Resonator Blues

This may sound as a bit of a cliché, but not everyone can play the blues and that is something that it shows–you can tell with just listening when someone plays this genre and it’s not feeling. The blues is about feeling and is about swagger, which is something Derek Davis has proven with his latest release, “Resonator Blues.”

“Resonator Blues” deals with the common issue of not being the most eclectic of albums, but Derek Davis finds a way of making it work and delivers with the vast majority of the songs, which is something worth pointing out. It’s an album that is fun, enjoyable and with a musician firing on all cylinders, thus becoming one of the strongest releases so far this year.

Revolutionary Soul


Revolutionary Soul is a vast and adventurous effort, fully realized by its mastermind Derek Davis – who not only sings with a heated passion but also performs all of the instruments. An infinitely intriguing album that all types of music connoisseurs will wish to revisit time and again,

Davis’s combination of old school R&B, Funk, Soul and Hard Rock is a real treat for the ears and its something I’d certainly like to hear more of.

Derek Davis - Re-Volt

Derek Davis has brought together an eclectic mix of songs. “It’s not the Beatles White album, but I feel I have had the freedom of expression to write and produce music the way I have always wanted, something you usually can’t do with the restrictions of a major label,” says Derek.

Lyrically, and musically painting a moving picture landscape. Derek has created a true modern anthem rock album, with a wild and twisted roller coaster ride of emotions for its listeners. The vocals, melodies, musicianship and production are excellent and the execution and arrangements all fit together nicely. Vocally, Derek’s style is high-octane grit, full of electric energy, different enough to push beyond the modern day Daughtry clones and provide the material with the exact right combination of power and attitude.
