Born into an Irish family but raised in London, Darren discovered his passion for music at a young age. He had a wonderfully vibrant and eclectic variety of genres readily available to indulge on throughout his childhood and teenage years.
This passion became an obsession, and Darren has spent most of his adult life playing in various bands, touring the UK and Europe, including some of the UK's top festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and the Lord Mayors show London.
Despite Darren's expressive and dynamic musical history, his introduction as a solo artist has been somewhat reflective and melancholic. With the previous single 'Days Gone By' reflecting on wasted time and his last release 'Bring Back The Love' being about childhood bullying.
The next four tracks to be released are similarly a way for Darren let go of old demons and move forward with a clean palette. You can expect a more vibrant blend of Punk-Rap and Rock shortly as Darren has already begun work on a new Punk inspired EP, due to be released in the latter half of 2020.
Darren's ethos evolves around three guiding principles. Equality, Vitality and Expression. He strives to promote health and wellbeing, equal opportunity, animal welfare and freedom of expression within the arts and on the whole.
Darren is also a founding member and singer/guitarist with bluegrass band 'Leonard and Bubba's Delicious Goo Goo cluster' whose previous shows include playing support for artists such as The Blockheads, Cuban brothers and Scissor Sisters. They have also made several radio appearances including the BBC's live lounge.
As an actor, his credits include roles for the Royal Opera House, Complicite, The National Theatre and as a puppeteer in the highly acclaimed 'Warhorse'. He has also appeared in over thirty films to date, including Feature films and TV series in Finland where he currently resides.
