Bio

darby is a hyper-creative- prolific songwriter, animator and visual artist. She lives in the heart of Newtown with 30 others in an artist co-operative which supports her consistent craftsmaking. Most recently she released a 6 track lo-fi EP on her bandcamp in the lead up to the drop of her first full length LP.

Over the past year darby has been gearing up for her album launch with a number of shows around the inner west of Sydney, performing often as a trio with long time collaborators, the band showcases soulful nostalgia an intriguing blend of electric folk/ alt- country and hints of gospel.

The group has attracted attention from some of the industry's leading bookers which saw them front th main stage of Oxford Art Factory earlier this year as well as supporting Triple J album of the year winner Tia Gostelow at the Lansdowne and Shane Howard of the infamous 70s Aussie rock group Goanna.

It's like your plunging down from the stars to earth and every now and then you have these moments of stillness and pure bliss - magical and strong as always. So great!
