As a solo performer....
Amber Darland has been performing regionally and nationally since 2004.
Her intensely personal music has the passion reminiscent of Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Shawn Colvin and the
soulfulness of k.d. lang, the Carpenters and Dar Williams.
Darland is a master at making the simple, evocative.
"In a world of monochromatic singer-songwriters, Amber stands out as one who paints in many colors." - Jamie Anderson
