Darryl Purpose


Since 1996 Darryl has done over 1500 shows, (McCabes in Santa Monica, Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, The Kerrville Folk Festival, Club Passim in Boston, Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, Blue Rock in Texas, Kennedy Center, Washington DC, Quantum Arts, Ft. Collins, Colorado and more) Slowing down when he moved to Colorado in 2004 and found a home (and some mountains to hike in). Recent years he has toured a bit to support Next Time Around, (the 2013 release that spent 5 weeks at #1 on the Roots Music Report folk charts) and Still The Birds (Early 2016 release that also spent time at #1.

Darryl is up for doing some shows in 2019 and 2020. He likes to say “I have my brain and my fingers back. I am the healthiest I’ve ever been.” Explanation: Through a regimen of low carbs and fasting, he is 100lbs lighter than his lifetime high weight. His pituitary disease (acromegaly) has been cured, and he has moved past all these diagnoses: Sleep Apnea, food sensitivities, multiple allergies, carpal tunnel, pre-diabetic, diabetes insidious, etc. It’s a new day.

He is available for certain show opportunities in 2019 and 2020. If you’d like to host Darryl, please get in touch.
