His teenage years were filled with vocal and instrumental training in school bands and regional choirs, and by the time he entered college his talent as a singer and keyboardist was widely recognized. In 1977, Coley's unique musical presence earned him the opportunity to perform with the legendary Hawkins Family. As a singer with Edwin Hawkins and later a songwriter and musical director for Tramaine Hawkins, Coley began to establish a name for himself on a national level.

Lead vocal appearances on several high profile albums with Hawkins family and with James Cleveland's Gospel Music Workshop of America led to Coley's solo debut, "Just Daryl", in 1985.
