Biography

In 1972, he formed a partnership with childhood friend John Oates and embarked on a 30-odd year creative journey. In addition to his work with Oates, he has made music as a solo artist, first recording with Robert Fripp in the late ‘70s, producing the much-acclaimed Sacred Songs as well as working on Fripp’s critically praised Exposure.


Personal life

After almost 30 years with Sara Allen, his longtime girlfriend and musical collaborator, (made famous by the song "Sara Smile"), Daryl and Sara decided to end their relationship for good in 2001.


Daryl is also a restorer and preserver of historic homes in both the United States and England. According to the Associated Press, Daryl is the new owner of a 345 year old John Bray House in Maine. Daryl also has restored a Georgian home in London, England, first built in 1740, one of only 50 houses with direct waterfront access to the River Thames.


Hall is currently restoring two homes, one built in 1771 the other in 1780, both now located on the same property in Dutchess County, New York. After he moved them together, he discovered both homes, by coincidence, were connected to the same family.
