His music videos have tens of millions of views at YouTube, and every next single tops the most important national radio charts.

At the age of 20 he won the second edition of Polish X Factor, singing with Katie Melua in the finale. Few months later, he was awarded with his band Curly Heads at the Jarocin Festival. In 2013 his debut album "Comfort & Happiness" did a real furore and went Diamond in Poland. Podsiadlo himself scooped up four Fryderyk’s and one Wiktor – Polish prestigious awards.

Paul Gzyl of Onet foretell such words in a review of Dawid’s debut album: "If Podsiadło will continue to develop so nicely, possibly he will become the biggest male star of Polish pop in the forthcoming years". These words soon proved to be true.

In 2014 Podsiadlo recorded a sensational album "Ruby Dress Skinny Dog" with his colleagues from Curly Heads. Fall of last year saw his return to a solo career. His second LP "Annoyance and Disappointment" was released in early November and soon topped the Polish OLiS chart. What’s more, within less than two months it went Platinum. Many critics picked it as the best album of the year.
