When evening came, it was time to do his chores again. "It was a lot of work and a lot of hours, but looking back, it was a lot of fun," says Darren. Anyone raised around ranchers and farmers knows the meaning of manual labor. And, as Darren got a little older, he found a job "digging in the dirt." With shovel in hand, he went to work. This led to the start his own construction company where he worked from dawn till dusk six days a week to build his business.
As Darren says, "I still dig in the dirt but instead of a shovel, I use my Trac-hoe." Aside from commandeering a successful construction company, Darren has also owned restaurants and a night club. Darren Hincks' hard-working background is the key to his inspired songwriting talent. As Darren explains, "When I was ten years old, my Dad bought me a guitar and taught me a few chords. After a while, I got to where I could play music pretty well. The music allowed me to dream of a life I thought I might never have, and to dream of places I thought I might never see.
When you come from a life of hard work, you learn how to dream." The songs that Darren Hincks' composes are bits and pieces of the life of a hard-working dreamer. His songs are ones that the common man, and woman, can relate to…songs about hopes and dreams, love and heartache. Listen to his music and get to know Darren Hincks. Read more on Last.fm.
