Darren Robinson (born 24 August 1978) is an American guitarist and background singer in the Californian band, Phantom Planet. 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 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, whose current lineup was formed in Summer of 2009. The band includes singer John Graney, Robinson on vocals and guitar, Jonathan Price on guitar, keyboard and vocals, bassist Wendy Wang, and drummer Mike Hopkins.
In August 2012, Robinson spearheaded a new experimental music project, Twin Terrors. Through SoundCloud, new music from this entity is being released, with some tracks featuring Phantom Planet's Greenwald.
