Darryl Purpose
When Darryl Purpose was 16 years old, his mother put a book called Beat the Dealer in his Christmas stocking. He went to Las Vegas as a teenager and began a career as professional card player  and still calls this the "only real job I've ever had." Years later he took time off to walk across the country for peace, and fell in with a bad crowd  musicians & peaceniks. In 1996, inspired by his work with a traveling band of musical activists, Darryl began to tour nationally as a solo singer-songwriter. Eight years, six CD's and a thousand-plus shows later, he was headlining venues like the Freight and Salvage, Club Passim, McCabes, The Bluebird Cafe, The Kennedy Center, and the Kerrville Folk Festival MainStage.

In 2005, he inexplicably set down his guitar and took a 7 year sabbatical in the rocky mountains. During this time he shepherded the release of Singer-Songwriter Heaven, the songs of Kevin Faherty and continued to co-captain the Second Strings Project, which is responsible for delivering over twenty thousand sets of guitar strings to those who need them all around the world. In 2009, he was inducted into the Blackjack Hall of Fame, one of 17 members, including Ed Thorp, the man who wrote that book that his mother put in his Christmas stocking at 16. He says that he also "got healthy, in multiple ways."

After seven years away from the singer- songwriter scene, Darryl Purpose is back to making music, with a new energy and a new flair for connecting with audiences. 2012 saw Darryl record his first CD of original material in 10 years - Next Time Around, produced by Billy Crockett for the Blue Rock Artists label. Called "a masterpiece" and "Purpose's best effort yet" by DJ's. Live performance is his strength as he connects his audience to his songs with a storyteller's heart.
