Engaging his audiences with storytelling and simple, yet well-crafted songs, Darren Senn is the folk show you want to see.
Following his last studio album Detrimental Tendencies, Senn has released his latest single, the bare-bones acoustic video Gone Are the Days. The song is painfully relevant to the changing times, a reminiscing of the simple and free days of childhood and the lament that life can never be the same. The arrangement is strangely hypnotic and the lyrics are widely relatable, and this has proven to be Darren's most popular song to date.
As the world has come to a standstill, Darren has been staying home preparing more songs for eventual release as an EP. "The studio album was a blast and I'm very proud of it, but honestly I find the simplicity and the rawness of writing for solo acoustic to be my sweet spot," he says. "For this EP, which could turn into a full album at this rate, I'm all about the ol' three chords and the truth approach. I'm getting better at performing and delivering my songs too, and I'm so excited to share them with the world. Social media is obviously invaluable right now."
Senn aspires to carry on, in his own style, the magic of the storyteller songwriters like John Prine, Todd Snider and Townes Van Zandt. “What I love most is the ability to connect in a meaningful way with an audience using just an acoustic guitar and some thoughtful words and melodies. That's a really special place for me. I want us all to go on a little trip somewhere when I get on a stage.”
Born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, Darren Senn has resided in Stateline, Nevada (Lake Tahoe) for the past 24 years and plans to keep cranking out folk songs and getting back out to play them live when the time is right.
