Darien Dean (Friday)
Following his 2017 Hideaway debut, New York's nu-soul man, Darien Dean returns for two exclusive London dates as he launches his new album, ‘DETOURS’.
Already a name that most UK soul fans will be familiar with, Darien’s last album ‘Departures’ (featuring a collaboration with the incomparable songstress Avery*Sunshine on the instant classic ‘Someone is You’) rode high in the UK Soul Charts with extensive radio play on Mi-Soul, Solar Radio and JazzFM.
So the stage is set and anticipation is building for the release of this latest collection of songs that continue to showcase the great storytelling-soul traditions that have influenced Darien’s music.
