Sundilla Acoustic Concert Series presents Darryl Purpose in Concert 5/2/2014 (Press Release)

I'm posting this straight from the performer's news release. Sundilla will have an earlier concert this Friday (3/28) by Gretchen Peters. I posted about it here. This series is one of our community's treasures. I think it's still largely unknown around here. Any ideas why?

Listen to Tracks from the new CD "Next Time Around" 

When Darryl Purpose was 16 years old, his mother put a book called Beat the Dealer in his Christmas stocking leading to a celebrated career as a professional card player.

After years of playing in casino’s across the country, Darryl switched gears, took time to walk across the country for peace and, in 1996, he began to tour nationally as a solo singer-songwriter. Eight years, six CD’s and a thousand-plus shows later, in 2005, he inexplicably set down his guitar, taking a much needed sabbatical in the rocky mountains.

Now, after years away from the music scene, Darryl Purpose is back! With a new energy and a new flair for connecting with audiences. In 2012, Darryl recorded his first CD of original material in 10 years - “Next Time Around”, produced by Billy Crockett for the Blue Rock Artists label. Called “a masterpiece” and “Purpose’s best effort yet” by Dj’s [sic].

Live performance is his strength as he connects his audience to his songs with a storyteller’s heart. And, oh, by the way, in 2009, Darryl was inducted into the Blackjack Hall of Fame, one of only 17 members.
