What the Industry is saying about Living Darian’s Album, “Live For Love”

““The new album is simply amazing” states music industry promoter and publicist Ken Cavalier of the Allure Media Entertainment Group ™, “we have extremely high expectations for it and have little doubt that it will skyrocket on the charts.” Live for Love is already gaining popularity amongst the music media critics and is already receiving stellar reviews. tinyurl.com/yx9ujaqr “The dynamic16 track full-length album, the sophomore release, by this incredibly talented artist is written with a powerful theme of uplifting-empowerment. It examines the human experience with the common goal being the betterment of people and the lives they lead”.” – Ken Cavalier of the Allure Media Entertainment Group ™, Independent Music & Arts Inc. (Jul 05, 2019)

“What’s most exciting as a listener, is the way Living Darian divvy ups his talents. On some songs he’s playing the piano in the same way Fats Domino might, or at times the classical piano seeps through. He’s also completely capable of rapping in the style of Nelly or Flo Rida. He’s a bit more mainstream than these guys, but he’s also got the basic artistry of someone like Tupac. I found the tracks “Hit The Highway”, “Bring Up the Lights (featuring Neveah Sky)” and “Down By The River” to be the best representations of Living Darian’s scope and diverse artistic endeavors. He’s remarkably able to go from a classic rock sound to hip hop to pop to finding a middle ground in positive lyrics.” “Overall, Living Darian inspires and impresses in Live For Love. – Mindy McCall, Indie Pulse Music (Aug 12, 2019)

““Down By The River” is a rock song with a gritty soul centerpiece that aches with more emotion than I thought I would find on this album, and together with the churning ballad “Carry On,” justify picking up a copy of Live For Love as soon as you possibly can this August. If you’ve never heard the music of Living Darian, this LP is an undisputed must-listen, as it contains some of the most powerful performances that he has committed to master tape in the decade-plus that he’s been in the game. He’s got a one of a kind talent that has only gotten better in the last few years, and I for one can’t wait to hear what he does with it next.” – Zachary Rush, Indie Music Reviews (Aug 30, 2019)

Update from Living Darian

Quick update with what’s new… I am very pleased to say that my song, “One Song” is officially in the pool for a Grammy!! You are a big part of that because you kept me going with your support & I can’t thank you enough 🙂 As i mentioned earlier, I’m working on the Motion picture soundtrack for the film “Breaking The Silence”. Here’s the link for the Music Video Theme song, https://youtu.be/Q1BVZxL4pa4 I think you’ll dig it. It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve had the opportunity to work on!

New Indie Music Living Darian’s new album “Live For Love”

Right out of the gate, Living Darian’s new album Live For Love, released earlier this year to mass acclaim, digs its vibrant hooks into us with the sizzling opening salvo “Hit The Highway,” and following its mix of swinging beats and stinging riffs we’re immediately met with a bludgeoning hip-hop harmony featuring none other than Mr. Quin B. stepping up to the mic in “Fork In The Road.” This white-hot collaborative effort sets the pace for the next couple of songs that follow, starting with Jangles’ remix of the title track and finishing off in the deconstructed pop-rap of “Bring Up The Lights,” which brings Nevaeh Sky into the mix for the first of two tenacious duets with Living Darian, who is unquestionably in top form in this powerhouse of an LP.

NUMBER ONE MUSIC: https://www.numberonemusic.com/LivingDarian

“These Things” and “Can’t Stop” are both driven by eccentric piano melodies, but the latter definitely has more in common with the surreal throwback hip-hop that has been taking over underground airwaves in the last few years than the former does. They’re about as black and white a pair of rap tracks as I’ve reviewed this summer, and next to the profoundly experimental “Down By The River,” rather conventional by design. “Down By The River” is a rock song with a gritty soul centerpiece that aches with more emotion than I thought I would find on this album, and together with the churning ballad “Carry On,” justify picking up a copy of Live For Love as soon as you possibly can this August.

