The second single, Comfort, is currently being released to radio and Music TV. The song Give Up Your Love has become an extensively played kiwi track, with the video winning 'Best Independantly Produced Clip' at the 2004 Juice TV Awards. Medicine Man is the much anticipated second album from one of Aotearoa's best-loved live rock/roots acts dDub, and includes hits Hesitate No and Making My Way Home. The songs are a culmination of two years writing, touring and extensive road testing. The album was recorded in-between a busy 12 month schedule of 56 NZ and Australian tour dates and numerous summer festival appearances such as the 13,000 strong crowd at the Rhythm and Vines festival '08. Already Hesitate No, the first single from Medicine Man, has attracted the attention of The Edge, Juice TV, C4's Select where it has been featured for the last 4 weeks, Kiwi Fm's Top 10, has been playlisted nationwide on all student radio frequencies and has been included on the NZ on Air celebratory 100th Hit Disc. Mastering for Medicine Man was by the legendary Don Bartley in Sydney (Silverchair, Missy Higgins, Evermore). Medicine Man was mixed and engineered by Singapore based Stu Newman (Stellar, Gregg Johnson). Newman was also a major influence in the sound of dDub's debut album Awake at Dawn which garnered 4 and 5 star reviews in NZ, Australia and the USA, and sold over 5000 copies locally. dDub are currently working on a third studio album and released its first single, We Are The Ones, in December 2009.

Horns, harmonies, and hands-high dDub tunes combine to create an elevating musical experience not to be missed. dDub is a sound that festivals and venues owners have been amping to get involved with and finding impossible to ignore. Their ‘journey through genre’ attitude has produced a broad and expansive following. Below are some of the events the band has been involved with, and crowd attendance.
