Deep em aka Darren Paul Maddock or dpm is an Australian born singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, farmer, and part-time rancher.

IN THE BEGINNING
Deep E.M. grew up at the the foot of Mount Big Ben and Mount Little Ben in Ben valley Yackandandah. As a budding musician through the 1980’s and 90’s he was known as The Ben Valley kid and was to be taken seriously.
A love of music developed in his early teens whilst learning accordion, keys, saxophone, percussion, and guitar. Long stints in rock and country bands, trios and as a soloist has enabled him to develop a stage presence and rapport with audiences, deeming him worthy of further musical pursuit.
