All for Darcy came into existence when good mates Pete Atkinson and Sam Hickey played music at a Mt.Lilydale footy function. The two then started working on songs together, which Pete had been writing about his son Darcy Atkinson, who passed away in 2012 in unclear circumstances. Pete and Sam realised that the songs were more than just an emotional outlet with a rapidly growing fan base. Ordinary Life is the featured single from All For Darcy’s debut EP Too Beautiful for Earth.
Ordinary Life tells a true story about life’s changes. “It’s real, one day you’re in a happy simple routine and the next all hell can break loose without any notice. The song is written to be uplifting to the listener who may be pushing through a tough time just as I have been through.” Peter says.
The song was then heard by some good friends in Temper Trap who contacted Peter with the idea that he should professionally record his song with their producer and friend, Russell Fawcus at Sing Sing Studios in Cremorne.
Peter took his chance and with good friend Sam (Drums), they arranged
the songs with producer Russell and recorded the Too Beautiful for Earth.
Peter and Sam were proud of what they had achieved and were keen to start
a band and call it All for Darcy.
The band have a 90s rock sound, taking influence from the Goo Goo Dolls, Oasis and Jebediah. All for Darcy aim for their music to be uplifting for people to listen to, to bring hope to those who need it and also to highlight the importance of children’s welfare in broken families.
All for Darcy want to raise awareness and be a voice for fathers who don’t have access to their children because of a biased unjust legal system.
