Songs of Recovery is more than a musical journey – it’s a survivor’s memoire set to music. After his return from grad school abroad, alt/rock songwriter/guitarist and producer, Darro (Darro Chea), was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The rehabilitation process sent him back to square one, having to learn to speak, chew, and sing all over again.
“Each song from Songs of Recovery deals with a different situation dealing with my brain tumor,” Darro says of the album. “Sometimes it’s an angst-filled song commenting about how people think I’m fine because I appear physically healthy, or that I still get panic attacks just from walking down the street. Whatever the case is, each song is essentially dealing with PTSD or something that’s affected the last 9 years of my life without my knowledge.”
From the heavy opener “You’re Not Insane” to the delicate, pensive “DeJaVu” to the anthemic pop-punk closer “Undefined”, Songs of Recovery is both intimate and expansive, as it brings listeners along on Darro‘s journey.
