Michael Darling

Michael Darling is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer from Madison, WI, inspired by contemporary artists like Perfume Genius, Lana Del Rey, and Father John Misty. He blends elements of indie pop, folk rock, and jazz to create lyrically reflective, emotionally charged music that feels both familiar yet pleasantly subversive. Though a lifelong musician, he only began releasing music under his own name in 2020 with his debut single "Drive". In 2021 he followed up with additional releases and live performances in the Madison area, sending off the year by quitting his day job to pursue music full-time. Michael is currently finishing production on his debut EP and finding more performance opportunities both in Madison and the surrounding Midwest.
