Update Summer 2016: Producer Darren Clarke has moved Clarke Lane Music to Nashville TN.

A huge move for us but with our clients located all around the country these days, it makes sense to be located in Music City – a hub of some of the worlds most talented artists and creatives.

What are we working on these days? Darren is busy producing an extensive catalogue of instrumental Vintage Guitar tracks for AirTime Inc. featuring artists including James Burton, Jim Horn and Lee Rocker. He is producing the projects but features as the primary guitar player. Darren is also mixing and mastering the project but some of the songs have taken him to Abbey Road Studios in London to be mastered with Alex Wharton. This was a treat for Darren and the whole project is a guitar players dream paying homage to boogie woogie, surf guitar and rock and roll.

In addition to the Guitar projects, Darren is producing two top Podcasts with one (Perpetual Traffic) about to hit the 1 million downloads mark, this is for Digital Marketer. The other (The Commercial Investor) has just launched. Darren does advanced audio editing, content shaping and custom music for these weekly episodes. Darren’s reputation as one of the top guys in the audio space continues to open doors for him.

On a more personal note the Clarkes are embracing their new adventure with their two young children and are excited to build a new studio, this time in their own home. Darren and Jessie still write and collaborate with other song writers. The most notable and fun project this year is their collaboration with Eikon, a British EDM duo that covered a handful of the Clarke songs on their EP “G.D.W.T” (short for Darren’s song, “God Does Wonderful Things”). Listen to that EP here:)

We discovered Eikon by hearing their cover of our song on YouTube. Eikon crafts a totally new take on ‘I Love Your Presence’ which has been recorded many times by a variety of people over the years. We instantly loved their vibe as well as David’s signature vocals.
So we reached out to connect with them to say “Nice work”. ‘G.D.W.T” is the result of a friendly chat that turned into an un-expected collaboration; an EP of Hand of God Covers and one original. We can’t wait for it to get out there. It means the songs will end up in ears we never could have reached. And though Eikon has a whole different style than what comes out of us, we love it!

So you can Pre-Order the album NOW at our Bandcamp site and download / stream their killer version of ‘I Love Your Presence’ immediately. The rest will be available to you as of February 1!

Money from this site’s sales will go straight to us and our Moving fund! If you buy on iTunes or anywhere else that will support the Daves (Eikon) and they deserve it. They’ve done some great work here. There’s no hard copy of this available at this point, download only.

Thanks for your support! Please do share this latest offering. It’s far from typical!

We’ve just uploaded a live video we shot yesterday of Darren singing and playing Hand of God.

This is the title track of our latest record. ‘Hand of God’ is a raw and real song written from the heart for a friend. Our friend, an atheist, says music is one of the only things that makes him wonder and think God could be real. But like so many people, he struggles with the question of suffering. He can’t reconcile it. Darren wrote this song for him, inspired by their conversations and the very real struggle that we all share.
