Born in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, and raised in the Ottawa Valley, music has always been an integral part of Daryl's life. Daryl's musical journey began at the young age of 8 when his mother placed him in piano lessons, not with the intention that he'd develop a love for music, but rather as a form of therapy to recover from severe brain trauma. Not only did it prove to be an excellent form of therapy, but it created a lifelong love of music. Along his journey, Daryl developed a love for both Country Music as well as Contemporary Christian/ Gospel music. Drawing influences from artists such as Waylon Jennings, Vern Gosdin, Doug Stone, John Berry and Keith Whitley from the world of Country Music and Steven Curtis Chapman and Michael W. Smith from the world of Christian Contemporary music, Daryl set out to create his own unique sound. Faith, family, life, and his observations of it is how one could best describe Daryl's music. Have a listen. You won't be disappointed. " He writes the songs, I just hold the pen."

a transplanted Maritimer living in Houston by way of 7 years working in the Persian Gulf, a couple in Libya and various stints in Fredericton, Saint John, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Toronto. Having performed in coffee houses, (for those who remember them) lounges, clubs and bars (not to mention the occasional K-Mart parking lot and college gig), I settle now more for spending my music time in the studio and jamming with friends,and of course, writing. Song writing is a passion which was re-awakened when I got to Texas where the encouragement and response has been so rewarding. I released a single (45RPM – again, for those who remember them) in the ‘80s. Self-Released a CD of 12 songs from my catalogue April last year called Winter Fires, and a second, Sometimes In The Night this year (you can find them on CD Baby) and I would love it if all y’all reviewed it. I learn a lot that way. By the way, some truly great Texas musicians play on the songs.
