Darryl is basically a self taught musician. He studied for 2 years at Florida A&M University. He was originally enrolled as Architecture major. One day, the dean called him to his office and said, “Steele, I was at the club last night and I really enjoyed your performance. And looking over your drawings I have an idea. You see, you are passing your classes, and your drawings are okay, however I would like to take you over and get you in the music department, because while you are passing your classes, you really should be studying music.” So for the next two years Steele studied guitar and voice. He soon left school to earn money to support his wife and children. He worked full time as a deputy clerk in the Leon County Courthouse while working every night playing his guitar. After 12 years he left the courthouse to pursue his music full time.
