Darin Bennett's dark, bluesy, Americana music represents the new breed of the old school singer, songwriter and guitarist. He plays a combination of gritty blues and raw soul infused with elements of outlaw country and classic rock. He tops it off with a powerful voice that rises from a mysterious whisper to a raging growl. His diverse influences include Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, John Lee Hooker, Bruce Springsteen, Nick Cave, Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett.
Performing in Los Angeles clubs since before he was a teenager, Darin was continuously smuggled into blues clubs by older, seasoned musicians who often brought him on stage to play. He spent most of his teenage years and early twenties sitting in with and opening for a long list of esteemed blues and rock artists. After years of watching and learning from his heroes, he has discovered his own voice and style.
Darin Bennett is a BMI songwriter & artist with songs that have been featured in productions for Imagine, Disney, the WB, ABC, and the Discovery Channel, among others. Darin has opened for such diverse artists as Hubert Sumlin, Reverend Horton Heat, G. Love, Louisiana Red, Whiskeytown, The String Cheese Incident, Parmalee, Walter Trout, Chuck E. Weiss, Jeff Healey, Wayne Hancock, as well as a strange variety of countless others. He has performed in both the United States and Italy for a wide variety of public and private events.
His debut album as a solo artist, 20 Scarlet Monkeys, was followed by the release of Midnight Storybook with the band Darin Bennett and The Requiem. The video for the first single, ‘Holdin’ Me’ (directed by Andrew Cochrane) was honored as an Official Selection of the LA Shorts Fest and the Sacramento Film & Music Festival.
'Holdin' Me' was chosen as the theme song for Warlocks Rising on the Discovery Channel. Darin also co-wrote and performed the closing song for the 2015 feature film The Bad Guys. For 2017, Darin has written and performed the theme song for a new series entitled South of Sanity.
