Darin Watkins is the independent type. His trademark good attitude complimented nicely by his Craviotto kit and Istanbul Cymbal's. Originally from Whidbey Island WA, Darin got started as a drummer in the old school tradition, leaving school at the age of 14 to play - Yah, that kind of independent. He's been playing ever since, becoming one of the hardest working drummers in Seattle.
Darin has become a destination drummer for DIY artists, working closely with producer Evan Brubaker on singer/songwriter projects from all around the United States. Recently, Darin has been working with producer Eddie Kramer on tracks for jazz/blues guitarist Michael Williams. Darin gigs regularly with Grammy nominated celtic/jazz/rock Violinist Geoffrey Castle, country artist Robbie Walden, and emerging young singer/songwriters like Vicci Martinez and Julian Moon.
You can hear Darin's playing on releases from Edie Carey, Jonathan Kingham, Julian Moon, Vicci Martinez, Higher Vibes, and Martine Locke.
