Derrick & Terry's four co-writes keyed the rise of Derrick's latest release,
HELLO MOJO on the esteemed Catfood Record label to the top of the Roots charts.
Besides the title track, D & T penned the opening song, SKIN IN THE GAME, as well as COLOR OF AN ANGEL & A TALL GLASS OF YOU. The album also includes a couple of Derrick solo originals, a few co-writes with Bob Trenchard and a crazy cool cover of a Kinks classic, WHO'LL BE THE NEXT IN LINE. Produced by BMA winner Zac Harmon ( who also guests with some powerhouse blues guitar solos) this record is set to turn D & T into household names in the Blues world.

BIG SHAKES FROM BIG LLOU
2022 Started off with a bang as Big Llou Johnson released his long overdue follow-up CD, BIG MAN. Already a well known voice in the Blues world as the voice SiriusXM's BB King's Bluesville, MC for Legendary Blues Cruise and the BMA's. It quickly rose to the top of every Blues chart on the strength of Llou's name, excellent production and top notch songs. Here's what Blues Blast Magazine had to say about Derrick & Terry's contribution to the album featuring the spectacular violinist Anne Harris:
“Never Get Over Me,” the most interesting tune in the set, opens as a ballad with layered strings, picks up speed and professes that the singer’s such a great lover that he’ll be on his lady’s mind long after they’ve parted."
