Darrin James Band "Trivial"

The singer-songwriter genre doesn't enjoy the same limelight it did in, say, the 1970s, and sometimes that's a curse and many times that's a blessing. Even proven veterans like Petty and Springsteen, of whom The Darrin James Band is a peer, have trouble getting noteworthy recent material into the public's eye. But the DJB sounds so completely authentic and true to its voice that it almost feels cleansing, and makes you wonder why in the hell great songs like these aren't everywhere, drowning out the vapid clowns that pollute the genre. The debut album, Thrones of Gold, doesn't sound at all like a debut, but rather like a sharp, soulful, and rocking veteran that Darrin James will surely become. Check out "Trivial"
