Darren Robinson (musician)

Darren Robinson (born 24 August 1978) is an American guitarist and background singer in the Californian band, Phantom Planet.[1] He helped form the band during his teenage years with the lead singer Alex Greenwald, and ex-band member Jason Schwartzman, in 1994. The band is now on an indefinite hiatus.

He shares the same full name as the late lead rapper of The Fat Boys, who were a Brooklyn hip-hop music trio who emerged in the 1980s.

Robinson attended the Hamilton High School "Humanities" program in Los Angeles, California from 1994 to 1996. }

He began playing guitar at the age of eleven. He took guitar lessons for about two years and then decided to learn more about music through books and his band mates. He is fond of Gibson guitars.

Darren is also the primary author of the Phantom Planet blog, and seems to be the main source of information regarding the band and its progress.

Darren went tour with the band Miniature Tigers in January, February and March 2009.

He is now a member of Southern California surf band The Californian,[2] whose current lineup was formed in Summer of 2009. The band includes John Graney - Vocals, Darren Robinson - Guitar & vox, Jonathan Price - Guitar, Keys & vox, Wendy Wang - Bass & vox, Mike Hopkins - drums & vox
