be?
Davnak X L3V!, Trials of a Porcelain Doll
May 1st, 2021
If there be only one way to describe this project, the term “Sonic Thriller” comes to mind. Forged by the combined creative energies of Davnak and L3V!, “Trials of a Porcelain Doll” is one of the more unique products to hit the digital music market. It consists of bone chilling theatrical instrumentals that are seasoned with a superb lyrical display. The storyline hits with a precision and concision that shakes the senses and unites the natures of man; mind, spirit, and body. This is surely an EP that encapsulates the volatile reality of the human condition, searching the deepest trenches of depression, to reaching the highest mountains of joyousness, and every step in between.
Davnak, Black Lights
January 1st, 2021
Following the release of Davnak’s melancholic EP “Breath,” “Black Lights” takes a more up-beat and energetic approach. It develops exciting and dynamic dance tunes, all while holding to Davnak‘s wistful and alluring sound. Like how the rising of the sun ushers in a new day of both great possibilities and great uncertainties. It incapsulates the joy of abandon mixed with the cold reality of the next morning.

Davnak’s first EP, “Breath” attempts to embody the chaos and confusion of life; while expressing the importance of mindfulness. With the OP-Z as the brains, “Breath” combines atmospheric arpeggios, tremulous textures, and melancholy melodies that encourages one to contemplate the eternal aspects of life. Regardless of how out of control things may feel, allow space to reflect and take a deep breath.

Davnak's first full length album, "New Path," takes the listener through an alluring experience of sound. Ranging from spacious electronica, dark and intimate piano, to heavy EDM. "New Path" expresses a large range of Davnak's musical styles. While words can describe the concrete and certain, “New Path’s” instrumental approach dives into the abstract emotions of music.
Derk The Incredible, Wonderland Single
Beautiful Free was born out of an intense season of apathy that erupted into a moment of frustration as I sat in a Houston park completely defeated. It was there that I was reminded of who I was transformed to be by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. No longer am I bound by fear, trampled by shame, or aimlessly idle.
As a result of this I wish to inspire others to reach the same point so that they may be elevated beyond merely existing; and that's a life worth living.
This is bigger than selling clothes and making art; it is a movement and a state of mind. I want the world to be free, Beautiful Free
