Darryl went to Las Vegas when he was 19 and became a professional card player, which he still calls the 'only real job I've ever had'.

He has toured extensively and released 7 albums. His second album produced by Billy Crockett at Blue Rock Studios will come out in 2016.

The sometimes social activist always has a compelling story to tell, in words and in song.

Track Name: Dreams Of Life
Dreams of Life - Purpose/Zollo

Gloria works at the House of Pancakes
In the tambourine heart of Vallejo
She stashes her tips in a red coffee can
Near a photograph of Galileo
Galileo: she dreams of a fountain of youth
Galileo: Imprisoned for telling the truth
She dreams of life - with Galileo

Hector hides shotguns & ammunition
In the trunk of his mother’s Camaro
Somehow he got sprung after 36 months
Of hard time at Atascadero
Atascadero: waiting for the mystery train
Atascadero: hanging with the criminally insane
He dreams of life - in Atascadero

Dreams of Life, Dreams of life
All of our days only dreams of life
Dreams of life

At Noon Senor Moon runs a victory lap
In his cowboy hat and blue tuxedo
With sand in his boots
From the beach where he sleeps
On the outskirts of Escondido
Escondido: city of slippery slopes
Escondido: shadowland of shattered hopes
He dreams of life - in Escondido

Dreams of Life, Dreams of life
All of our days only dreams of life
Dreams of life

Bridge:
Going south on the 395, past Temecula to Tijuana
Took a turn at the corner of staying alive, in a coat she bought with marijuana
Just to drown out the sirens & car alarms
Just to drown out the squalor & suburban sprawl
Just to fall back into somebody’s arms
Just to drown, just to fall Just to drown, just to fall

Eleanor dreams of escaping New Jersey
To run with the bulls at Pamplona
In her strawberry robe in the dishwater dusk
She’d settle for Arizona
Arizona: so far from the ice & the cold
Arizona: the sun shining like Cuervo Gold
She dreams of life - In Arizona

hmm... hmm...
All of our days only dreams of life
All of our days only dreams of life
hmm... hmm...
Track Name: The Stories That We Tell
The Stories That We Tell - Purpose/Fisher

So you want to write a story, let me show you how it's done
First you get yourself a good guy, then you give that boy a gun
Then you rustle up some bad guys, the dark and evil kind
So when they get slaughtered no one minds

And when the fight is over, and everything seems well
And everyone awaits their place in heaven or in hell
Just don't forget, we become the stories that we tell

So you want to write a story, let me show you how it's done
First you build yourself a temple, that can almost reach the sun
Then you write yourself some rules, 'bout how folks should behave
And All the others won't be saved

And when the crusade's over, and the tolling of the bell
Covers up the cries of the fallen infidels
Just don't forget, we become the stories that we tell

BRIDGE
Now we become the stories,
as the things we think and do and feel enfold us
And the story still reveals itself
and tells our children's children what it told us

So you want to write a story, let me show you how it's done
First you get yourself a country, then you call it number one
Then you find yourself another place, to treat like number two
Where they don't do things like you do

And when every last native son's been killed or expelled
And you control each diamond mine, and every oily well
Just don't forget, we become the stories that we tell
Yeah don't forget, we become the stories that we tell
Yeah don't forget, we become the stories that we tell
Track Name: Orange Raincoat
Orange Raincoat - Purpose/Zollo

Born and raised in Elizabethtown
Inside a song of Kentucky
High school drop-out skating around
I can't help it if I'm unlucky
Unopened envelopes and magazines / Pajamas plaid and flannel
a 10 inch Zenith Black and White / only gets one channel

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

Bored to tears in Elizabethtown
Enduring dog days undaunted
Nothing to do but circle around
To all the places we once haunted
You with your Patchouli and pepper spray / Goin' on your auditions
You every blue Kentucky day / With all of your superstitions

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

BRIDGE
Blue frisbee stuck up on the roof
Blue Pinto parked upon the lawn
Every night I search for proof
But every night you are still gone gone gone
Every night you're still gone

All around ol' E-town I
See Umbrellas torn and tattered
All the things that made you cry
Way back when our love still mattered
We used to cross the Rubicon / When it ran through Kentucky
But ever since you've been so gone / I haven't been so lucky

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain keeps pouring down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town
Track Name: Race The Wind
Race The Wind - Purpose

They say you've run some races,
But that's not the best thing about you
You’ll take on any mountain,
And give no cause to doubt you.

But folks have expectations,
You hate to let them down
You put your best foot forward,
You take the higher ground

But when the need to show the world has abated
And all the challengers have faded
Time fills your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
You race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

When the one was taken from you,
And you could not comprehend
You wrapped her spirit in you,
And it's guided you since then

With passion, curiosity and kindness
Now for the both of you it’s my wish
Time fills your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
May you race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

BRiDGE:
There is no finish line
When you bring a beginners mind
(And take just one more step each time)

INSTRUMENTAL

So give your heart, from the start
With Love and no regret
Race the wind, to the end
And arrive with every step

They say you've run some races, but that's not the best thing about you...
Track Name: The Fourth Chair
The Fourth Chair - Purpose/Brophy

Tonight we did it again
Small square table, three friends
Don't matter how long long it's been
I tell them my tales from the road
They tell me bout buyin baby clothes
And we laugh about the way things go

CHORUS
First chair, he's a friend of mine
Second chair, she's pourin more wine
And I make a toast to a meal so fine
But in my mind you're there, in the fourth chair

He and I would travel around
Never thought we'd settle down
Now he's built a home in his home town
Me I'm still makin' my way
Lookin for one more town to play
How long you gonna stay

