I am so incredibly excited to announce the release of my new album, "Sonic Boom," available March 4, 2016 on Woodward Avenue Records!! My new radio single, "D-Luxe," will hit the airwaves in just a few weeks on February 1st.

This album is the most heartfelt representIon of my musical personality to date and I can't wait to share it with you! It was painstakingly crafted with the greatest care to be a complete musical experience. "Sonic Boom" features world class musicians playing real instruments on songs that come straight from my heart. These are full length songs with actual endings - no fades! The album is designed to play down much like a live set. You will hear a wide variety of my musical influences from jazz to funk, R&B to pop and fusion to gospel. I spent an incredible amount of time creating what I hope will be the most musical and sonically pleasing album to come from my studio thus far. "Sonic Boom" was created from the depths of my heart and forged with the best tools I could get my hands on. The audio was crafted using the finest analog equipment combined with the best digital technology available. Great effort was made to create a collection of music that takes the listener on a journey that is musically, emotionally and sonically compelling. It is my hope that you hear it that way.

I want to say a special thank you to Mark Nordman, CEO of Woodward Avenue Records, for his support, dedication to excellence, creativity, understanding and for allowing me the freedom to take all the time necessary to deliver a well seasoned collection of music.

I'm bursting at the seams to say more, but please stay tuned for additional details, including the list of incredible special guest artists and session players who are featured on "Sonic Boom." This album is as much a reflection of them as it is of me. I am humbled and grateful to have such a talented musical cast surrounding me on this project. This group of exceptional musicians knocked it out of the park!

"Sonic Boom" is the most personal record I've ever made. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!! ~Darren
