We’ve tracked the progress of DARIEN DEAN since his 2009 debut ‘If These Walls Could Talk’. From it the lovely light dancer ‘Just Can’t Wait’ won young Darien (that’s how he was billed back then, by the way) lots of friends in the modern soul community. After that he took lead vocals on Reel People’s ‘Alibi – a worldwide dance hit and then he joined Angela Johnson on her still lovely ballad ‘All In Me’ (we recommend you check that one out!).
12 months ago his 9 track ‘Departures’ kept the interest level high and right now he’s working on a follow up – ‘Detours’. In the meantime you can hear and enjoy his talent on a lovely new collaborative single, ‘Last Song’. Duetting with Darien on the beaty steppers style tune is top session singer TIFFANY T’ZELLE who’s worked with people like Patti Austin and Leela James.
We’re told that ‘Last Song’ is a feature track on the upcoming ‘Detours’ which also features input from Omar with production from Herb Middleton (credits include Usher and Mary J Blige and Darien’s fab ‘Departures’ set).
