The Voice

A vocal artist of the highest order, Darren Percival takes his live audiences on a ride at every performance. With the ability to perform as  a traditional singer, or with the use of a looping pedal, he has made a name for himself at festivals and concert halls around Australia.

Darren has always been musical. His parents will tell you that he was singing before he could talk. When the family relocated to Mexico for a number of years Darren spent his time jamming with his brother on home-made instruments. Moving back to Australia when he was 12, Darren found refuge in the piano and singing. Performing art school soon followed, after which Darren began working professionally. In the past 22 years he has made his living from performing and doing back-up vocals. Though successful, Darren has always been over looked by industry execs because he doesn’t have the right look or meet the commercial music criteria. Now a family man, Darren is available to perform at corporate or private functions by providing his traditional, competition-defining voice; or with the aid of a looping pedal, perform a unique and fun alternative performance.
