  •  To say that alt/rock guitarist/songwriter, Darro Chea, aka Darro,  has faced an uphill battle would be an understatement.  Three days after returning to the US from grad school abroad, the Asian-American musician and producer were diagnosed with a brain tumor. The rehabilitation process sent him back to square one, having to learn to speak, chew and sing all over again. Despite this, Darro has maintained a positive attitude, and has turned to humor and fun to push through hardship, something he dubs as “tumor-humor.” His new single, “You’re Not Insane,” is a prime example. The song is a satirical commentary on how society portrays its individuals.  People tend to show only the pretty sides of themselves when in reality, they are struggling with internal issues.  Darro faced this with his brain tumor; just because he looked physically fine on the outside did not mean he was. Darro pokes fun at the notation that everyone is doing as well as they look. LISTEN TO "YOU'RE NOT INSANE"
