“This is grown folks music baby!!” This isn’t just soul music it’s music that has a soul. Live instrumentation, Classic Songwriting, and passion combine to make this sure this will stay on repeat for a while to come.

Departures features a noteworthy list of collaborators, including the incomparable songstress ​Avery*Sunshine​,​ on the instant classic “​Someone is You​,” as well as production helmed by multi-platinum hitmaker Herb Middleton (M​ ary J. Blige​, Usher​) and studio veteran Shawn Hibbler (​Kindred the Family Soul​, ​Darius Rucker​), all the while showcasing the same great storytelling-soul that we fell in love with on Darien’s highly acclaimed debut “​If These Walls Could Talk​.”

“I love the songwriting process. In a divided world, our stories are the one thing that unify us and reveal how similar we really are.”​ ​-Darien

Darien Dean is a soul chemist. In his laboratory, nothing is off limits: combining timeless materials echoing to days past, as heard on the infectious “​Harmless​”; to the modern soul musings of “​Find a Way,”​ to the haunting melodies and timely subject matter of “​Wonders​” and “​Pieces,​” his unique and personal songwriting approach keeps the eclectic mix beautifully cohesive.
After a successful global tour, stretching from all corners of Europe, to Australia, Bali and Hong Kong; with performances in such legendary halls as the ​Jazz Cafe (London), the ​Bizz’art​ (Paris), and ​A-trane​ ​(Germany), the stage is finally set for the release of the first chapter in what is sure to be a Notable Journey!!

With thought provoking lyrics and a soul moving tenor “​Departures​” will take you on an incredible ride.

Get your ticket, this is one journey you don’t want to miss!
