|Born April 15, 1974 in Lebanon, Ohio, Darren jones has been a part of music for as long as he
can remember ever since he got his first acoustic after his parents traded in his trombone
from the 7th grade band(first chair). What are his earliest memories of music? Ironically, the
Oak Ridge Boys ,Elvis and Mickey Gilley on 8 track. Darren's early influences were guitar
powerhouses such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Brian Setzer, EVH(Eddie Van Halen), Vitto Bratta
(White Lion), and Nuno Bettoncourt (Extreme) and extremely heavy bands(hes been shredding
on guitar for 16 years in every genre), but later he got into the harmonies and songwriting of
the Indigo Girls. Darren is an affluent songwriter who's deep lyrics can sweep you away into
the story he is trying to tell. He has hopes of having a couple of big songs under his belt, as
well as continuing to play for his fans. Darren has played in several bands through high school
and college, such as, Nails, Malicious Indignation and Little Miss Fortune...Just to name a few.
Darren's equipment of choice is his Fender Tele, and his trusty Taylor Acoustic. If you have
never had an opportunity to hear Darren sing and play, then do yourself a favor, and get to an
upcoming show as soon as possible. He is a powerful performer that will touch you both
lyrically, and vocally.
