S1 Episode 164 - Interview Darren Michael Boyd - Canadian Guitarist and Songwriter

PressPlay Lifestyle Inspired

They say that laughter is the best medicine, but for Canadian guitarist and songwriter Darren Michael Boyd, music has been the ultimate cure. After a life-altering car accident, the Ottawa and Toronto-based musician created his debut album, “Lifting The Curse,” as a therapy for the physical and psychological complications that followed the accident. Painstakingly writing, recording, and producing the 9-track album himself, Boyd only called upon outside help for one track, “Was It Something I Said,” which features drums by Emily Dolan Davies (The Darkness, Kim Wilde.) Mastering was done by Harry Hess at H-Bomb Mastering (Barenaked Ladies, Danko Jones, Monster Truck.) Watch “The Earth Is B Flat” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VbNI5y054c Watch the brand new video for “was it something I said” (filmed in isolation) at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AIs9iv5yNE Darren has toured and recorded with a variety of artists, such as Black Ju-Ju, Creeping Beauty, and Famous Underground (featuring Juno award-winning vocalist Nicholas Walsh). He was invited multiple occasions to privately audition for platinum-selling artist Fefe Dobson, and asked to write songs for Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico Cooper, and long time bassist Chuck Garric’s band Beasto Blanco. Darren received a scholarship to Guitar Workshop Plus in Toronto, with some of the best players in the business as instructors (Paul Gilbert/Billy Sheehan/Sue Foley). He has shared the stage with such acts as One-Eyed Doll, Wednesday 13, Yngwie Malmsteen, Stryper, Beasto Blanco, and Lee Aaron.  In the spring of 2019 he joined the Mississippi Mudds Theatre Group to play guitar for a sold-out run of Queen’s We Will Rock You. The Mississippi Mudds won the Ottawa Faces Magazine Award for Favourite Theatre Group for that year. In the spring of 2020, Boyd was voted best local musician, and best guitar teacher, in the Ottawa Valley/North Grenville Readers Choice Awards. He is currently hard at work on a follow up to “Lifting the Curse”, with an early fall release in sight.

#10 The Magic of Show Business - Turning ideas into Productions - With magician, producer & cabaret genius Michael Boyd

The Show Pace - Show Business, Live Entertainment and Performing Arts

#10 The Magic of Show Business | Putting swords through a box is one magical trick he is accustomed to, but thinking outside of that box as a show takes to the stage involves so much more. Michael Boyd is someone who can do all of those things. As a show evolves from a mere idea, Michael journeys through the business with a vast repertoire of 9 diverse and original shows behind him. Michael's story in show business started when he was a child inspired by grandfather who was a magician and has flourished ever since. We discuss his entry into the show world from his inceptions as a corporate magician through to his family life on the road. Michael's family is not just blood, but also those who he surrounds himself with, and he delves into the importance in bringing together the very best team he can to bring his ideas to life. Many artists struggle finding enjoyment in the backstage process of entertainment but this is where Michael differs. He shares with us his interest in every element of a production from his involvement in creating elaborate head pieces, through to his relationships with ticketing providers and everything in between. The sales side of show business and the marketing of shows can be daunting for any performer (to say the least) but this is one area which Michael thrives on. His passion for every area leaves no stone unturned and in this episode he discusses his insight into the booking process, the marketing elements, the audience relationships and how he brings it all together touring many of his many shows on stage in the bright lights, night after night. We go in depth to discover what kinds of deals Michael does with his venues and how becoming a master of your art form can open the door to every opportunity within the entertainment world.
