"Rootsy jam-rocking songs about snowboarders.  Imagine the vocalist from Blues Traveler singing along with The Other Ones about some guy on a Sims snowboard. Grinding Hammond sounds join up with tuneful guitars and traditional Americana backline to produce bouncy, extreme sport Folk-Rock songs... the performance, melody, and soulful singing are near perfect."  - Eric Shea

"Mean Street Music Magazine"

"Talbot's got Cat Steven's voice, Harry Chapin's melodies, and Jimmy Buffett's love of good times in his easy going tunes on snowboarding slackers... Talbot's good vibes are infectious." - Andrew Asche

"Willamette Week"

"Bluesy pop-folk meets a distinct GenX sensibility in this Nevadan's wry tales of snowboarding dropouts, random love, mountain living and the musician's lot in life. Friendly and rollicking, Talbot comes off like a great beer-drinking buddy who's decided to lay down some amiable songs drawn from life." -WILLAMETTE WEEK - Music Editor

"Reno Gazette Journal"

"Tweeker Shred Master, the story of a young man who lives only to snowboard, already is attracting attention both locally and nationally." - Neil Baron

"Tahoe Mountain News"

"When talking with musician Darin Talbot, certain words come up in conversation over and over - Tahoe, fun and snow. Talbot's music - and his life - are permeated with these three items..." - Heather Gould

"Reno News and Review"

"Sharp, attractive songs about snowboarding around Lake Tahoe." - Rick Anderson

"South Lake Tahoe Tribune"

A guy who is a living symbol of the Combination of Snowboarding and Music--The local chambers of commerces should send Darin Talbot on a tour to promote BIG AIR, because he makes Tahoe sound like paradise on earth. - R. Keith Rugg

"North Lake Tahoe This Week"

"Talbot shoots straight from the heart. Some say that the days of minstrels are dead. But anyone who has experienced Darin Talbot's music would definitely differ."
- Joy Michiel

"North Lake Tahoe Action"

"Talbot's voice is deep and distinctive and complements his clean guitar playing." -Voted *LAKE TAHOE's BEST LOCAL MUSICIAN* for 2001 & 2002 - Heather Solomon

"Ski Press Magazine"

"In case you're wondering, the man they call The Tahoe Troubadour and Tahoe's Jimmy Buffett is no one hit wonder." - Lori Knowles, Editor

After winning a songwriting contest in 1999, Talbot was invited to open for THE BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA at the Playboy Mansion in L.A. Since then, he's been tapped by Bill Graham Presents to open for THE BEACH BOYS at Sacramento Valley Amphitheatre and by KTHX-FM 'THE X' in Reno, to perform at their ROLLIN ON THE RIVER 2004 outdoor concert series at Wingfield Amphitheatre, opening for JEN CHAPIN (Harry Chapin's daughter).

Twice voted *LAKE TAHOE'S BEST LOCAL MUSICIAN* for both 2001 & 2002, Talbot's also gained national media exposure with interviews and performances on the RESORT SPORTS TELEVISION NETWORK (RSN.com), the ALL STAR RADIO NETWORK, RADIO DISNEY, and SKI PRESS USA.

Talbot is currently recording his fourth CD of songs with strong universal themes to further broaden his audience.
