DARRELL GOLDMAN BIO
In an era of ever morphing styles and sounds across today's Country music landscape, Darrell Goldman and his Austin, TX band are making their way around Texas playing as many honky-tonks, dance halls, bars and other venues as they can across the Lone-Star state. Always wowing the crowd and winning new fans along the way, Darrell's style of Country speaks to classic Country enthusiasts, those who embrace the newer sounds of today's evolving modern Country genre and even those who say they never really thought they liked Country music until they heard Darrell's style of Country.
From venues like Driftwood's famous Salt Lick, Crossroads Saloon and Steakhouse in Fredericksburg, Dance Across Texas in Austin, Coupland Dance Hall, Love and War in Texas in Grapevine and Plano, fans of all ages and backgrounds enjoy Darrell's original music as well as the band's own versions of many classics from George Strait to Merle Haggard and Gary Stewart in addition to a mix of little surprises like Cherry Bomb by Mellencamp and what one 2015 Shiner Rising Star judge referred to as a "stellar version" of Elton John's Rocket Man Darrell "should record".
A typical Darrell Goldman set would include nearly every song off his debut album, “The Bed I’ve Made,” in addition to an ever growing number of new, yet to be recorded originals. Ever the class act, these talented, consummate professionals can play their originals, classics and other favorites up to four hours, captivating many of the most discerning of musical talents like a welcoming, rejuvenating float down the Guadalupe on a Texas summer day.
In the mood for some George Strait? Check. How 'bout some Randy Rogers, Alan Jackson, or Pat Green? Check, and check. Mixing seamlessly with these greats, Darrell's smooth, rockin', classics-in-the-making originals have prompted fans more than once to ask of his originals, "Now who was that last song by again?" Whether his own version of well-known favorites or Darrell's own thoughtful originals, there's always something for everyone to like.

"...there are several glimmers of brilliance in the album "The Bed I've Made" that make the listener
understand that this album is no vanity project - it was a labor of love that has been thought about for many, many years. That makes Darrell Goldman's debut album a major surprise from a new Country music talent who may very well be leaving his own imprint on Country music with one very well made "bed"."
