Born and raised in New Orleans, Darby has always had a passion for music and singing. He first began singing as a tenor in his high school choir and then spent a number of years developing his voice and ability as karaoke singer. In 2008, Darby officially began his singing career as the original lead vocalist of the Houston based variety/cover band Coldshot. It was during his 5 year stint with Coldshot that Darby cultivated his talent as a vocalist, taking on and successfully emulating vocals from artists such as Journey, Guns n’ Roses, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and others. Being a big Zeppelin fan Darby was thrilled at the opportunity to become the front man for Whole Lotta Led and is excited about the chance to pay tribute to Robert Plant, one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time, while helping to bring the music of Led Zeppelin to new audiences in a live format.
