In addition to his role as co-owner of Chevalier’s, Darryl has just released a new studio album, “Radio Songs: Woody Guthrie in Los Angeles, 1937-1939,” via 213 Music.
With three critically acclaimed albums under his belt, he is also a historian and co-author of a forthcoming book (Angel City Press) on Guthrie’s early years in Los Angeles. “I started working on these songs after I received a research grant from the Woody Guthrie archives,” Darryl explains. “During his years in Los Angeles, Guthrie wrote dozens of original songs and performed them live on a daily show on KFVD. The songs tell us a great deal about the issues of the day in the late 1930s.”
