2016 Retrospective

2016 Retrospective

First and foremost, thank you all for such a great year (musically). We were able to release our first record as Darling Valley in 2016 and the feedback continues to be amazing. The kind words mean so much and believe me, we read/hear all of them and take them to heart. As we’ve just wrapped up 2016, we wanted to put together a little retrospective on some highlights from the end of the year. Again, thank you so much for all your support, and we look forward to having even more fun in 2017.
