Singer/songwriter Darren Marc hails from Long Island, NY, where the pop-schooled musician jump-started his career with piano lessons at the age of 12. Marc began composing his own material that same year, and later took up the guitar while fronting his own high-school band, Sonic Boom. Marc eventually moved west to Los Angeles, where he pursued work as a solo artist and supported his pop/rock songcraft with shows at the Lava Lounge, 14 Below, and the infamous Whisky A Go Go. Drive, a self-released EP containing four tracks, was issued in 2003, and Marc received a helpful boost when tracks from his 2008 release, Songs About Girls, began popping up in MTV shows. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
