Darien, vocals & compositions
Other musicians, TBA

Darien, an independent singer, songwriter and producer, has evoked the brilliance of original soul music of decades past. The incredibly gifted musician captures a breadth of emotions by telling honest and complete stories. Darien's tales are so rich and soulful you can envision every verse. The Mount Vernon native has performed all over New York City including Joe's Pub and S.O.B.'s to audiences who are awestruck by his ability to match emotions to authentic lyrics.

Independent artists are often compared to big name singers to give context for their sound. Darien's music stands on its own. The tone and thickness of his voice, his phenomenal range, and his unique poetic ability are more comparable to the era of old soul than any one vocalist. He is an exceptional wordsmith whose music has hypnotized audiences from New York to DC to Europe.

Beginning in 1997, Darien was entrenched in music with his hip hop group, The Colab. His power on the mic exposed him not only to New York crowds at the Elbow Room and at Lincoln Center, but it also allowed him to grow as a writer and producer. Darien has been a humble student of music, with broad influences that range from A Tribe Called Quest to Hall and Oates to Donny Hathaway, the roots of Darien's music are grounded in quality.

The seductive and soothing melodies of his music linger well after the song is over. His love songs, infused with all the optimism a singer could fit into a five-minute composition, leave you feeling high. It's an overdose of romance filled with hope. Darien's creating a catalog that will satiate R & B fans' fix for quality, substance, and fun.

Darien's music is currently in rotation on XM and Sirius Satellite radio, Music Choice R & B Soul station and locally in New York, Los Angles, Philadelphia, and Atlanta as well as overseas in the UK and many other territories. He is featured on the soundtrack for "25 Strong", a documentary about a Pre-Teen, Brooklyn basketball tournament. Darien also completed an EP titled "The Last Demo" and is featured on "Seven Ways To Wonder" by Reel People in the UK. He is amongst several other UK/Japan releases, including The Realm, and Bakura as well as music with Soul Persona and Jackonary Presents. His full-length album, "If These Walls Could Talk" has been released on Righteous Music Records, a department of Righteous Music Media, LLC. It has also been released in Japan on Righteous Music Records/BBQ Records. The Japanese version of the album has two bonus songs exclusive to Japan.
