The D4 were formed in 1998 by Dion Lunadon and Jimmy Christmas at a birthday party. They released 2 albums 6TWENTY and OUT OF MY HEAD both of which went top 20 in their homeland of New Zealand. They toured throughout Australasia, Europe, North America and Japan playing festivals and headlining tours. "Ladies Man" was their only top 40 single in the UK and "Get Loose" broke top 40 rock radio airplay in the US. This was followed by appearances on Letterman and the like. Many of The D4's songs have been used in commercials, movies and video games.
