To promote debut album ‘Of My Word’ on Treestump Records
“When Darren Eedens sings, it’s like stumbling upon an old record at your grandparents’ house, pulling it out, wiping off the years and dropping the needle in the groove; the Harry Smith Anthology comes to mind.” POSTCITY
An old soul with the imagination of a child, Darren Eedens tells stories, bends truths, and creates upbeat rhythmic tracks with hauntingly morbid lyrics. With his many influences ranging from the honky tonkin’, folk and bluegrass pickers of the past, he uses his unique and powerful voice to captivate anyone within earshot.

Feb 10 – Mr Wolfs – Bristol
Feb 28 – Heart of Rock and Blues Fest – llandrindod Wells
March 19 – Full Moon – Cardiff

June 26 – Square Tower – Portsmouth UK

With an unmatched live energy, he shares his views on life and more often death, shedding a beautiful light on the tragic tale. Standing on tables belting out words beyond his years, audiences are silent, only adding the necessary stomp clamps to many of the entirely acoustic pieces. You can catch Darren Eedens playing hard and fast, with his banjo, guitar and mandolin as his weapons of choice, sometimes using his voice as his only instrument. It is not uncommon to find Darren belting lyrics out at the top of his lungs, standing on top of bars, tables and chairs. He breaks any barriers that one would expect to find when attending a show to see a solo act. His energy is unmatched and from the first note picked literally has the entire audience silent and yet ready for a party.
