Darren Hanlon At The Tractor Tavern

Once again the wonderful singer/songwriter Darren Hanlon was back in Seattle.  This time playing the Tractor Tavern.

As a highlight he was accompanied by Rose Melberg in the singing of All These Things off of Darren’s most recent album I Will Love You At All.  Over the last couple years Darren has toured the US from time to time and now that he is on Yep Roc records hopefully he will be back this way again soon.

If you ever have the chance to catch him be sure to do it.  A schmaltzy singer/songwriter is easy to find and impossible to enjoy.  Darren Hanlon is NOT that singer/songwriter.  His music has all the right hooks in all the right places.  And, his word play adds layers to an already great tune.

Update: Darren Hanlon

I met Darren the night of the 11th. He is a quiet and humble guy. We chatted a bit and then he took the stage for his outstanding show in Seattle Washington USA.

The Sunset Tavern is a small venue filled with a warm red aura and the traces of the Chinese restaurant that it was in days gone by. Complete with lacquer paintings and lanterns. It is a place where one is sitting with the performer rather than distanced by a high stage or stackes of speakers. Perfect for a singer songwriter like Darren.

The performance was top notch.

I met up with Darren the next day to take some pictures of him at a local pinball hall. I was surprised to find out that Darren is really an amazing pinball player too!!

If you ever have the chance see him it is well worthwhile.
