Hello and welcome to my song 'Breathe'
The real beauty of being a singer-songwriter and musician is that, you get to do whatever you like with the songs you create.
Live from the Derby Folk Festival 2019
BREATHE is a rather simplistic little song but also very intricate in its make up. What inspired me to write this? well,
I was thinking (I do a lot of that) about all the stupid mistakes that I've made in life, and wouldn't want my children to do or follow in my footsteps.
Breathe the air I give to you
just don't give it back
sing the song I wrote for you
just don't sing it back
Walk the footsteps that I make
just don't follow me
take a ride upon a wing
but don't look down on me
I hope you enjoy this little song, many thanks for your support.

Derbyshire based Musician and Songwriter Darren Claxton, defies being pigeonholed, and celebrates the fact that each song tells a story and in a style all of its own. On his various music pages, you'll find songs of universal resonance that are accessible, yet never overly polished for the commercial market.
Darren was born of a need to write and perform original music across multiple genres. Catch any of his live performances and you'll find him moving seamlessly from folk, to indie, to blues, to heart-warming and immersive acoustic ballads. Yet it all manages to sound effortless and natural -- "strangely familiar" as one fan once called it.
Darren strives for his compositions to have memorable hooks and melodies that stand on their own, creating a strong musical foundation for his compelling heart felt lyrics. Darren says it’s all about the song and the emotion conveyed through the stories he tells. His music provides a “just right” touch of colour to support the emotional core of each song.
