5 Questions: Singer Songwriter Darryl Rahn

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Darryl Rahn has been releasing records and touring since he was 15. His distinct voice and narrative writing style have earned him spots on the same stage as Wild Child, Moe, Guster, and Hudson Taylor. In November, he released his 5th LP, Adult Small, which was produced by Sam Skinner of Pinegrove. “There’s a sincerity in Rahn’s lyricism that we don’t hear enough of in music right now,” says Ear to the Ground.

1. What’s been keeping you up at night?
In short, love. It feels like I’ve been waking a lot of emotions up from hibernation these past few months, which is equal parts amazing and terrifying.

2. What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen or heard lately?
“Heart Like a Levee” by Hiss Golden Messenger has been on repeat. Their music has been on my radar for a minute, but that song stopped me in my tracks.

3. What’s the most exciting thing you’re working on right now?
Just the next batch of songs. The lyrics I’m writing now feel a little truer to how I actually think and speak, so I’m excited to see them come together.

4. If you could add anyone, alive or dead to your team, who would it be?
Blake Mills. I’d love to have him produce something of mine.

5. When the movie of your life is made, what will it be called?
It’s Pronounced ‘Ron’
