“Time is my enemy/ Unforgiving, can't be bribed/ My only friend is the present/ And for the future, he is my scribe” - Daryl Myers
The Singing Marine is Back!
Daryl Myers is a U.S. Marine from Mobile, AL that turned his barracks room in Okinawa Japan into a make-shift recording studio and produced his first album. He has performed for veterans on several bases in Japan and in the U.S.
It's been a few years since singer, songwriter and producer Daryl Myers released his first album "Solid Gold" or any new music, but he's back at it now. Daryl said, “it’s funny how life can get in the way sometimes, but better late than never though, right?”
His next full album titled “10 For 20” will be released in 2021. It will be comprised of 10 songs that reflect in some way, a few of his experiences and his journey through life over the past 20 years.
His first new single "Breaking Point" was released Sept 1. It has the vibe and sound of Kings of Leon meets Pink Floyd. It speaks to people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD or recovery from abuse. Mental health is important to him as he has family and and fellow veteran friends who struggle with these illnesses. He says, "while this song may not have any hard answers as to how to fix the problems, it is a way to start discussions about the issues."
He has also released, "Fire, It Don't Play" for his time as a Fire Alarm Technician, "Devil Dogs" his Tribute Song for his fellow Marines and The Clipper Songs for when he worked on a cruise ship.
On Apr 6th he released "Together Through It All." A country song with classic sound and a bit of an ethereal feel. It speaks about the struggles couples face, but find a way to persevere. He even got his beautiful wife to help with background vocals on this one!
