Darden

DARDEN is a family of four sisters with four powerhouse parts of vocal harmony who blend Country and Americana into a soulful pop performance. Talented singer/songwriter/musicians who play ten instruments collectively, songstresses Selah Darden, Clarah Darden, Havilah Darden and Tabithah Darden have created a distinctive original sound dubbed Alternative Americana.

While their lyrics reflect a lot of their experiences, their vocal style reflect their influences – a hybrid of Folk, Americana, Pop, Country, and Blue Grass—as well as chart toppers including the Zac Brown Band, Jon Mayer, and I’m With Her. Along with new music, they flavor their performances with covers, belting out the best of Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Wilson Phillips, James Taylor, and Chicago, among others.

DARDEN continue to perform several times a year to sold-out crowds at The Muckenthaler Cultural Arts Center and The Foxx Theatre, as well as the VH1 Save The Music Holiday Concert. They were headliners at the Orange County Fair in 2017, 2018, 2019 and frequently perform at the Orange County Concerts in the Park, Anaheim House of Blues, Monster Jam at Angel’s Stadium, LA Veggie Festival, Temecula Wine and Chocolate Gala, Google’s Earth Day Celebration, and Google’s Woman’s Day. In February of 2018, after the horrific tragedy at Marjorie Stone Douglas High School, the girls wrote a song and travel to Parkland, Florida, to record the song with local youth and students of MSH for the community of Parkland. While visiting Australia for the 2020 New Year, Darden wrote and record a song for the country to bring hope in their tragic loss. It’s just released recently on Spotify and YouTube, in addition to several other newly recorded songs by Darden.

Alfred Johnson

The highly regarded singer/songwriter and funky piano player, Alfred Johnson, is considered by some as one of this century’s most animated and original songwriters. His energetic style of playing the keys brings a wonderful compliment to his music.

Alfred co-wrote three songs with Rickie Lee Jones on her Platinum Grammy Award winning premiere album containing the hit single ‘Chuck E’s In Love’. Alfred’s songs have been covered by Diane Reeves and Ernie Watts. Recognized as a true craftsman of his art, his musical influences include: Taj Mahal, Leon Russell, Dr. John, Randy Newman, Danny O’Keefe, David Wilcox and Bill Champlin.

He is best known for his amazing lyric-driven tunes that will keep you captivated. Alfred’s musical style is quite diverse and encompasses Funk, New Orleans, Pop, Rock ‘n’ Soul, Gospel, “Rhythm & Bluegrass,” and music that will have you wanting to dance. The emphasis is always on the lyric. Alfred has written about 900 tunes, and at least 70 of them are published. He loves co-writing and has written several songs with Jodi Siegel. Alfred’s been playing the circuit of live venues around Los Angeles for nearly 40 years. Recently, Alfred had a wonderful reunion with Ricki Lee Jones opening for her at the Coach House and that is apparently going to happen again!

The NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SONGWRITERS is quoted as describing Alfred Johnson as “…a talent of this caliber is a rare treat…”, but most everyone else just knows him as an amazing person and prolific writer with unique spirit and drive.

“Alfred Johnson is one of those writers writers who, like Cole Porter, Marie Caine and Stephen Soundheim, takes your breath away with the sheer craft of it, and makes you proud to be in this often under-acknowledged profession of songwriting.” – HARRIET SHOCK, 1993

“I think he is a genius lyricist, and I really enjoyed his singing. And if that’s him playing the piano, my hats off to [him] in that department, too.” – DAVID FRESHBERG
