Darryl Rahn is a central New York native currently based in Brooklyn. His distinct voice and narrative lyricism have earned him spots on the same stage as Guster, Wild Child, Moe., and many more. He is currently on the road supporting his latest LP, Making Strangers, which was released on August 31, 2018.
"It isn’t often that a palpable room-wide reaction to a performer can be spotted, especially on the Lower East Side where everyone is seemingly already over the next big thing." - Ron Boling, Imperfect Fifth
"When someone can captivate you with just a voice and a guitar they're doing something right" - Brian Rosenworcel of Guster
“Rahn exemplifies a Josh Ritter type in both instrumentation and public representation--a dazzling persona. ” - Sam Newman-Plotnick, Cornell Radio
Behaviorist is the solo project of Stephen Chen, the baritone saxophonist of Brooklyn’s acclaimed art-rock powerhouse San Fermin. Named after the psychological revolution that imagined living beings as manipulable machines, Behaviorist takes an incisively critical look at human behavior with startlingly frank lyrics set over ever-shifting musical arrangements. Chen’s urgent constancy on saxophone contrasts his plaintive vocals, while symphonic horns and pianos ebb between icy, electronic stillnesses and flashes of 80’s rock.
Influences include Dirty Projectors, St Vincent, NAO, Jack Garratt, and Colin Stetson.
