Around this same time, Daren met and married the love of his life. His wife supported his budding music career as he struck out on his own, playing local shows and putting out music daily. That’s when fate struck one night in 2016, Daren was playing a show with It’s Future Time co-owner, AED. The two musicians hit it off and promised to keep in touch. One year and a handful of sold-out shows later, Daren’s debut album is about to drop, changing the landscape of music in Portland forever.
