Darrel Treece-Birch, is a keyboardist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and an accomplished mix/mastering engineer.
His first performance was at the Fleetwood Marine Hall in 1975 as a very young 8-year old and he has not stopped performing since.
His professional music career spans more than 30 years and he shows no signs of slowing down, in fact, Melodic Revolution Records expects to be releasing his next solo album later in 2018.
Darrel has released three solo recordings with Melodic Revolution Records, ‘Celestial’ (2015), ‘No More Time’ (2016) and ‘Healing Touch’ (2017). Healing Touch eloquently show-cased Darrel’s musicality including all instruments being played by him; including the production, recording, mix/master engineering of the album, which was all Darrel. To complete this one-man project Darrel created the artwork for this release an original acrylic painting entitled ‘Starting Again’. Creating his own artwork is not new, Celestial album art was also an original painting by Darrel and the No More Time photo cover featured the artistic talents of his son Luke Treece-Birch.
Inspired by the early Electronica music of Oxygene and Equinox by Jean-Michel Jarre and ambient orchestration of Vangelis he bought his first synthesizer (Korg DW6000) at age 17. His inspirations came from Marillion, Yes and Genesis which propelled him into a band at 17, Fleetwood-based ‘Purple On The Storm’ where he would meet his long-time friend and writing partner Alan (Spud) Taylor. The band names changed throughout the years, but the members stayed fairly consistent including guitarist Martin Walker (Nth Ascension).
Today alongside his solo work, Darrel plays keyboards with the British Hard Rock/Melodic Rock band TEN whom he joined in 2011; also writing/recording and performing with original progressive rock band Nth Ascension.
