Darnell "Big D" Cole on SoundBetter

I'm a man who wears many hats, and plays many guitars. I have over 20 years experience, 7 of which are professional. If you want Blues, RNB, Soul, funk, something happy, something sad, dark, bright, gritty or clean you name it, I can help take your project to the next level.

Born in the Blues, and raised in Rock and roll, 'feeling' the music is my specialty. I can provide Guitar for Blues, country, Rock, Reggae, RNB, Hip-Hop Soul, folk, Alt, and a bit of classical. I have a real knack for songwriting, and can sing for the same genres listed.
For my own musical journey, I front original classic rock'n blues band Porcelain Hill, have toured over 9 different countries, have personally performed/shared the stage with the likes of Walter trout, Del Bromham, Thomas Blug, and Ana Popavic, I've crafted jingles/custom music pieces for Online Radio Host April Duran, and Have Guitar Credits for Hip-Hop Artist Cam Archer.
My gear is top notch and my turn around time is very fast. Let me know when you need it done. I have a mobile home studio featuring the latest edition of Ableton Live, with a Focusrite interface, and a variety of guitars/microphones.
When we start your project, please send me any and all instrumental tracks, (preferably .wav format) and notes for the vibe/feel you want, and any additional examples/scratch tracks, they don't need to be good, I'll help make them good. For vocal work, please also include a lyric sheet and scratch vocal/melody guide. I will play/sing with heart and soul, so whatever feel you're looking for, whatever vibe you want, whatever sound or dream is in your head, explain it and let's bring it to life!
