Darius Martin is a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and producer who creates expansive alt R&B music with catchy pop hooks and island-inspired melodies. Drawing from life’s complexities, he aims to forge a deep connection with his audience by infusing his music with raw emotion and personal experiences. Born in El Paso, Texas, and raised in Alamogordo, New Mexico, Martin’s musical journey began after a significant illness redirected his focus from athletics to music. 


Seemingly a romantic optimist at heart, Darius gears up strong for Saint you-know-who’s day with a new song that’s all about saying “YES” to love in a big way, no matter how it comes or even where. “Like We Used To Before” is a bit of a celebration of romanticism, of believing and surrendering oneself to the sweet call of love and sharing a meaningful and ever-lasting moment with that special someone.

“This song represents all the wonderful times and memories you’ve had with someone; knowing that even though the road we chose brought us here, those very same roads will always lead us home.”

Through his airy, uplifting R&B/pop sound, Darius delivers a refreshingly optimistic and affirming narrative about appreciating the finer details and the good memories of that wonderful chemistry. It’s a song to slow down and breathe in the comforting scent of whatever signifies love for you. Perhaps a candle-lit dinner, perhaps the sea breeze, perhaps your S.O’s perfume.

Influenced by legends such as Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, he honed his craft at the Los Angeles Film Institute, graduating in 2020. He has captivated an expanding fanbase with singles like “Options,” “Some Time,” “Bottles,” “Secrets,” and “Sparks Don’t Fly,” the latter of which seeks to support survivors of domestic violence through a partnership with the nonprofit organization Doorways. “Like We Used To Before,” promises to encapsulate the enchantment of love while emphasizing the significance of living in the present.
