Just a quick one from last night. Twas a rainy night and Don McLean's lyrics were running around in my head.

Vantablack - Novo Amor & Ed Tullett (Cover) by Daren Sirbough
I was moved so much when I heard the soaring melody and the rich harmony of this song. When I listened to the lyrics, I was arrested completely. The play on religion and the ambiguous lyrics that this song alludes to conjures up powerful emotions based on my own experiences. Isn’t it funny that music created on the other side of the world can have such an impact on your own life. It just goes to show that we are all connected in our hearts and in our experiences; that we can go through similar things and share stories with each other that resonate deeply. This version is my story to share with you.
Guitars, Bass and Synth done by yours truly.
A special thank you to Liam Hogan for laying down some epic drums.
Thank you for listening to the music. I hope it has moved you.
I've got an exciting music video coming out in the next couple of days so stay tuned. Meanwhile here's a photo taken from yesterday's recording session.
Been recording a lot and have another piece of music that I'm very happy to be sharing with you guys soon. 🎶🎶
When you're not sure what to do with your hands 🙋🙋🙋
2018.1.2 - 30,000 ft
30, 000 ft
Sitting here 30, 000 ft above sea level heading back to Sydney. I've had a great time off in Melbourne for new years and been inspired and refreshed by the city and Gary V. However, I'm scared of landing. I'm scared of landing, coming home and for things to go back to the way they were and that all the inspiration will not translate into action.
Time scares me. Time is this thing that never stops and brings you closer and closer to death. It's not death that I'm necessarily scared of. It's the I that I may not have done enough with my life before dying. That really scares me.
There's no point to this, no lesson to be learned. These are just my thoughts at 30, 000 ft.
Hello. So I just released another cover on my website to share with all of you free of charge. You can get it at darensirbough.com/music
There will be another one coming up next week.
I guess this is my Christmas gift to you 😀
Roads like this always get me. They remind me that the journey is more important than the destination. We are all a work in progress and we never reach the end goal. We are constantly changing just like the roads we travel.
