Darnell "Big D" Cole is an Independent Rock/Americana artist. As a Blues and Soul musician, his art is centered around his captivating electric guitar, taking one on a journey emotionally and spiritually.
In 2011, he released his first solo, acoustic album: "Loving Antics", followed up by "On the low" and "For the First Time". A young Darnell was ambitious for bigger and better things, eventually leading to the start of blues rock band: Porcelain Hill.
Darnell, at the helm of Porcelain Hill, would go on to tour 9 different countries, all booked and setup by himself, as well as write and release 2 more albums, and an EP. During this period he would really cut his teeth, opening up for/sharing the stage with more established artists such as Missing Persons, Iron Butterfly, Sister Sledge, Dru Hill, John Illsley, The Wailers, Ana Popovic, Walter Trout, Robert Jon & The Wreck, Bernie Marsden and more! During this time, Big D became a Vintage Guitars Endorser, receiving the honor of having several signature/custom guitars with the company, as well as being featured on several of their publications.
In 2019, he booked a 6 month UK tour for Porcelain Hill, and led the band to victory in several Battle of the Bands despite having bass player lineup changes. This was also the year he really started to breakout individually, earning a spot performing at the Electric Picnic festival in Ireland, alongside such artists as Amy Montgomery, The Strokes, Billie Eilish, and The 1975 to name a few.
