Dan Carlson

I love to create my own music, in my own way and with a bit of a pessimistic attitude, although I usually include a ray of hope in my songs. Without the hope of wisdom, what do we have left. I let my music speak for itself in the hopes that my words sometimes hit home to whatever one needs at that particular time in their life. I know there's a

Jeromy Darling

"Just a pile of dirt and memories. This line, gently lifted from Jeromy's as-yet-to-be-recorded autobiographical song ""The Mississippi"", deftly depicts his childhood home - a trailer park in Ames, IA - demolished years ago to pave way for new condominiums. Only fond memories fill the otherwise dreary surroundings of his childhood: feral cats,

Jeromy Darling

Jeromy Darling

An intimate singer songwriter, Jeromy Darling creates music that sits solidly somewhere between the indie, folk and rock genres. It humbly defies easy categorization. Like a sweet, loner kid at school, his music is quite comfortable not fitting in precisely where it’s placed. His songs are real and now, but relatable and original, without rubbin

I’ve never had an imaginary friend. Instead I have an entire group called The Band In My Head. They have a full schedule, playing all the time.
