DISCOVER: 'Strange Storm' By Darrin James

DISCOVER: ‘Strange Storm’ By Funk Rock Artist Darrin James

Darrin James is a funk rock singer/songwriter from Detroit. His third full length album, Strange Storm, explores themes of today’s “climate” of constant violence, blatant greed, religious hypocrisy and political chaos.

Although he was raised in Michigan, he spent a decade in Brooklyn, New York, where he practiced his songwriting and production craft. We consider Darrin’s music to be funk rock, but in reality he’s a mix of blues, folk, rock, soul, funk, and country! His musical style is as varied as his background as it draws on his love of the blues and folk music of the south, the Motown soul and classic  rock n’ roll rawness of Detroit, and the eclecticism and immediacy of Brooklyn.

If you’re interested in music by Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Waits, you may be interested in Darrin James!

Hi! I'm Mel. I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile.
