The Whipping Post
Bringing a taste of my past, the love of great classics, and outstanding talents from my youth. This is our LIVE audio and video footage from the dates though out the summer.
I hope you enjoy watching as much as we did bring it to life! Summer of 2019
Now 40 plus years after bringing these songs to life as the Voice of Headpins,
I gave in to the requests that greet us at every DMP show,
"Are you gonna be playing these songs?"
I wasn't looking to be what we were not, so there were only a few Headpins songs in our LIVE show.
The Guys in the band came up with a solution,
"Let's do a Medley."
For the sake of old times!
This Video came together in the midst of the first COVID lock down. The world opened up for a brief time and in 2 weeks the concept and video came to BE.
Previously the music had been recorded separately in 4 of our home studios and by unbelievable circumstance Mark Greenhalgh as director/editor
Christoph Mayer @ Peak Technologies along with his awesome film crew were available.
of course following all protocol ........
I think WE ROCKED it!
Our live show will NOW brings you all the Headpins singles, our wonderful list of originals from 'Never Look Back or Flying Solo' and a few re-discovered classics now pack our 90 minute show
Dedicated to any and all who have found their own strength in times of challenge!
Recorded LIVE in Guelph, Hamilton and Kingston, Ontario.
Thanks to those who came out and partied with us.
Just remember no matter what,
"Don't Stop Keepin' On!"

Get What You Give
One of my favorite song from this 1990's era. I've worked out to "Get What u Give" for 10 years and felt this was an emotional statement so needed to be shared in these trying times. Hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it. Originally recorded by the Young Radicals.
Thanks to JamienJeff@themetalshop for their support and expertise.

CRY to ME
Recorded in 1990 with the first version of my Solo Project called the 'Unsung Heroes' signed to Warner Music.
This track was sent to me a few years ago, I immediately wrote some lyrics but wasn't happy so I put it down knowing I'd get back to them when the time was right. 5 times I went back, still frustrated with my progress. Finally the words came together locked in my home over the 2020 Covid lock down. Trips from Vancouver to Toronto to lay the vocals and then another lock down ... I decided to hell, keep the flow going. Rented a Green Room, masks on faces we filmed for 5 hours in 100 plus degrees, no Air conditioning but lots and LOTS of lights. We were sweating BIG!
So very glad I stayed with it, Thanks Gary Borden.
LOve the tune and what it means to me.
TRICK OF THE LIGHT
2023, We're getting off to a great start.
'Trick of the Light' is a song I recorded for a Escape Music in the UK.
I fell in love with the song immediately, It had a 007 feel that had me Hooked! My 3rd attempt at filming, producing and editing for the Band.
I'm also exited to announce that there is another single coming form the UK. I've been invited to join in again with the crew of
Escape Music, Khalil Turk and Bruce Mee for the 'Circle for Friends 2'
House Of Shadows
'Circle of Friends 2', Cherokee Moon.
This is the 2nd invitation Darby has received to participate from Khalil Turk / Escape Music UK and Bruce Mee / Fire Works Magazine. The full CD will be out this summer and the list of incredible talent involved will blow you away. Stay tuned!!!
