The heart of a troubadour and the soul of a songwriter are both easy to please and hard to keep satisfied. Derryl Perry is one Texan that has to both stay on the road in a high energy stage environment and also grind to keep rendering those precious private and introspective glimpses of the artist's take on life. He has worked this balancing act to the tune of over 2500 shows and is now presenting a compilation of songs dedicated for his latest cd project titled "Lone Star Summer."
Derryl and his band, The Lonesome Devils, are both telling and living the story almost every week in venues all over the country. He has performed concerts with other artists, recently sharing the stage with the likes of Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Montgomery-Gentry, Joe Nichols and Darius Rucker, and also with Texas honed acts like Aaron Watson, the Randy Rogers Band, Casey Donahue and the Josh Abbott Band .
Derryl's latest single release to radio, the self-penned “lone star summer,” is all about the rewards of a spicy hot summer, those only a texas can appreciate from first hand experience. the song also describes, with endearment, the yearning to get back to those annual rituals of a "lone star summer." and derryl does it in his deeply rooted dancehall approach to music, as it shines in his productions as well.
Derryl has released recordings on the independent Lonesome Devil Records label for the last five album projects and performs many of the crowd favorite songs on the “Memoirs From The Road,” “Lucky Thirteen,” “Love & Adrenaline,” “Rowdy” and “The Deep End” projects in his live show.
Previously, Derryl landed a record deal with Nashville-based Music City Records and recorded and nationally released the album “All Just To Get To You” with critical acclaim going to the nationally charted radio singles “Four Nights In Albuquerque” and “You Will”. Music Row Magazine, Nashville's premier music industry trade publication, awarded Derryl with both the Small Label Artist of the Year and Small Label Breakout Artist of the Year. The USA television network movie “BLOOD CRIME” also featured “You Will” and is still broadcast around the world.
Come to a live show or push play on your copy of his collection of works and get in touch with the romanticism of the sawdust floor under your boots, the helplessness of your heart being stolen, and the freedom of a payday Friday night.
