Daring Greatly

An Evening with Mountain Inspired Rock Band, Daring Greatly

Daring Greatly, a name that echoes far beyond the identities of its members, stands as a powerful testament to living boldly and embracing vulnerability. This mantra, derived from a stirring excerpt of Theodore Roosevelt’s 1910 “Citizen’s In A Republic” speech, famously known as “The Man in the Arena,” sparked the imagination of a group of multi-generational visionaries from the sunny eastern foothills of Canada’s Rocky Mountains—in a city known as Calgary.

In 2014, this collective of creative spirits founded an independent rock group in Calgary, Alberta, featuring the unique blend of three distinguished lead vocalists: Dail Croome alongside his sons, Patrick and Liam, and their lifelong friend, Brayden Tario. Together, they crafted a sound that melds harmony-rich rock ‘n’ roll with the U.S Folk and Americana traditions of the ’60s and ’70s, infused with lyrics that speak to love, courage, vulnerability, and the pursuit of a purposeful life.

Guided by the compelling influence of their father, Dail, the band embarked on a journey that transcended the Canadian borders, leading them to the vibrant musical landscape of San Diego. Over ten (10) transformative years, Daring Greatly has not only woven their Canadian heritage into their music but also embraced the diverse influences of American rock and country, creating a soundscape that resonates with listeners on a deeply personal level.

This potent blend of genres creates an auditory journey that feels both familiar and invigorating—a sonic testament that resonates deeply with all who encounter it. Their remarkable achievement of securing the 2023 San Diego Music Awards’ “Song of the Year” distinction for their evocative track “Never A Goodbye” speaks volumes about their soul-stirring compositions and potent lyrical narratives. Furthermore, their nominations for “Best Rock Artist” and “Best Rock Album” underscore their ability to craft music that resonates on a profound level.

Central to the band’s dynamic is the profound fraternal bond between the Croome brothers, whose on-stage chemistry is an enchanting sight to behold. Interchanging as lead vocalists, their voices intertwine flawlessly, bestowing audiences with a captivating and ever-evolving auditory journey. Drummer Brayden Tario, a lifelong confidant of the Croome brothers since their high school days, seamlessly complements their synergy with his rhythmic finesse. His percussive mastery not only anchors the band’s rhythm but his harmonious vocals provide an ethereal counterpoint to the brothers’ melodies—an extraordinary talent that is a rarity to find.
