Performer Profile: Darryl and the Devil

Posted on 18 Mar 2018 by Our Fraser Coast

The 'Darryl and the Devil' live show is a must see for anyone who appreciates the blues folk tradition.

Growing up in Rockingham WA and working as a carpenter and horticulturist, playing the blues as a living was all a dream. He played support slots for his friend's bands and open mics, traveling and song writing in his spare time. But in 2015 he quit his job and started a journey hitting the road.  Developing a reputation as a talented performer and songwriter, Darryl is now doing over a 100 shows a year and has played his own music all over Australia and live radio. He opened the Blues and Roots stage at the Gympie Muster music festival In 2016. He recently released his debut album, Homeless Bound at Pacific International with Robert Mackay and is currently booking a tour from Queensland to Western Australia. “It’s great to have so much support from local venues for blues and alternate music." 

"The Fraser Coast is really starting to get on board with local music and there’s a great community of local artists that support 
each other"
