About Darryl Wise

Darryl Wise was born in Savannah Georgia on Sept 13, 1956. He's lived there off and on since first leaving in 1976. That's when he went on the road with his band in search of better paying gigs, art and integrity, an often overlooked quality in musicians. He continues to search for new ways to write about his life and others through his music. He is currently based out of St. Augustine Florida. His long awaited CD - Many Miles came out in May, 2008. It's a compilation of lots of songs he wrote and has been singing for many years. The success of his first CD has inspired him to start a new CD project entitled Reflections, which is due to be released in the Spring of 2009. He considers himself a songwriter and feels music can become a reflection of the times we live in. Darryl has opened many shows and performed with artists ranging from Los Lobos, Tears for Fears, Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys to Tom Paxton. He was invited to do a Songwriters in the Round at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville in 2004 featuring other Georgia-born songwriters. The group included Tony Arata, Pat Algers and Tom Douglas. This was truly an honor for him just to be on stage with musicians he considers to be leaders in the Nashville writers circle. In these days and times, Darryl believes that honesty in music and art is important for people to hear and feel. He feels emotions are directly connected to the greater spirt of all that we are. Without these passions, we would simply cease to exist.
