Darin first began plunking out tunes on his parents' living room piano in Oregon at the age of 11. Recently he's been doling out new music left and right, at times even authoring song lyrics. Band credits include Senior Supermonster, Soul Candy and the Traffic Jam, and Wabi Sabi and the Perfect Fifth. Against his better judgement, Darin serves as the band leader for Sketch Eclectic, and he's a pretty good roadie and wine bottle opener, too! Darin is an entrepreneur, having launched an online bodybuilding coaching business. If you're looking to prepare your body for a noteworthy event, check out his page at fivestarrphysique.com.
Denia and Darin met online in 2013, and have been inseparable ever since. Some compelling life experiences have recently nudged Denia to find her songwriting voice, and so have Darin's musical compositions. Theresa Jones is a frequent collaborator with a powerhouse voice and a heart on fire. Having first met on a theatrical stage, Denia and Theresa have been performing together for more than 10 years. Previous band credits include Soul Candy and the Traffic Jam, Dave and Denia, and Wabi Sabi and the Perfect Fifth. For 20 years, Mrs. Kirk has been sharing her love of the arts with elementary students in the Knoxville area - currently leading Webb Lower School's Art and Theatre Workshop programs.

Theresa was born in Britain, and grew up in a traveling Air Force family - experiencing her first taste of performing live in her elementary school's Christmas pageant. Known by her friends as Tres' ( derived from the British pronunciation of Theresa), she practiced singing in choirs, musical theatre, and karaoke bars. Denia and Tres' were first introduced onstage at the Oak Ridge Playhouse, and they instantly bonded during a memorable costume malfunction. Performing with an eleven -piece band seasoned Theresa's unique vocal style, as well as her stamina over the years. Tres' works a data analyst, and moonlights among several musical endeavors in the evening. Band credits include Soul Candy and The Traffic Jam, and Wabi Sabi and the Perfect Fifth. In addition to providing vocals and songwriting contributions for Sketch Eclectic, Tres' is a featured singer in events hosted by musician Wendel Werner, and serves as a lead vocalist for The Deltas.
