about

What do Eddie Shaw, Billy Branch and Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin have in common? Besides being Blues royalty, they all make guest appearances on Derrick Procell's new album of original blues. Mostly penned with Grammy award winning lyricist Terry Abrahamson, Americana artist Procell digs deep into his blues roots to come up with some soulful, rockin', and sometimes reverent stuff. Abrahamson, author of the fascinating photo memoir, IN THE BELLY OF THE BLUES, writes: On the day Derrick Procell got born, his soul was waitin' for him ninety miles South. On the West Side. Under the el. In back at Silvio's. Perched on a keg it rode down from Milwaukee. Soakin' in the last jagged echoes of Howlin' Wolf and the grit, sweat and muscle of the man who hauled that keg. Lines like "it's in the sins of old Son House" and "the Wolf will howl again" waited a lifetime for the voice that carries that soul. Weren't no other way. The Wolf is listening. 'Nuff said.
