Darren is a Staffordshire based musician, songwriter, artist and creative who loves nothing more than getting behind his drum kit and laying down some grooves that you can get up and dance to. Born in 1970 he is inspired and influenced by a broad range of musical genres from across four decades. Late 80’s and early 90’s grunge music including Soundgarden, Green River, Pearl Jam and Nirvana all feature heavily in his favorite playlists.
Music has always been a big part of his life but losing his brother in tragic circumstances in 1996 spurred him on to grab life by the horns and out of the ashes of tragedy came the musical collaboration with Jim and the birth of Bash and Strum. Since then he hasn’t looked back and gets a real buzz from performing live.
