Darren Marc is a musician and songwriter who was born and raised on Long island. His sound has a rich, personal and philosophical background, combining great music with energy and spirituality. In the early years of his career, Darren mostly focused on rock and pop music, fronting 3 bands. However, things took a turn when he discovered Yoga and Kirtan in his 30’s. His unique approach to integrating his background as a singer/songwriter with mantra music has a soothing, moving, and powerful effect on both himself, and those who join him for his music events at yoga studios, yoga and music festivals, and other conscious event venues. His unique, soulful sound helps people to open their hearts and connect to others in a unified space of love and oneness. Influenced by spiritually-driven musicians like Krishna Das, but also by contemporary artists like Jack Johnson, Darren has developed a very distinctive voice as a musician. His continued vision is to offer music that inspires people to raise their vibration and experience more peace and love in their lives. This vision is particularly exemplified by the artist’s most recent release, “Let It Shine.” The project is a great example of thoughtful songwriting and unique ideas, with powerful ancient mantras, as well as lyrics in English. Other career highlights include over 30 original recordings featured as background music in film and television and being submitted for Grammy consideration in 4 categories for his original song ‘Whole Lot of Love’ which was featured on MTV’s Real World. Darren currently resides in Santa Barbara and offers healing kirtan concerts, singer/songwriter concerts, cacao ceremony-sound healing events, and private energy healing sessions.
