Darden Smith (born March 11, 1962, in Brenham, Texas) is an Austin-based singer-songwriter known for his lyrics and for weaving folk and Americana influences with rock, pop, and the musical roots of his home state. His debut album, "Native Soil," was released in 1986. His fourteenth album, Love Calling, came out August 27, 2013. Over the past decade, Smith has developed two programs, The Be An Artist Program (2003) and SongwritingWith (2011).

Nanci Griffith sings harmony vocal on "Two Dollar Novels. Lyle Lovett sings harmony on five songs. This one's a gem. Smith is just breaking out and developing his style.

Exclusive Prime pricing. It says something for Darden Smith back in his younger days that he could get Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett to guest on vocals - on his first album! It's not hard to see why they would though. This is really a first album from a young guy? Darden has such an ear for a distinctive melody and a curious lyric, that each of these songs becomes your friend after just a few listens. Two Dollar Novels" is an especially fine song. So good in fact, that I'm always surprised Nanci Griffith didn't record it for herself.

Darden Smith faced a proverbial crossroads five years ago. He was going through a divorce, had suddenly found himself without a record deal for the first time in about 10 years and wondered if he had the energy to continue his career. He turned to his constant salvation: music. The result is an engaging new album, Sunflower, released April 23 on DualTone. Smith – Every now and then, I thought about it, but only to try to find something else in music. I did a symphony, scored some dance/theater stuff, did some commercials.
