Daryl Myers, or Sgt Myers as his fellow U. S. Marines know him, didn’t know he could sing until his co-workers took him to a country bar for his 21st birthday and dared him to sing in a talent show. So he went home, memorized some songs, practiced and then took the stage the following week. A star was born. "After I got through, it was a rush, it was awesome," Myers said. "People were saying, ’Hey, you sound good.’"
Eight years later, Myers has parlayed that singing talent into his country debut compact disc, "Solid Gold," for sale at selected stores in the U. S. and Okinawa, Japan. He spent six months of his free time producing the CD. He wrote the lyrics to the 10 tracks, laid the music and sang the melodies and harmonies. And he did it all in his barracks room at Camp Schwab, where he set up his own recording studio in the corner of his room.
Several upbeat tunes and a couple of slow ballads intermixed with moderately paced tunes provide a variety of tempos and a flow throughout the production. Myers’ music is pure country in the same vein as artist like George Strait and Alan Jackson. Growing up listening to his parents favorite artist, such as, Conway Twitty, George Jones and Hank Williams, Myers says has influenced his style of music. The singers he said he’d most like to emulate are George Strait, Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt. And on a few songs you can hear a bit of Merle Haggard and David Alan Coe coming through. "I love to write and sing all kinds of music," says Myers, " but whatever I sing, it comes out sounding country, so I figured I’d just go with it." Country may be Myers’ favorite, but his influences also range from classical and jazz to R&B and rock.
"He has a real talent. With the limited resources he had to make that CD, he made something real worthwhile," says Sgt. Bryan McGhee, a friend and co-worker who listens to Myers sing at local bars and clubs. Myers’ strengths are his lyrics and voice, noted McGhee. "His songs have meaning to them - if you sit and listen to them ... you can tell its Daryl Myers. Many of the songs reflect his personal experiences."
In 1996, after discovering his talent, he formed a band. But like many groups trying to break into the music scene in Nashville, Tenn., he was a member of the "starving musicians" crowd. At that time though, Myers wasn’t sure if music was really what he wanted to pursue. he joined the Marine Corps in 1999 to serve his country, which he is proud to do, but also to travel and see what life was like outside of Mobile Al, where he was born and raised. But at the same time the Marine Corps helped kick-start his musical career.
A year before joining the Marine Corps, Myers started songwriting and realized music was what he wanted to do with his life. Originally, while in the Marine Corps, he had planned to just practice the craft of songwriting, write as many songs as he could and maybe make a few demos. He never thought he would be able to do all the things he has done. "I thought I’d be out in the field in the mud and dirt all the time." But once on Okinawa he had free time, so he had his equipment sent over. And with his newfound bonanza of military pay coming in every two weeks, he was able to buy a few items for his studio.
At first he wanted only to produce some demo songs for record labels and music publishers. But when fellow Marines in the barracks stopped by to see what he was up to, they’d hear his music and ask, ’Hey can you make me a copy of that,’" Myers said. Pretty soon he was making so many copies, he decided to make a CD. The first three hundred CDs he sold, he made with his CD burner and printer, but making copies of it on his computer took too long. So he went home to a studio in Mobile, Ala. and had his music professionally mastered and produced.
Be looking for Myers’ new CD coming soon. It will showcase his own original style of music even more so than "Solid Gold." Its country music, but with a mix of blues, rock, funk, jazz, and Latin on a few somgs, as well as your good ole crying in your beer songs.
