Biography

Darwin Hobbs is an American gospel music singer noted for his vocal similarity to classic soul singer Luther Vandross. In addition to his career as a gospel artist, Hobbs and his ensemble The Darwin Hobbs Choir have also performed both studio and live background vocals for artists such as Jars Of Clay, BeBe Winans, Michael W. Smith, T.D. Jakes, Shirley Murdock, and countless others. Hobbs also played a small acting role in the HBO movie Boycott.

Darwin Hobbs is especially popular for his spirit moving song ‘He’s able’ which has taken the breath of Nigerians away. The song indeed has been an inspiration for many, many, many gospel singers.

His debut solo project (Mercy) was characterized by an anointing pieced together in soulful song with the help of producers Fred Hammond and Victor and Cedric Caldwell (see review).

Darwin Hobbs turns around swiftly on Vertical, his sophomore project with EMI Gospel, by combining both some of the same, and some fresh twists too.

Production mainstays Victor and Cedric Caldwell return to the fold, and join forces with Tommy Sims, whose Positive Movement production house has blown notorious in recent years. A fascinating choice of guest artists also marks this effort.

Crucial to the album is the groovified “Cast All Your Cares”, which harnesses the writing hooks of Angie Winans and the brothers Caldwell, is powered by the guitar finesse of Paul Jackson Jr., and features a strong chorus supporting Hobb’s soulful delivery on lead.
