First Call Session Guitarist, 2014 CCMA Guitar Player of the Year. I've got 10+ years of studio experience and very a diverse approach. I've recorded guitar on countless radio hits, notably on country superstar Dallas Smith's #1 hit "Wastin' Gas", produced by Joey Moi, as well as countless other radio hits.
I'm all about providing exactly what the client is looking for. Guitar parts and tone that suits the song and approach desired by the artist or producer. I've got every mode of tracking guitar available, whether it be mic'ing up an amp with some boutique microphones, or plugging in direct and providing un-effected guitar tracks and everything in between. Whether electric or acoustic, I work until the client has found what they are looking for.
I've spent the last 5 years touring with country superstar Dallas Smith. Prior to the Dallas Smith gig, I toured extensively with one of Nashville's top, Grammy-nominated songwriters by the name of Deric Ruttan (Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and more) I've also toured with One More Girl (formerly signed to Interscope Records), Jason McCoy (the Roadhammers) and MANY more. The expertise and experience gained while touring with these artists was invaluable and as a result, has given me a great gauge on what is sought after as a session guitarist in this day and age.

Reviews of Darren Savard
Darren's a fantastic player! Great tone and always really tasteful parts, if you can hire him, do it!
I've been using Darren for my productions for years. Artists include, Chase Rice, Aaron Pritchett, Cold Creek County, Petric, Kira Isabella, Petric and many more.
Darren is a producer's best friend. His playing is impeccable - always in tune & in time, but it's his ability to come up with relevant & creative parts / sounds / tones on the spot, in any style that make him irreplaceable on any session I'm working. He's also my first choice for band leader because he's super pro (albeit an obnoxious coffee snob)
Darren is the most versatile guitarist around. I have used his talent on many albums, live TV broadcasts and concerts. He never fails me. I can count on him to be a total professional on every call.
