"The concept of making a record always fascinated me," states singer Darryl Grant. "I got my first opportunity when I was about 12 years old, when I came across one of those amusement recording machines that actually made a phonograph record of whatever one chose to record. I don't remember what song I sang, but that little record in my hand made me realize that music would be my life."
Darryl was performing around his hometown of Oakland, California with local bands and vocal groups when he was offered his first record deal at the age of 17. After a stint in the U.S. Navy and two tours in Vietnam, he began touring the county, performing and recording with the Rolling Stones, Eddie Kendricks (formerly of the Temptations), Major Harris and Blue Magic, to name a few. During the 1980's as lead singer of Fat Larry's band (former backup band for the Delphonics, the Manhattans and Blue Magic), Darryl recorded three albums that continue to this day to sell internationally.
In 1999 Darryl decided to try his luck in Las Vegas. A chance meeting with Cushney Roberts in 2000 led Darryl to become a mainstay on the Las Vegas Strip, performing with Spectrum. He is also currently working on his first solo album. "Ultimately," Darryl declares, "I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams."
