Multi-award winning singer/songwriter DARREN PARRY comes along with a chirpy summery single, Summer Of Love, the perfect antidote for those summer days ahead, leaving behind the tough times many have experienced during the pandemic. The sultry Country/Rock number is co-written with (and features) ex Jesus Christ Superstar lead, Steve Balsamo (who has also written for Slash, Meatloaf, Cliff Richard).
Both have attracted much success over the years. Darren’s achievements include… 2004 UK Songwriting Champion (beating 6000 entries from around the globe), 2014/2016 USA Song Of The Year runner up (judges included Gwen Stefani, Don Henley and Phil Collins), 2019 ISSA Awards International Male Vocalist Of The Year and multiple other awards from Billboard and Unisong, to name but a few! Darren has co-written songs with hit songwriters like James Warren (The Korgis, “Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime”), Dazzle Music (Charlotte Church) and many others.
Steve Balsamo is known to many for portraying Jesus in Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar, forming the band The Story’s (who supported Elton John and Celine Dion) and being one part of Balsamo/Deighton. Steve has also co-written songs for Slash, Meatloaf and Cliff Richard, as well as releasing his own sweet Americana/Country/Pop blend of songs as a solo artist.
