For the past year Daren Todd has literally been living in the It’s Future Time studio, quietly crafting an album that no one saw coming. Daren played every instrument on his debut, which tastefully features labelmate Sage throughout. This album is a freshly squeezed revelation, defiantly and effortlessly breaking down genre roles.
