Biography

After the success of Darryl McCarty 2013 solo album The Speed Of Light, he’s back, but this time as the front man of The Stereo Division.  On August 20th 2016, they released their first album, Love Is In Motion, a collection of 12 songs that long time followers of Darryl’s work will recognize as a significant musical progression in his song writing.

From the addition of synths to the highly personal lyrics, this album is engaging both musically and lyrically and is easily Darryl’s most mature body of work to date.  “I wanted to do something different,” explains Darryl, “and I couldn’t be happier with how this album turned out.”

The Stereo Division were formed shortly after the release of The Speed Of Light, so they’ve actually been performing together for about 3 years.  Having shared the stage with the likes of Andy Stochansky, Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo and Repartee, as well as having had numerous TV placements, The Stereo Division are poised to become one of Canada's next indie darlings.

The Stereo Division are Darryl McCarty on guitar/lead vocals, Marc Teghrarian on guitar/backing vocals, Tam Duong on bass, and Matt Weston on drums

Lyrics

Screaming For Silence

Written By: Darryl McCarty

Hear the hum of the radio
Drowning out the songs of our souls
This could be the night
This could be the time
We could make this right

Chorus:
I'm screaming for silence
I'm longing for quiet
Someone please stop the traffic
ringing in my ears

Hear the cry of this wounded soul
I'm lost, I'm looking for a way back home
Has it been too long?
Am I too far gone?
Am I still your son?

Chorus:
I'm screaming for silence
I'm longing for quiet
Someone please stop the traffic
ringing in my ears

Hear the cry of this wounded soul

Forty Below

Written By: Darryl McCarty

They say we're all winners
But nobody wins
The games that they play never end

And if I'm somebody
Then where is my voice
Am I a man or a boy?

Chorus:
It feels like, it feels like December
Its cold feels like forty below
Its a cold night, I've got to remember
Springtime comes after the snow

Its the roll of the dice
Its win or its lose
The outcomes not for us to choose

Chorus:
It feels like, it feels like December
Its cold feels like forty below
Its a cold night, I've got to remember
Springtime comes after the snow

The seasons are changing
The sun look its shining
I see children their playing
I hear angels their singing
Its the end of the seasons
The start of a new one
Theres no better reason
To go outside, go outside
