Darius Cortez is an emerging singer/songwriter from the DMV who is making his professional solo recording debut in 2022. Born in DC and raised in Maryland, although he is just getting started as a recording artist Darius is no newcomer to the music world. He started singing when he was just 9 years old. At 18 he wowed the audience at a high school talent show. That’s when he and his family realized how talented he is.
Now 26 years old, Darius Cortez is ready to go public with his music. On March 25, 2022 he released his debut single “Forever and More” to all major streaming services. The track is a touching and soulful love song from an impressive new talent.
Ambient synths introduce the song and set a cinematic soundscape. A smooth and bluesy guitar picks arpeggios over an abstract downtempo beat as Darius steps to the mic. The singer delivers a soulful performance with a classic 90’s R&B vibe as he sings of the ups and downs of a growing love.
This record takes every feeling of love, from the moments of hurt and sometimes anger to happiness and what seems like a moment to live in foreverDarius Cortez
