Darryl Tookes (Voice/Songwriting)

Darryl Tookes (Voice/Songwriting)

It started with “Lifeguard”, Darryl Tookes’ first mass media exposure, and introduction to the formal music business.  In 1989 this poignant song with a universal message, reached number three on the Billboard adult contemporary music charts, putting Darryl immediately in the company of the likes of Barbara Streisand, Paul McCartney and Barry Manilow.  Since then Tookes has created a legacy by recording and touring with Sting, performing West Side Story with Leonard Bernstein conducting, working with Quincy Jones, Phil Ramone, and other greats.  Tookes is an uncompromising artist who is defined by unrelenting creativity.

 Darryl is an adjunct professor at the Tisch School of the Performing Arts at NYU, where he created, developed and implemented the musicianship curriculum for the New Studio on Broadway in the Drama Department to great success.  Tookes sits on the Board of Governors of the Recording Academy in New York, where he also serves on the Education Committee. He is a Member of the Arts Committee of the New York City Parks Foundation.  Among his past affiliations are two terms as Chair of the New York Singers Collective; and Board Member of the Society of Singers.
