Bio

It was evident from an early age that Daren Joseph would pursue a career in the creative industry. As the son of an accomplished photographer and a poet, he was encouraged and inspired to find his own niche in the arts world. His brother is author Dwayne S. Joseph, an Essence Bestseller, and his sister is a painter and an all-around creative force. However, Daren chose to channel his considerable artistic abilities into the entertainment world.
Well educated at Howard University’s Musical Theater program, Daren thoroughly developed his voice and acting abilities. He also furthered his education at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, where he learned the technical side of radio, TV and film. This combination of education and experience enabled Daren to become extremely versatile. He is comfortable being in front of the screen, but he can also comfortably step back and allow his broadcasting abilities to shine.
After graduating college, Daren's initial success came after he landed his first placement as a music producer. The song, “There It Go” (a.k.a. The Whistle Song), performed by rapper Juelz Santana went all the way to #6 on the billboard top 100. This major accomplishment enabled Daren to win an ASCAP Pop Award in Hollywood, California. The song was also featured in the movie “Fast and Furious – Tokyo Drift”.
While Daren’s career got off to an impressive start, he still experienced the trials and tribulations common in the music industry, like being in a bad production agreement and parting ways with a friend and fellow producer. However, what sets Daren apart is that he never gave up on his dream.
In 2009, he participated in an iStandard Producers beat battle in Philadelphia and won. He then went on to win Producer of the Year in DC’s Velocity Magazine Awards. He took his time and developed his craft even more. He secured a job working as an audio engineer and learned how to be a stage manager and run a music studio. He then parted ways with the studio to focus on his own venture of producing and performing his first album.
Ultimately, Daren knows what it really takes to be successful. He knows through his failures that success is not given, but earned. He is driven to succeed and will not stop until he does. He tries to become a better person each and every day, and his faith remains high that his hard work and perseverance will ultimately pay off.
