Engaging his audiences with storytelling and simple, yet well-crafted songs, Darren Senn is hitting his stride.
Highlighting his most ambitious effort to date, Darren has released Detrimental Tendencies, his first full-band album. It paints his picture with a broad stroke, touching on folk rock and rockabilly elements to add to his two previous, mainly solo-acoustic releases.
The contrast between dark and light is always present somewhere in Senn's lyrics. It is probably most stark in the toe-tapping, seize-the-moment message in “Before the World Blows Up.” While “Dirty Wrench,” a song based on his father's alcoholism, is haunting and gloomy. “I don't go to that strictly darker place too often; I like to have a light side to offset it, but certain serious songs resonate with me and definitely get good responses from listeners. It's therapy. We all are the human condition. It's great energy to share in the human condition.”
