Darren Knight

 


Darren started his career in a band called the Darren Harris band back 1986 singing rock n roll songs, country songs as well as many other well known hits. Darren then turned solo in the year 2000 with his 50's,60's,70's, show. He has travelled the length and breadth of the country playing at places such as clubs, pubs, people's houses, garden parties, weddings and even funerals. He started singing on the country scene only recently after a friend helped him get in touch with an agent who connected Darren to his first ever country music gig. Since then he has never looked back . He topped the UK country charts twice in a short period of time having two number one hits. He has been quite busy with both of his shows. Not only did Darren stick to these gigs, he has also lent a hand to another country band that was a regular spot in Wakefield every month and also every other week in Barnsley as a resident rock n roll pianist but also is classically trained on the piano as well. There is no end to Darren's talents and what instruments he plays. He gets extremely good write ups in the local cross country magazine from critics far and wide across the country. most critics usually say that He is a breath of fresh air to country music due to his 4 octave vocal range where he can go from Jonny cash songs to Roy Orbison or Slim Whitman. Darren doesn't tend to sing many up to date country songs as he loves the older style of country that suits his voice and is a bit different to what everyone else sings for a varied audience. Also writing some of his own songs and records his music at home and records his own cd's for sale when he's on the road. He always wins his audience over with his fantastic vocal range and arrangement of songs and his witty sense of humour. Darren has many fans that follow him from place to place, more so in the country scene but also around the Yorkshire area too. Loving what he is doing he wants to continue entertaining his fans for many years to come and thrives on winning over his audiences far and wide as he finds new venues and new country fans to play to.
