Never the one to shy away from controversial or taboo topics, Dar.Ra is not a new name in the industry, he has been a part of it for a while with his musical hits in the UK and Australia, signed to EMI, Festival Records and various dance labels over the years, remixing Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Tears 4 Fears, Savage Garden, and writing for Rachel Brown (Faithless, Groove Armada) plus having music on various Hollywood films like ‘Snakes on Planes’ films starring Hilary Duff on ABC TV, Match Of Day (BBC TV) and US Documentary City Of Hope. Dar.Ra recently announced the launch of his new music album ‘Plant X’ and true to form, the new album features songs about some hard hitting subject that are having the right impact on the listeners, fans and critics alike!
The new album is a unique blend of Rock Energy and Soulful melodies plus Reggae and Country and World Music soundscapes. Themes on the album include; Women who bring up kids own their own on the lead single track ‘Phenomenal’, losing people you love way too soon on a track called ‘Rewind’, world insecurities on ‘Heavier Than Rock n Roll’, and love being your drug of choice on The ‘Pill’.
Regardless of the severity of these subjects, Dar.Ra has artfully used the lyrics bring listeners back to the light. The album is perfect for anyone who is in need of something real and uplifting in an age of constant sorrow.
His first solo album ‘Soul Hours’ was released in 2010 and was the album of the week of Spain’s Heart FM, as well as received support from BBC Radio, played to an audience of over 1 million people on air during a live show. He has built a massive global fan following and critical acclaim.
Dar.Ra infuses layers of vocals and instrumentation into each record he makes. The genius of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles, came to mind while listening to “Rewind”, “Back To The Brink” and “The Beat” (Tune Loud Magazine USA)
Dar.Ra is also an author with a well-received book out called ‘Road Tales’ that has received shinning reviews. Road Tales is based on the people Dar.Ra met while being the road from the late 1990’s to 2008. A follow up book titled ‘The Night That Jimi Died’ is expected to release in the spring 2018.
