Darin Bennett's dark, bluesy, soul searching music represents the new breed of the old school singer, songwriter and guitarist. He plays a combination of gritty delta blues with elements of classic rock and a bucket of raw soul. He tops it off with a powerful voice that rises from a mysterious whisper to a raging growl. His influences range from Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Johnny Cash, to Robert Johnson, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett. Performing in Los Angeles clubs since before he was a teenager, Darin was continuously smuggled into blues clubs by older, seasoned musicians who often brought him on stage to play. He spent most of his teenage years and early twenties sitting in with and opening for a long list of esteemed blues and rock artists. After years of watching and learning from his heroes, he has discovered his own voice and style. Darin Bennett is a BMI songwriter & artist with songs that have been featured in productions for Imagine, Disney, the WB, ABC, and the Discovery Channel, among others. His debut album as a solo artist, 20 Scarlet Monkeys was followed by the 2012 release of Midnight Storybook with the band Darin Bennett and The Requiem. The video for the first single, ‘Holdin’ Me’ (directed by Andrew Cochrane) was honored as an Official Selection of the 2012 LA Shorts Fest and the Sacramento Film & Music Festival. 'Holdin' Me' is currently the theme song of Warlocks Rising on the Discovery Channel. Darin has also written and performed a song that will be the closing song in the new feature film The Bad Guys. Darin Bennett plays and endorses Echopark Guitars by luthier Gabriel Currie.
