Genres: Electro pop

Born in Montreal, raised in London (UK) and living in Ontario, HERDD is an artist with a truly unique lens. Ever since his debut release in 2019, HERDD has been serving up eclectic electro-pop vibes that Billboard lovingly likened to ‘early Gaga with shades of Daft Punk’. And momentum is really growing. Building upon his ongoing collaborations with the multi-platinum award winning Rob Wells (credits include: Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber), HERDD has released multiple solo and collaborative projects, garnering a reputation for being unafraid to challenge genre norms.

2022 was a year dedicated to collaboration and exploration. With collaborative releases that charted on multiple international iTunes Charts, song editorial playlist placement on the likes of Apple’s ‘New Music Daily’, solo singles that were well received across social media platforms like TikTok where content featuring HERDD songs amassed over 4 million views and a stable and growing Spotify listenership, HERDD is perfectly set up to release his debut album in 2023.

Releasing in 2023, ‘Afterlife’ is the definitive HERDD release of this project so far. It’s 10 tracks document HERDD’s success in overcoming serious mental health crisis and finding a place of peace. Prior to the album release, HERDD will release the lead single ‘Go Away’ (with English and French versions) alongside a music video; with a substantial multi-faceted marketing campaign supporting both releases. To supplement the release, HERDD will be showcasing the album at industry events and music festivals in preparation for touring in Q4 2023.
HERDD (a.k.a Frankie Cote) has also played shows to crowds exceeding 1400 people supporting major acts such as Example, Tinchy Stryder and the KaiserChiefs (DJSet), he’s performed at festivals such as Bestival and Blissfields and received national BBC Radio 1 airtime in the UK courtesy of DJ and supporter Rob Da Bank. He has also performed at top venues such as the Camden Underworld and Ronnie Scotts, where he was asked to ‘at least wear socks next time you’re planning to dance on a table again’. HERDD also spoke and performed at TEDx Collingwood 2019 and created and released ‘Get Heard with HERDD’, a podcast dedicated to giving small artists a platform during the pandemic.
