Darren Poyzer Bio

Singer/songwriter who combines loving emotion with socio-politics, humour and charisma. Darren has starred alongside many great contemporaries to a wide and outstanding acclaim.

Raised on comedy, performance poetry and an understanding family, he turns the angst of a Thatcher-era teenager into a burst of musical theatre, using little more than voice and acoustic guitar.

Working as a special needs music teacher by day has given his songs, stories and performance a new edge and vitality. Darren himself states that this work has proved to be life changing both on a personal and an artistic level.

The desire to write, entertain and be embraced as a charming story-teller has always been strongest. Darren Poyzer is a passioniate and powerful contemporary singer songwriter who has taken a happy-go-friendly independent road to success.

Acclaimed by fans and contemporaries alike as one of the most versatile solo acoustic creative artistes in the UK, Darren has been actively involved in playing, recording and promoting original music for over 20 years, since his debut in 1986, and professionally since 1988.

Darren was also prolific at the outset of the Manchester acoustic scene at the end of the 1990’s, fronting ‘Acoustica’ events all over Greater Manchester and producing the first acoustic songwriter compilation cd of that era ‘Words & Pictures’ for Raw Fish Records.

Darren continues to work with special needs children and adults providing music therapy and tuition, also running occasional music and songwriter workshops.
