With the Toronto Star writing that Darrelle London’s music “Reminds one of Kate Nash channeling Jill Sobule with a dash of Ben Folds,” it’s no wonder that London’s playful sound has earned her many fans, and some unexpected supporters along the way.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton counts London among his favourite singer/songwriters, writing on his website, “We love the quirky Canadian piano pop singer/songwriter! She’s back with some fresh tunes and it’s so HER! Sweet! Catchy! And slightly off-center! We love it!”
Fellow Canadian songstress Chantal Kreviazuk excitedly reached out to London upon discovering her music online. The pair have since collaborated together, and Kreviazuk speaks highly of the experience: “her gentle, unique approach to music is so special, it is a pleasure to be immersed in.”
Some highlights from Darrelle London’s still-young career include touring North America, being chosen by Sarah McLachlan to perform at Lilith Fair, and placing her music on the hit 90210 TV series.
London has enjoyed airplay on CBC radio programs such as DNTO, Vinyl Café and Radio 2 Drive and has appeared on Canada AM, CBC The National, eTalk, MuchMusic, and PBS. She was also thrilled to be named a Bell Emerging Artist when her single, Fine, was added to rotation at commercial radio stations across Canada.
Darrelle is currently in the studio recording her third album, Tangerine and Blue, to be released in spring 2015. She is working with producers Kevin Fox (acclaimed singer/songwriter and cellist) and Charles F Huot (of the Montreal band Winter Gloves). She looks forward to touring across Canada in support of the new album, and connecting with her amazing community of fans and supporters.
