Edinburgh Rock Singer Dmarco Is Set For Stardom

Bookmark and Share
After spending his childhood hanging out backstage with famous musicians and harbouring an ever-growing lust for music, Daryl ‘Dmarco’ is now ready for the spotlight.

As a completely new artist, with a brand new album that has yet to be released, UK rock singer Daryl Demarco, who is no stranger to the music industry, has been brushing shoulders with celebrities for years. He has grown up a product of his surroundings and there is no doubt that the music in his blood has been heavily influenced by his past. He can boast of an impressive childhood, his father owned three separate concert halls by the time Daryl was 15 in Edinburgh and Glasgow, which over the years, have been home to literally hundreds of the biggest selling artists in the world as they pass through on tour. Not many teenagers can say that they have partied backstage with Justin Timberlake and the Black Eyed Peas or simply hanging out pre concert with Slash playing guitar, one of the most influential guitarists of all time. At a point in his childhood, Dmarco's mother's partner was Jo Callis, the songwriter and multi instrumentalist from supergroup ‘The Human League’. From the young age of 8, Daryl would sit outside Jo’s room in the evenings, press his ear to the door and listen to him crafting new songs on his guitar whilst trying to avoid getting caught by his mother for being out of bed.

The single ‘Hollywood Crush’, the album's title name, has got 'cult smash' oozing out of it's pores. It is a revolutionary, ‘middle-finger’ up to the Hollywood film industry. It is the story of the underdog. How many youngsters ever get the chance to meet the actor/actress they have a crush on in the flesh and for that person to even know that they exist? Yet ironically, it is this fantasy that Hollwood has been selling for years. Dmarco doesn't believe in fairytales, he does though believe in the impossible dream. The album in its entirety conveys the bitter after taste of emotions that are tainted by the destructive nature of love - the positive mixed with the melancholy. Dmarco keeps it simple when talking about complex emotions, enabling his audience to relate to the songs the first time they hear them.

Two tracks off of the album were recorded in the same studio where the legendary David Bowie recorded his album ‘Heroes’ in Berlin, where he worked with his producer and Scottish tenor, Martin Aelred. One of the songs from the album, ‘All I Need’, was recorded in the stairwell of this colossal old wartime building. Dmarco demanded he sing the vocal in the stairwell, it took 8 people to run 170 metres of cable, eventually reaching the stairwell from the studio and only then was the vocal recorded.

It’s not just Dmarco’s musical life that has been riddled with curiosity and adventure. He has travelled thousands of miles around the world, however, on his most recent journey, when he arrived at Nepal he was refused entry to Tibet and detained by the Chinese government officials, he was eventually released after three weeks. His reason for being refused is still unknown.

A key feature in Dmarco’s individuality as an artist, is his ingenuity. He decided that having complete control over the creative process of his music was a crucial aspect for his development as an artist. He set out perfecting the art of film making, in total putting in excess of 1000 hours so that he can create a music video for every song he releases. In a present day world, where musical creativity has became a scarcity, fate has had its hand forced to stage a credible fight back, and it has inspired Dmarco to produce rock music with a soulful edge, that is universally engaging and exhilarating.

Hollywood Crush is due for release in March 2014, alongside Dmarco’s first tour in Japan.
