DaCav is a band who consists of three members, two rappers Mikey P and B Roc and singer Sydney. DaCav loves making music in which you can vibe and dance too alongside connecting emotionally. They are an independent group based out of the US and each member lives in a different state! If you’re wondering how this group formed, well we have the background information on deck! Mikey P and B Roc found Sydney on Instagram and after having her as a feature, asked her to be a member of DaCav.
DaCav released their latest single titled “Let’s Take A Walk” which is an heart-rendering record that discusses their personal real-life experiences with bullying and how they can unite against the grain to fight it! DaCav released a inspirational video for “Let’s Take A Walk” that will captivate you and help understand the message rooted in the song! In the video directed by Sydney in her hometown in Richmond, Maine.. Mikey P and B Roc are seen delivering their personal story with their distinctive voices from one another, which leaves a powerful and lasting effect. The first verse begins it has a passionate and aggressive delivery that reminds us of the rap icon, Eminem. After telling his story that many people can relate too. The hook then transitions in with the vocals from Sydney. Sydney sings a heart-warming and honest verse about the support and friendship they are offering for their listeners and fans. “If you need to talk, you can take my hand, let’s go take a walk.” What we interpreted from this that she’s basically saying, if you need somebody to be there, you can always turn to the lending hand to serve as an emotional support system for you! As the song progresses he begins to spit his truth and disclose the dark reality behind what goes on in many kids, teens and adults minds. The thoughts of suicide, hopelessness and depression is projected through these lyrics which gives another dimension of vulnerability to the song. What we enjoyed most by watching this video was how the production of the entire visual looked similar to a movie rather than music video. Beginning with a “Based On A True Story” it shows many cut scenes of kids being bullied on their way to, at and from school. Using many actors to help act out their vision. DaCav will undeniably touch many people with this incredible song about a topic so widely discussed yet the action to put an end to it is so little.

Hi DaCav! Can you introduce yourselves to our readers?
Hey we are DaCav! We consist of Sydney our vocalist and Mikey P and B Roc our two rappers. We are a pop/hip hop fusion group based out of New Jersey, Maine and Nevada. We are an independent group. We love making music you can move your body to as well as connect with emotionally.
“Let’s Take A Walk” is a beautiful song with hard-hitting lyrics within. What prompted you to create this song?
Thank you for your kind words about "Let's Take A Walk". We were inspired to make a song about such an important subject because it is so relevant and something many people can relate to. In fact, B Roc in our group was bullied very badly as a child. He was even physically hurt. Sydney was not physically hurt but was belittled and isolated in middle and high school. It's real, every day and everywhere. As artists, it's our responsibility to use whatever platform we have to raise awareness on what is right and important to us. Even if we can only get the message across to one person that bullying is wrong, and we can stand up to it by being compassionate, then we've done our jobs.
The music video was very well put together. How were you able to create this visual and did you do the casting of the actors involved?
Thank you. The video was amazing to make. We did the performance scenes in Las Vegas and the story was shot at Richmond High School in Maine, in Sydney's home town. Sydney directed the story sections of the video! As for casting, Sydney went to her old middle/high school where her younger brother currently attends and asked the school to be involved. People gladly jumped on board to help. Most of the children in the video were her little brothers friends!
Knowing you three are from different States, how do you guys manage to come together as one and create music!? Do you face any challenges?
Being in 3 different states is definitely hard, but with the help of technology we're always connected. That's how the group actually came together, B Roc and Mikey, the original members of DaCav found Sydney on Instagram! If we need to record a song and we're not physically together, we just work at separate studios and send our pieces to each other. As for performances, as long as we know the date and time, we make sure we're all there.
What do you think differentiates you from each other the most, artistic wise?
What makes DaCav so great is we're all so different and can bring different things to the table. B Roc is a super talented videographer that can capture the most action packed to the most intimate moment, Mikey can work any crowd, and Sydney writes and sings from her soul. Think of us like ordering a pizza with 3 different toppings that add to each other. Delicious.
What's next for DaCav throughout 2019?
You can expect a few things in 2019! You can expect another album and more music videos! You can also expect a solo album from Sydney! And you can of course expect LIVE PERFORMANCES! Make sure you follow us to stay up to date on all of our exciting happenings! (@Dacav @sydney_thesinger @briandacav @iammikeyp) Thank you so much, with love, DaCav.
