For Immediate Release - Darryl Purpose, folk artist and world traveler is slated to release his upcoming album, Still The Birds, on April 1. It is his first release since 2013 when Next Time Around spent five weeks at #1 on the Roots Music Report folk chart for national radio airplay. A special debut performance of the new recording will take place at the 2016 Folk Alliance Convention in Kansas City in late February.

The new recording boasts eleven songs, all co-written by Darryl and Paul Zollo and produced by Billy Crockett at Blue Rock Studios in Wimberley, Texas. The band included: Roscoe Beck (Leonard Cohen); Eric Darken (Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Buffet), Joel Guzman (Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Waits) and Daran DeShazo (Darryl’s favorite guitar player). The featured guest vocalist on the song "The Meaning of My Love" is Eliza Gilkyson. Still The Birds appears on the Blue Rock label.

One of several planned videos is in early production on the tune "Baltimore", a song about the death of Edgar Allen Poe. The track When Buddha Smiled At The Elephant, is the direct result of a request from Darryl to co-writer Paul Zollo. "The first three songs Paul and I wrote were about 1) The death of Edgar Allan Poe, 2) A Vietnam era draft dodger turned sniper, and 3) A graveyard of gang members in East LA. I said to Paul, can you send me something 'light'. This is what he came up with".

Among other points of interest in the Darryl Purpose story includes playing with Santana and Bonnie Raitt at the first ever outdoor stadium concert in the former Soviet Union. Darryl co-founded the Second Strings Project, an organization that has delivered over 20,000 sets of strings to musicians around the world and he also was inducted into the Blackjack Hall of Fame. "I've been chased around Moscow by the Russian mafia, threatened in Seoul by the Yakuza, and walked across the United States for peace".

Tour dates are being set up in conjunction with radio stations prior to a full tour of the U.S. this summer.
