Songwriter/singer Daramola has worked behind the scenes, producing for gospel acts like LaCrae and Billboard-charting duo, Social Club Misfits in the past. He made our best new music list a while ago with “Lotto”, the lead single off his newly released album, The Last Time I Tried.
Last Time I Tried is a collection of stories with a narrative that explores the motions of his past relationship with a lover. He switches across languages, inserting choice lines of Yoruba and pidgin English in unexpected places. Each song is almost stripped bare letting Daramola’s voice find clarity and balance without drowning in the instrumentals. The album is almost a solo job spare a feature from Karen Inder on “Dream” where he reveals his feelings and desire to be trusted by someone especially one he has feelings for.
We will be bringing you cuts from Daramola’s album in the coming weeks, but for now, you can listen to The Last Time I Tried off iTunes or on Youtube playlist below:
