Close to Nowhere – Ep. 26

A new year is upon us!  And with it comes a brand new batch of fantastic music from Perth, Western Australia.  Of course recently you may have noticed some international artists have made their way into the Close to Nowhere family, and I must say it’s such a thrill to welcome them into the fold.

It all started with Will Echo from the U.K.  I then travelled over to Canada and gave Bing Willoughby a spot in the Close to Nowhere limelight.  Now, I’d like to welcome a brand new international artist to the show.  All the way from California, please make welcome – Darius Lux.

Darius truly has a an eclectic sound to his music, and his voice is such that he can take you from tragedy to triumph in a single phrase.  Many artists strive to achieve an honest, sympathetic, ‘from the heart’ tone to their sound – when you listen to Darius you soon realize that he doesn’t have to strive very hard, if at all, to draw you in and take you to where he’s going.  This is a rare gift, and one that Darius has learnt to embrace and deliver in such a beautiful way.  I don’t like to ‘over-sell’ the artists who appear on my show, but I assure you that once you hear Darius Lux, you’ll know I haven’t even come close to expressing what he has to offer.  In a word – brilliant.

You can get his latest release “Time is Now” right here:
