About the event
2009 “Songwriter of the Year Darryl Ellyson, a Virginia native, is known and loved for his rich voice, exceptional songwriting abilities, and the bluesy soul that permeates his sound. Darryl was given the New Horizons award for “Best New Artist” by the Virginia Organization of Lyricists and Composers in 2009, and his song "Raindrops Falling Down" won an Honorable mention in the 2010 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, the Jazz/Blues Category. In 2015 he did it again by winning for his song "I'm So Worried". His song writing focuses on the revelations of life, from the vulnerabilities and pain of love and loss, to the happiness and joys of life in simply living it. “Soulful contemporary Blues” is how Darryl describes his sound, and it proves an apt description when you hear him play. His style entails everything from the old Delta Blues sound to more contemporary rock and country styles, all incorporated in a song. Darryl released two CD's of all original music in 2016 and 2017 that received critical acclaim, and a nomination to the International Songwriting competition for his song, "Take It Back", Darryl does it all and he does it well, and the Richmond music scene is a better place with him in it.
