WHO AM I

"Just a pile of dirt and memories".

This line, gently lifted from Jeromy's as-yet-to-be-recorded autobiographical song "The Mississippi", deftly depicts his childhood home - a trailer park in Ames, IA - demolished years ago to pave way for new condominiums. Only fond memories fill the otherwise dreary surroundings of his childhood: feral cats, violent neighbors and a makeshift junkyard the kids used as a playground. Too young to understand poverty, but old enough to understand love, Jeromy would find safety and solace in the arms of his parents, Mark and Kathy Darling. Fast forward some 25 years and things are much different: he's celebrating over 12 years of marriage to his high school sweetheart Gretchen and they're relishing the wonderful little gifts that their sons Wyatt (born Oct. '09) and Wilder ( July '12) continue to pour into their lives.

After witnessing his younger sister overcome a brutal illness that nearly took her life on 3 occasions between 2003 and 2009, Jeromy has a new lease on life, a stronger resolve and renewed faith.

"I was made for Jesus and Rock 'n Roll."

A Year Of Living

A Year Of Living

These songs are old, even for me. All written somewhere between 2004 & 2005 as I tried to process what was happening to people I cared about. Drug abuse, betrayal & and shattered dreams were tearing apart some of my closest friends, further solidifying my own decision to embrace Jesus as the only sense in the madness that was another year of living. I recorded them back then but never really felt like they were finished. So this was my attempt to finally put them to rest.

Personal



You are something else. I will never forget these days…
