After a successful 2016, DARREN PARRY is not slowing down (literally) anytime soon and kicks off the new year with a ZZ-Top-esque stomper, ‘The Grass Ain’t Always Greener’, set for release later this month.
The self-penned reflective production features the Welsh multi-award winning singer/songwriter on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, with long-term collaborator, Rob Devereux providing the go-wild guitar riffs, and vocalist Kaysha Louvain (heralded as the “Welsh Bonnie Raitt”) on backing vocals.
Last year, Darren extended his impressive CV by writing and producing for other artists, including teen sensation, Nina Jones (‘Promises’) – featured here on NEW LEASE MUSIC- and Lee Gilbert (‘Soar’). ‘Promises’, written especially for Nina, has received a Semi-Finalist position in the 2016 UK Songwriting Contest (judges included Stuart Epps, Shelley Peiken and Kipper Eldridge) and an enviable Runner Up position in the 2016 USA Song Of The Year contest (judges included Alicia Keys, Steven Tyler and U2’s The Edge).
‘The Grass Ain’t Always Greener’ is out for download on 28th January via iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and all good retailers.
For now, go crazy and check the single.
