Darrelle was accepted into law school but perhaps wanted to do more useful things with her voice than repeatedly yell “Objection!” in a court of law. She began writing songs and touring and was encouraged by the response she received. She has played gigs in posh Hollywood venues as well as Lilith Fair, North by Northwest, and Canadian Music Week. MuchMusic, Entertainment Tonight Canada, eTalk, Canada AM, MTV, CBC, PBS, and the official 90210 TV soundtrack have featured her and her music.
It was not long before Darrelle caught the attention of JUNO award winning, multi-platinum Canadian recording artist Chantal Kreviazuk. Impressed with Darrelle’s talents, Chantal met with her in 2010 to assist with songwriting, resulting in three collaborative songs for Darrelle’s debut album, Eat a Peach. Chantal also helped with production and sang some backing vocals. “She sings from her heart,” Kreviazuk said of Darrelle, “and her gentle unique approach to music is so special, it is a pleasure to be immersed in.”
Chantal was not the only big name to notice Darrelle London. Diamond-certified international superstar Sarah McLachlan was also impressed. Sarah and a judging committee chose Darrelle as the Toronto Lilith Talent Search winner, inviting her to perform at the fair sharing the stage with McLachlan.
In the meantime, Darrelle’s music began being used in advertisements run in South Korea and the music’s popularity has spread throughout Asia.
In conjunction with the release of her delightful debut album, Eat a Peach, lead single “Fine” has been released and is being picked up by radio stations across the country. Check out the music video below.
