“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!
