New Folk/Americana singer-songwriter Jon Darren releases his debut EP next Friday 10/6/17. The project, titled “Raven”, is a collection of love ballads done mostly in an acoustic stripped-down production style that showcases Darren’s troubadour chops.
Packed with emotion and authenticity, Jon Darren’s 8 original songs and 4 cover tunes are performed with passion and soul by the artist who just began singing and writing early this year as a way to work through a divorce/heartbreak.
After performing at open-mics around the SF Bay Area, Jon Darren quickly began writing a bunch of original songs which he took into the recording studio.
Meant to cultivate feelings of nostalgia and love for an ex, the collection now represents a moment in time for Jon Darren in which he was immersed in music and the love for his family. The pain and feeling put into these songs makes them, if nothing else, accurate artistic representations of a music-man processing the loss of a great love.
