His first solo effort, "Swan Girth"(BlueSanct), under the project name, TILTMASTER, was released to much critical acclaim in 2001. Mostly acoustic, with sparse arrangements, his songs settled around the darker themes of love, loss and regret. During his last days in Boston, DARRYL BLOOD gathered together a small band of friends to record what would become "This Isn't Goodbye"(BlueSanct), a personal narrative that explores the many sides of transition and change. The new CD leans towards an Indie/Roots sound with a warm, vintage sensibility. Bolder arrangements paint the foreground; Acoustic Guitar, Cello, Banjo, Harmonica, Piano and Drums blend together in a mix of mid-tempo pop songs and sentimental ballads.
It is probably his most cohesive effort to date, capturing a spontaneous sense of urgency and optimism. With musical influences from the Beatles to Beck, DARRYL BLOOD merges 60's Folk with modern Indie Rock. Seeping through his musical past can be heard an array of heroes including Nick Drake, Donovan, Syd Barrett and Neil Young, and modern artists Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Wilco and Radiohead.
