25-year-old blues phenomenon D.K. Harrell raises every roof in town on his debut album The Right Man.
Available now on the Little Village Foundation imprint, The Right Man comes across like the work of a lifetime blues master in possession of all the wisdom the music has to offer. He’s an outstanding singer and guitarist with a big-league presence and the kind of intuitive skills you just don’t hear every day. Harrell tracked The Right Man at Kid Andersen’s esteemed Greaseland Studios with Andersen and Grammy winners Jerry Jemmott, Jim Pugh, and Tony Coleman backing him up.
With this much combined talent, the record couldn’t be anything short of amazing and it exceeds that mark considerably. Harrell is just the kind of young, committed artist the blues world needs to keep its traditions alive while also connecting with a modern audience.
Hailing from Ruston, Louisiana, D. K. Harrell has always been all about the blues. He discovered the music as he was hitting his teenage years and quickly made becoming a bluesman his mission in life. This set him apart from most of his peers back then and still does now. “I’m Black, I’m young and the music I like is blues,” he said. “How much do you think I have in common with people my age?”
The Right Man is a blast from end to end and invites us into what has to be the blues party of the year. D.K. Harrell is an absolute beast on all levels and has a bright future ahead. Get in on it now so you don’t miss a single note. - Rock and Blues muse "Top 20 Best Blues Rock Albums of 2023"
