Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The musical collaboration of husband and wife songwriters, Darwin and Dana Nelson has taken them far from their small-town roots of Lucedale, Mississippi and carried them across the country where they have created a name for themselves at numerous songwriting festivals, house concerts, and top flight venues. Darwin and Dana have released six albums over the last few years and continue to be regular performers at the Pensacola and New Orleans Margaritavilles and Baumhower’s At The Wharf in Orange Beach, Al.  and on the Mississippi Coast

            They are founding members of the Mississippi Songwriter’s Festival and perform at numerous other festivals including the Frank Brown Festival, Smoky Mountain Festival in Gatlinburg, and Six String Festival in New Orleans. 

            Currently, the Nelsons (along with co-writers Taylor Craven & Mailboat Records recording artist Matt Hoggatt) have their song "Workaholic In Recovery" featured on Sirius XM Margaritaville Radio. It's the title cut on Matt's new album which goes by the same name and was produced by legendary singer/songwriter Keith Sykes from Memphis, Tn. (who is also producing the Nelson’s next CD, summer 2015). They were finalist in 2012 in thesongwriter’ contest with their song “Justice Served”. They recently received an honorable mention in American Songwriter’s Magazine for their collaboration “Doin’ for Daddy” with co-writer Craven and their song “Call It Gumbo”, the title cut off their most recent CD release won the “Director’s Award” in the fall, 2013 songwriting contest. Their song "Mississippi Sound” was recently selected to be on a Mississippi compilation album produced by Silvercreek Records out of Nashville.

            The Nelsons are retired Mississippi Public School Teachers. Darwin : Dr. Ed./Social Studies/Coaching. Dana: Performing Arts. Additionally, Darwin has extensive experience in emceeing/hosting events.  They plan to continue playing at different venues in the southeast and hope to enter the world of cruise ship entertainment. 

            Ladies and gentlemen, Darwin and Dana Nelson, Double Dee.
