 London, Ontario, CAN

Darryl McCarty is a London, Ontario based singer/songwriter in the vein of Jeff Buckley, The Travelling Wilburys, Tom Petty, and U2.


From 2005 until 2012 Darryl McCarty wrestled with keeping bands Chasing Arcadia and The Ceramic Flowers together. A common challenge among musicians. In the process Darryl has had the opportunity to play a lot of shows (opening for such acts as Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo and Andy Stochansky), written a ton of songs, has had a variety of TV and movie placements and even managed to conjure up some buzz and major label interest.

Early in 2012, Darryl locked himself in his basement studio. This time to put together his first solo album. Originally slated to be an EP, the songs kept coming, and the EP quickly became a full length album. By December about 30 songs got weeded down to 11 songs.

Ladies and gentlemen, "The Speed Of Light", the first solo effort by London, Ontario native Darryl McCarty. Playing virtually every instrument except drums (Francois Parent on drums for the whole album), recording, mixing the entire album, and mastered at Beach Road Studios by Siegfried Meier, the album is truly homegrown.

The Album was released Late 2013.

With the release of the album Darryl put together his live band (The Stereo Division), which includes Chris Standish on bass, Corey Seabrook on guitar, Dave Desmit on Drums, and Marc Tehgrarian on guitar.

With rave reviews, and concert appearances at London Music Hall, The Rivoli, The Cameron House and the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern Darryl and his band (The Stereo Division) have been wowing whoever will listen.  Darryl's music has recieved international radio play, and has been licensed for several TV and movie placements.

Currently Darryl is working on his next release, and preparing for a fall mini tour across Ontario.
