Discovering her gift for music at the age of three, Southern California born Darlynn Voesten
never stopped chasing her passion to create and play music. From playing piano for her Jr. High
and High School choir and other musical productions, to joining in on her first Rock N Roll band
right out of high school, Darlynn has always had the drive to show the world, or just herself, how
the sound of her fingers hitting the ivory keys can be so expressive.
After being influenced early on by both classical and rock music (such as Queen, Kansas,
Emerson Lincoin Palmer, Stix, Toto, Stealy Dan, and Black Sabbith) her talents led her to
collaborate with a wide variety of musical endeavors. In the early 80s, Darlynn paid her dues like
any other striving musician by performing in the Los Angeles and Hollywood scene with original
bands such as Breta and the Beats, Da Bronx, and American Girls to name a few. Challenging
herself more and more, Darlynn strived to expand out of Top 40 into the country explosion of the
90s. In this time, Darlynn joined the group Roy Rodgers Jr. and the High Riders who then had
the opportunity to open for many great talents which include the likes of Stephen Stills, Asleep at
the Wheel, and Michael Martin Murphy. After her fill of playing for other bands, in the early
2000s she decided to set out on her own and start her own band Bubba Janster. For almost ten
years she called the shots, she picked the music, and she played her little heart out. After
deciding to settle down in 2010, her journey continued as she moved into the funk genre playing
for the all-girl recording artist Kly Maxx.
Recently, Darlynn, music in her heart and adventure in her soul, was able to travel the country
playing with some of the biggest tribute bands of her generation. She has played in tributes to
Bob Seager, Led Zeppelin and Heart, she has now come full circle to where her love for Black
Sabbith all began and has the pleasure of playing with the critically acclaimed Ozzmania.
For the last 50 years of pounding the ivories (well actually plastic keys) to Top 40, country,
classical, rock, and funk music, Darlynn has never stayed idle. This is only a small glimpse of
her musical journey that has yet to see an end.