Blizz teams up with Living Darian for “Live The Way I Choose,” a song that recalls old school Twista as much as it does contemporary progressive rap, and though it’s not quite as engaging a collaboration as “Steppin Out” is, it’s still an essential part of this tracklist that I wouldn’t even dream of skipping over. LD gets a little grainy in his delivery for the spellbinding “Gullible,” embraces pomp and rich excess in the party-starter “Tonight It Goes Down,” dances a sinfully addictive dance with Neveah Sky in the remix of “Broken Wings” and teases a self-awareness that is downright infectious in “When I See You Again,” but even when he experiments with ambient textures in “One Song,” he always sounds not only in full-control of the aesthetical trajectory of Live For Love, but boldly erudite in his direction of the music.

NAPSTER: https://us.napster.com/artist/living-darian/album/live-for-love

Live For Love concludes with the smoky “Thank You,” and while this closing number is probably one of the least-experimental compositions of any you’re going to find on this album, it finishes us off on a particularly high note that complements the melting pot of melodies that precede it. If you’ve never heard the music of Living Darian, this LP is an undisputed must-listen, as it contains some of the most powerful performances that he has committed to master tape in the decade-plus that he’s been in the game. He’s got a one of a kind talent that has only gotten better in the last few years, and I for one can’t wait to hear what he does with it next.

destined for greatness.

“What doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger.”

     Darian was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to a young, Irish woman named, Sheila Faye Owen. His father was Calvin Goshade who, Played Guitar with legends such as James Brown. During Sheilas’ pregnancy &  Darian’s birth, his father was on tour and didn’t know he had a son. Darian was raised with his two younger sisters by his young, single mother. Unfortunately, Darian’s mom died of cancer 10 days before his 5th birthday. She picked out a Place for him and his 2 younger sisters to live but sexual abuse made the living situation short lived. His sisters were adopted, and Darian moved 13 times over the next 3 years before being adopted by the two people that saved his life… his parents Marilyn & William Pellman. Thus his story truly began. He delved into music and found his calling. Darian began in music at age 10 by learning the drums. He started writing his own music at 14, recording at 16 and had his own studio at 18. Darian Was the executive producer of a group entitled: Non-Fiction, which he was a member of for over 7 years. The group was very talented; however, other members didn’t take music as seriously as L.D., so he went solo— and has been ever since.

     Darian’s music is basically Hip Hop but, has heavy blues and rock influences He claims he can make any style of music. Listening to his album, “Whatever It Takes” we see why… It’s eclectic & riddled with unexpectancies. Darian now also plays the guitar and piano but, the most popular aspect of this artist is his voice. He sings and raps; sometimes at the same time. He has an array of talents.

      Years later he got a degree in audio/ video production. In addition to being an artist, he ran a professional audio/video production company, called Wide Eyed Entertainment. He has worked for Clear Channel, as an audio engineer and other local TV stations. He wrote scripts, shot and edited weekly aired show on commercial television called “Passport to new homes”.

In addition to being the founder of World Wide Radio Airplay, The Empowerment Network, Cincinnati Music Academy and his Indie Record Label, New King Records.

After wasting a lot of time on street dreams, drugs, money, Darian finally lives life like it’s important to him. Everyday is meaningful and productive. It took some getting in trouble but it stuck. Asked, what’s the driving force behind your music, he says, “The most important things to me are God and my family”. “What drives me is the legacy that I want to leave; not only for my kids but everyone”. “I want to be able to change things for the better. I owe too many people not too give everything I got, to everything I do; Everyday”.

Music is in LD’s Blood

Darian finally got the chance to meet his father through the late R&B guitarist Phelps “CatfishCollins. His father actually was the one who put a guitar in funk legend guitarist Bootsy Collins’ hand. Calvin Goshade who was signed with Atlantic Records and played with James Brown & Ottis Williams, still plays today with a group call the regencies.

LD’s father is actually planning to make some great blues music with his long lost son. Darian loves the blues & it’s in his blood. His grandfather was a preacher from Alabama, Who played the guitar, while his Grand-mother sang and played the piano.
