Darcy Wilkin is a singer-songwriter from Kalamazoo, Michigan. A longtime member of Americana band The Corn Fed Girls, she released her debut solo album, Bristol, produced by Joe Newberry and engineered by Martin Klemm, in January of 2020. Plans to tour were, of course, scuttled soon after. She’s looking forward to getting out in the world in a safe way as soon as possible.

The Corn Fed Girls
Since 1997, Darcy has been a member of Americana band, The Corn Fed Girls. A truly collaborative group, each member writes and sings, coming up with quirky, heartfelt originals, as well as innovative takes on traditional tunes and crooner ballads. With their third record currently in production, they’ve long been a favorite on the Michigan Festival circuit. Their first two albums, “Corn Star” and “Papercuts”, are available digitally and from cdbaby.com. The Corn Fed Girls frequently join forces with their partners in crime, The Red Sea Pedestrians. From elaborately staged holiday productions to recreating Beatles albums, all live, in their entirety, these two bands share a warm, fuzzy, symbiotic relationship.
