  • Need a stage name!

    Hey guys. I need your help coming up with a stage/artist name. I don't think 'Davie' is gonna cut it. lol..

    And I don't think my full name will work either. Maybe Davie+2nd word? Got any ideas? Need your input.

    I also read this article as well: http://diymusician.cdbaby.com/2010/08/is-your-bandartist-name-holding-you-back/

    What kind of music are you doing? And are you performing solo?

      I've been writing and singing my own music. In terms of genre, its a type of pop/rock with various instruments, possibly heavily-driven by synth, piano and some guitar. I don't have a band at the moment, but might be considering forming one, or maybe solo or a duo with a support band. Something like that.


      Here are some rough samples of my music:

    Maybe you can start with Davie and during your performances ask your fans to submit suggestions for a stage name. They could do it via Twitter.

      I use my first name and my middle initial as my stage name (Michael D.).

      That way, if I'm paid by check I just squeeze my last name on there and I can cash the darn thing.

      Aroidan, lol.. Thanks for trying.. But I don't think that I have the street cred for those names..


      MDL, I don't even have a middle name!

    What about a pun type name, like Will.I.Am or Flo Rida have? Maybe something like Day V? .png" alt=":smileytongue:" title="Smiley Tongue" />

      Tenacious D got their name from asking the audience, if you believe Wikipedia. Perhaps do a local gig and try that stunt out.

      Perhaps you need some suggestions for the audience to choose between:

      Davie Boweed (Joke's on Bowie)
      Davie DA (Joke's on DVDA)
      Tenacious Davie (obvious)

      That's all I could think of at the moment. Sorry bro.
      I'm Masklin. How was your day?

        I thought up a new name: Davian (maybe followed by a variation of my last name)

        Seems unique/distinct enough. What do you guys think?

        Davian doesn't seem right. Too close to Damian. If you're going with only ONE name... maybe make it meaningful. 

        Bono = good voice

        Sting = got it cuz he stung everyone with fundamentals musically and lyrically

        Madonna = lived right into her visionary name...

        Slash, the Edge = self explanatory and they delivered

        Maybe consider who you wished to be seen as... then name search/create. I'm interested in what you decide on.

        True, you have a point there. I also realized that it sounded very similar to Damien. I actually kept on thinking of Damien Rice. lol.


        Any other suggestions, guys?
