BBC Introducing – ‘Breathe’ by Darren Claxton

Breathe – Original Music by Darren Claxton

Hello Stishers and welcome to my song ‘Breathe’The real beauty of being a singer-songwriter and musician is that, you get to do whatever you like with the songs you create.

You can also here the studio version on Choon

BREATHE is a rather simplistic little song but also very intricate in its make up. What inspired me to write this? well, I was thinking (I do a lot of that) about all the stupid mistakes that I’ve made in life, and wouldn’t want my children to do or follow in my footsteps.


Breathe the air I give to you
just don’t give it back
sing the song I wrote for you
just don’t sing it back
Walk the footsteps that I make
just don’t follow me
take a ride upon a wing
but don’t look down on me

Thanks for listening to, supporting and commenting on my music posts!

The music he writes is often heartfelt acoustic indie folk with a sprinkling of rock and country influences, with an occasional world music flavour as heard on his track ‘Dragonfly’ . But most of all, it's his passive emotive thoughts and feelings that are delivered through that soothing vocal, and intricate guitar playing of his.
