The Darling Suns
Steven Fiore’s career reads like a legendary round of two truths and a lie: co-writing with Art Garfunkel, singing with Jeff Goldblum’s jazz band, and garnering more than 17 million Spotify streams. But it’s all true – every word of it. This unfiltered honesty ultimately powers Fiore’s YOUNG MISTER to be more than just pretty melodies, but rather profoundly moving storytelling. Fiore got his break as a songwriter for Universal Music Group Publishing in Los Angeles, securing cuts for artists like Howie Day and Ryan Cabrera, but Young Mister’s sacred sense of introspection has afforded him an artistic output that hits far closer to home. Since launching the project in 2016, Young Mister’s trio of albums (2016’s self-titled debut, 2019’s Sudden Swoon and 2020’s This Is Where We Are Now) have received acclaim from fans and outlets like Consequence, American Songwriter, and alike for an adroit, dreamlike balance of folk, Americana, and pop – all written with wistful sentimentality and swirling, meditative lyricism.
The Darling Suns combine modern indie with folk and alternative roots. Taking influence from early 2000's indie rock, the band forms a familiar sound but strikes a path in their own direction. They pride themselves on their visual and emotive lyrics as much as their instrumentation and arrangement.
Formed in 2017 in the Chicagoland area, drawing from front man Robert Krause’s solo work, the band began writing together yielding their first full length effort "Midnight Feelings" in August 2019. After a lineup change, the band re-focused their sound and returned to the drawing table, producing the single "Afterglow", released in late 2019. A decidedly more indie rock feel, this set the pace for more new material to come. By March the next year they solidified their new sound with the release of the five track EP titled "Better Off".
The Darling Suns released their latest singles “Fine” in August 2021 and "Malaise" in January 2022 with plans of a larger project to follow.
