In 2007, Darren returned to Ireland to join a new Irish ballad group, The High Kings. Their first album hit number 2 on Billboard also going double platinum in Ireland. They continue to sell out tours in Ireland, UK, mainland Europe, and the US, and were invited to the Pentagon to perform for Chief of Staff, General Martin Dempsey. They celebrated 10 years together with the release of their album ‘Decade’ in 2017. Touring keeps Darren busy but he’s still actively song writing, collaborating with a number of songwriters. He’s also turned his hand to presenting on TV and radio.
