The Darph 2

Artist Bio

Influences:   The Smashing Pumpkins, Pete Yorn, Nirvana, Garbage, Wilco

Musician from Chicago. I've been releasing 90's grunge-inspired and electro-acoustic music with some dark, ambient vibes mixed in as The Darph since 2018. The last time I participated in FAWM was back in 2010. I just finished recording an LP but I really want to participate in FAWM too so I'm trying to use whatever I write this month as a jumping off point for future music. With a one-year old to take care of it'll be tough but also fun to see what I can squeeze out of myself creatively this month.

In past years I've wanted to get full songs done during FAWM but this time I'll be happy with about 7 demos that I can mull over for a while before releasing some more polished material later in the year.

    I recorded a full LP between August 2019 and February 8th, 2020. Since it wasn't fully written or recorded during February I'm not counting it toward my FAWM songs but thought I'd mention it here since it was released today. You can check it out on Spotify or Apple Music or wherever here:

    I'm working on my third FAWM song right now that I'll hopefully be able to post over the weekend. We're officially at the halfway mark (sort of - it's a leap year so we get an extra day).

    Thanks for the tip, @wolfkier. I had a feeling it worked like Twitter replies but just didn't try it. Should have just gone for it. Thanks for checking out my music and I appreciate the singing encouragement. I think I'll be trying it out soon. Hope the second half of your FAWM goes well!

    PS the only other place, apart from on song comments or profile page messages (as I'm doing here) a message will appear in your notifications directed at you is if someone uses your @name in the forums.
