ABOUT DARRYL

I’m the Founder and CEO of Electric Hawk! Hard to pinpoint exactly when exactly I founded it as it’s been an idea I’ve had with the logo in hand for 3 years now back when I was living in my hometown of Rockford, IL. Currently have been living in Chicago since 2017. Electric Hawk was a small side project of me blogging and writing something up once every few months and tweeting jokes for an EDM market that quickly took a jump into a full-time project in 2019.

The core of Electric Hawk’s message is something I’ve coined as “music-sharing culture”, a movement that I am trying to build that is based around the vision I have where music listeners of all kinds of preferences can band together instead of locking themselves into one niche or one singular artist’s fanbase.

If we can encourage our community to share music instantly with each other and without hesitation, and reciprocate that energy back to one another, we’re capable of helping both the big artists continue to thrive but also equally spotlight the underground kid producing music in his bedroom who wishes with every bone in his body he could get 100 plays on SoundCloud for some awesome song he worked on for months but has no one to share it with.

This forms a connection between all of us stronger than any other fanbase may be capable of. A community with no limits.
