Biography

2013 is set to be a busy year for the electro-pop artist with the release of You Don’t Know Me (Shark Meat, March 2013), the first music video and single from the forthcoming album Short Story Long (Shark Meat, June 2013). Darren teamed up with Director Hector M. Sanchez Jr. to film two music videos for the album after spending three months filming Darren Ockert: A Mini Documentary, which made its big screen debut at FilmSlam (Ezian Theater, FL) in February 2013 and won the top honors of “Best Short Film”.

His 2012 release, The Rain From London (Shark Meat), a four-track EP featuring a title track that tips a Union Jack umbrella to London’s famous wet weather. Inspired by ‘80s UK pop, Darren has harnessed that energy and infused it with a fresh sophistication for a sound that is memorably powerful and poetic. The EP garnered five nominations in the 2012 RightOutTV Music & Video Awards and the track This Modern Life (1984) won the award for Best Electronic Song. The song Force Of Gravity was also a finalist in the 2012 UK Songwriting Contest.

Prior to The Rain From London, Darren released the single and music video Celebrity du Jour (Shark Meat, 2009), which was featured on MTV Networks LOGO channel. It was filmed on location in New York City and starred actress Cynthia LaForte, known for her roles on hit TV shows Law & Order and Royal Pains.
