Winner of 9 major awards in the U.S.A  and 4 times nominated in the British Blues Awards.

His second album Independence went on to win multiple awards and firmly establish him as a real force to be reckoned with. An unplugged album recorded live at the Legendary Capitol Records Studios in Hollywood followed and in its first week of release became a pick of the month in the prestigious IBBA chart in the U.K. Sewell was in fact one of the most played artists as reported by the IBBA across the whole of 2014. He has recently become the voice of the audio book Dangerous Gambles by acclaimed American Author J.H Sanderson which also features Sewell’s music . Sewell’s music has not only been recorded recently by several American artists but is also featured  on numerous major compilations alongside legendary artists such as Robert Johnson, B.B King and Howlin’ Wolf.

March To May :
  March to May began under unusual circumstances in late December of 2012. The musical spark between Darren and Beth arose around a roaring beach bonfire along a remote section of the Washington coast. Neither of them had realized the musical potential they shared when they first met a few weeks before – and not until several more chance encounters did they realize that the musical chemistry between them was truly magical. Once the spark hit, it didn't take long for them to catch fire. By March 2013 they had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead.
Two years and over 80 shows later, they released their critically acclaimed debut EP, The Water’s Edge, to a sold-out show on a historic steamship. Their single, “Embers”, spent eleven consecutive weeks at #1 on Yallwire’s Yallturnative Music Video charts and won an Akademia Award for Best Pop / Singer-Songwriter Song (August 2015). Their sound has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. In the words of Chuck Taylor, former Sr. Editor at Billboard Magazine, “Folk duo March to May’s soft and gentle new single “Embers” is certainly a song that we can all relate to…all that’s missing here is a fading sunset and a requisite glass of red wine. Cheers… to that love we shall never forget.”
