Multi-talented songwriter/singer Darrell Ikelle caught our attention with a couple of his tracks.
“Crash Test Dummy” is the first one we got and it’s a blend of rock, soul, and funk. The production is rousing with its punchy drums, lush guitar arrangement, and smooth melodic runs. Ikelle sure doesn’t follow the norm and delivers such an engaging performance with his wide vocal range and heartfelt lyrics as well.
On “Like A Bird” he slows the tempo and delivers an insightful record that aims to push listeners beyond their comfort zone. He dwells on the mentality of taking chances in order to become better. The production here is soulful and has a soothing and reflective aesthetic that fits Ikelle’s engaging vocals and melodies.
