Like We Used To Before

New single from Los Angeles based R&B meets pop artist Darius Martin, Like We Used To Before, celebrates the timelessness of being in love. Characterized by his expansive atmospherics and undeniably infectious hooks, Martin reminisces on the beauty of a present moment shared with his sweetheart.

Filled with dreamlike notes of guitar and percussion, Like We Used To Before draws you in with unbridled emotion as Darius confronts his past and makes peace with himself in this powerful ode to the serendipitous nature of love.

This song represents all the wonderful times and memories you’ve had with someone; knowing that even though the road we chose brought us here, those very same roads will always lead us home.

Fate though, had a different plan, and when a serious illness sidelined Martin, he began channeling his time into discovering his new passion for music. Influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, Martin began experimenting with different sounds and genres aiming to achieve a sound that is fresh as it is timeless.

The songwriter attended the prestigious Los Angeles Film Institute where he graduated in 2020. His college experience further reinforced his passion and ambition to pursue a career in music.
