D'Kieran "D.K." Harrell was born on April 24, 1998 in Ruston, Louisiana.
From the beginning D.K. was surrounded by the music of the absolute greats of Blues, R&B, Soul, and Gospel provided mostly by His Mother Christal and His Grandfather.
At 13, he got his first guitar, and began to teach himself how to play and SOUND like all of his heroes. Which happened to be the greatest blues guitarists of all time.
He dove head first into the Kings of the Blues. Albert King, Freddie King, and most notably, The King of the Blues, B.B. King. D.K.'s particular obsession with B.B. King's style and technique has since manifested into His ability to nail the tone and licks of THE King with incredible accuracy.
D'Kieran's respect for these great artists, and his desire to play like them has proven to be his secret weapon.
D.K. is also a prolific songwriter with hundreds of songs ready to go. His first studio sessions are currently being discussed and planned for the near future. As well as plans for a tour in 2022.
D.K Harrell is one of the most talked about young Blues Guitarist, and is fast becoming a fan favorite. He's got the touch, dynamic range, tonality, taste, and showmanship of a future blues guitar legend, and vocals to match.
In a very short time, D.K. Harrell has gone from an unknown prodigy playing in His house, to a well-respected professional who never fails to impress.
In the past year alone. D.K. has shared the stage with such Legendary Blues musicians, as former B.B. King band members, Tony TC Coleman, Walter Riley King, and Michael Doster.
As well as Gary Clark Jr. , Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, Raful "Lil Ray" Neal, Kenny Neal, Vasti Jackson, Castro "Mr. Sipp" Coleman, Selwyn Birchwood, Jontavious Willis and Memphis Legends Vince Johnson, Leroy "Flick" Hodges, Marquis "Tank" Hodges, and Homer Hamilton.
The list continues to grow.
I believe that D.K.'s future in the Blues is secure. I am proud to be representing D.K. Harrell and be a part of his journey.
