She started writing tunes and poetry as a kid, drawing motivation from Bob Dylan’s becomes of phrase as well as the deceptive simpleness from the Velvet Underground. Dealing with multi-instrumentalist Tag Spencer and drummer Will Rigby, Darby released her debut recording, Naked Period, in 2000. In 2002, she made an appearance around the Kris Kristofferson tribute Nothing at all Left to reduce and added to a set of 2003 compilations, Acuarela Tunes from your Spanish label Acuarela, and Vision from the Beholder III, a series from Tract Information with a restricted release of 500 copies. Darby also released her second recording, Fantasia Ball, which discovered her embracing a far more lo-fi, intimate strategy that included the audio of her doggie barking and refrigerator humming. 2 yrs later, she released The Magdalene Laundries, a assortment of tunes loosely inspired from the Irish house for wayward ladies. In 2012, Darby came back with IV (Intravenous), among her most hushed and hypnotic attempts yet.
