Darrin Bradbury opened for Elizabeth Cook at The Ark in March and held the crowd in thrall to his dark story songs. Darrin, says Rolling Stone, offers "off-color folk music celebrating the humor & heartbreak of the American underbelly, with songs of roadkill, junkies, Daffy Duck, and Danzig." He's got a clear eye and a wicked sense of humor and timing, and he's the sensation of East Nashville's vibrant songwriting scene right now. Darrin's music, he told American Songwriter, is "recommended for those who suffer from non-resolvable existential issues and have the unfortunate predisposition to being overly sentimental when confronted with references to mid-century American pop culture. For best results use headphones. Preferably cheap ones. Once you got those take a long walk. Make sure it’s the kinda walk that makes you reflect on stuff. When you’re done reflecting forget about everything and go write a book."