CHORUS
First chair he listens real well
Second chair, the stories she tells
And it's easy to see how he fell
My thoughts dwell on you there, in the fourth chair

BRIDGE
Old Antique, Stand alone
Not a creak or a crack
In that wicker woven straight back

Food is cleared the wood's on the fire
We talk til we get tired
Then we pull out guitars and strum a few
I play my new batch of tunes
But not the one I wrote for you
You know that one that made you cry, well me too

CHORUS
First chair he's rockin' slow
Second chair she's startin' to show
I get my things, it's time to go
And one last slow cold stare, at the fourth chair
...the fourth chair
Track Name: Girl From Golden
Girl From Golden - Dave Carter

it’s a hard road leads to spirit hollow
it’s the last best kiss of winter
this bitter breeze that blows
and even though he knows that she will never follow
it’s the changin of the year / that sets his mind to go

so he makes his way from aspen over natchez
and he sends his love a letter
but no answer ever comes
and so he listens for a whisper in the branches
and the rustlin of the needles / in the noonday sun

CHORUS:
and the light when it shines / through the proud dixie pines
paints her face in the flash and the shadow
and he stares down the wind / till he’s waltzin once again
with the gypsy Girl From Golden, Colorado

it was in the holy season of the harvest
that he found her in the meadow
overlooking boulder bridge
she was weavin lady slippers into garlands
singin “bringin in the sheaves” / along the chloe ridge

CHORUS:
now the light when it shines / through the proud dixie pines
paints her face in the flash and the shadow
and he stares down the wind / till he’s waltzin once again
with the gypsy Girl From Golden, Colorado

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

the hinges on the northern gate need mendin
sheep have gone to pasture, but the grass has burned to brown
and still this cinder summer shows no sign of endin
the days turn like molasses / nothin makes a sound

CHORUS:
but the light when it shines / through the proud dixie pines
paints her face in the flash and the shadow
and he stares down the wind / till he’s waltzin once again
with the gypsy Girl From Golden, Colorado
Track Name: The Ghost Of Crazy Horse
The Ghost Of Crazy Horse - purpose/zollo

You saw all the signs that were revealed
And you were the last to yield
At the battlefield near Yellowstone
Where they tried to beat you

By river banks and in between
The rocks of the ravine
They took your horses and your guns
And they could not defeat you

CHORUS:
But I see you in warpaint and in beads
Like a bison in the reeds
Following the river to its source
With the ghost of Crazy Horse

You heard the beating of the drum
The generations still to come
A thousand souls at heaven's door
Dying to be reborn

You saw the cradle of the skies
Where the yellow eagle flies
O'er the brambles and the brush
'Round Little Big Horn

CHORUS:
But I see you in warpaint and in beads
Like a bison in the reeds
Following the river to it's source
With the ghost of Crazy Horse

Now all is silent as a dream
Save the rushing of the stream
And the bluejays' wind borne song
On the scarlet skyways

Over graves and sycamores
Your unbroken spirit soars
Like a thunderbird of fire
Down eternal highways

CHORUS:
But I see you in warpaint and in beads
Like a bison in the reeds
Following the river to it's source
With the ghost of Crazy Horse
The ghost of Crazy Horse
The ghost of Crazy Horse
Track Name: Amy
Amy - Purpose

Amy, I'm known to measure a man
by how many things he believes in
Amy, twenty or thirty and then
I might agree to receive him
Amy, I was just thinkin' that I
couldn't love someone so special
But Amy, You could just blink and then I
would find the sea in a seashell

Amy, wasn't it sudden that night
when you said you had to be goin'
And maybe, try again? I think I might
like to, would you let me know, an’
Amy, I was just thinking' that I
I could love someone so special
Amy, you would just blink and then I
would find the sea in a seashell

BRIDGE
Oh, I know that she'll, think me a fool and it may be so
But all I feel, now everybody knows

Amy, I could be logical now
and reason away all I've found here
Amy, I'd believe all that reason allows
and settle for something that sounds clear
Amy, When all this thinkin’ was through
I would love someone so special
and Amy, you would just blink and me too
we'd find the sea in a seashell
Track Name: Song For Rachel Corrie
Song For Rachel Corrie - purpose

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
See the world that we make, a world free of warfare
Where everybody wants the same things
A place to feel safe and loved in, and wings

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
Though it seems that she's gone, I think she will be there
There with the dispossessed still lookin, for home
With the underdog refugees and the hungry, she'll roam

INSTRUMENTAL

And everybody wants the same things
A place to feel safe and loved in, and wings

To all my fallen heroes, I offer up a brief prayer
Though it seems that you're gone, I know you will be there
Where everybody wants the same things
In a place you feel safe and loved in, and wings

Look into the future, see the light that shines there
Track Name: Next Time Around
Next Time Around - Purpose/Faherty/DeStefano

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

I’ve no earthly idea what led me here
Upon this big circle of life
It spins on it’s axis / perfect without practice
I’m just along for the ride

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

There’s something inside us, it almost defines us
It’s really too big to conceal
In heaven and on earth
It runs just like clockwork
This spirit, inside the wheel

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

BRIDGE:
Life so full of mystery, the tragic and the joyous
We have this strange menagerie, so the truth won’t destroy us
Secret footprints in the snow reveal each creatures yearning
To know the power of moving forward and the joy of returning

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

If I should go by in the blink of an eye
Don’t worry for me where I’m bound
Beginnings and endings are only pretendings
I’ll see you Next Time Around

Counter melody over chorus: You look familiar, Have I seen you before, dancing, spinning, through heaven’s revolving door...
