"Pilots and musicians are of the same breed. They all have their heads in the clouds," Darcie muses. Born in Toronto to a journalist/pilot mother and a bush helicopter pilot father, they lived in Northern Canada and constantly moved around North America, from one culture to another. At 16, Darcie struck out on her own, making her living on the streets of Toronto playing guitar. Finding home in Austin, TX, Darcie is known for her fiery fiddling and singing her Appalachian, Cajun, bluesy roots songs, and working internationally with other actors and musicians. She's currently a member of the Austin Lounge Lizards, and a cast member of a NYC based troupe performing "Woody Sez. In 2007 she released her 5th CD, "Livin' on the Lucky Side.”
Darcie’s versatility is her strength. In the past few years she
has developed her own personal way of coaching music for adults and kids of all ages.
You've heard Darcie on the radio more often than you'd know, her playing and singing is on hundreds of people's CDs. Examples? Ani DiFranco, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Slaid Cleaves, Mary Gauthier, Eliza Gilkyson, and many of Lloyd Maines and Gurf Morelix's productions.
