California based troubadour, Will Derryberry began showing up in local clubs, stunning listeners with a brand of blues that leaned heavily on the styles of Robert Johnson, Ray Charles, and Eric Clapton. âWhen I was 5 years old, I heard BB Kingâs The Thrill is Gone, something happened to me. Itâs oxymoronic, but as he sang that song, I got extremely excited!â His fretwork and soulful voice gained a strong following, and several years of refining his talent, he was signed onto the Sacramento based label, Fair Oaks Music. Thus teaming up with bass player Ian Kilpatrick, and drummer Baron Miller. The Will Derryberry Band was set in 1999. The trio went on to record, tour the United States; sell CDs in the tens of thousands and Receive moderate radio airplay on the Clear Channel broadcasting system, the largest radio broadcasting company in the country.
In 2003, Willâs focus was set on writing a solo folk/blues CD. That same year he released Roots. Will continued to travel and perform what many call his signature sound. Will even admits, â After I recorded Roots, playing music got easier somehow, it was like I was able to be me.â
Along the way Will met up with artist manager/BMI published songwriter John Cordova (of Jc7 Productions), who caught Will performing in the San Francisco bay area, liked what he heard and suggested putting together a batch of musicians and songs for Will to record. Will was intrigued with the idea of collaborating and soon found himself recording tracks co-penned by Cordova and Lou Carlozo (of Blue Lit Souls fame). After months of writing and recording songs, Target of Your Favor was released.
âIt was a new experiment for me, joining together with this team,â says Will of the collective that also included co-producer Danny Duncan and a series of seasoned session musicians. âIt caused me to really shift gears musically and I found myself going away from the deep and dirty blues and folk into more of a pop/alternative rock direction. This was a fun challenge for me because I proved to myself that I could cross multiple genres and make it work.â
A year later, Will was back to writing and recording. âMy favorite aspect of what I do is writing and recording songs. I like songs that are organic sounding, and actually have something to say.â Comparisons can be made with songwriters/bands Ray LaMontagne, Pete Yorn, and The Wallflowers.
Currently, Will is recording songs for a new CD entitled âSevenâ and will be released sometime in early 2008.âI want to get back to writing those tunes where I can be vulnerable and real.â As well, Will continues his songwriting for film and TV recently placing his song âSevenâ in NBCâs cop drama âLifeâ and âwhere Your Heart Livesâ in NBCâs âFriday Night Lightsâ.
Will summarizes. âI just hope to keep finding opportunities to share my music with as many people as possible. I know that there is power in the stories and confessions of a well written lyric, as well, a melody that can take us to the place where our heart lives, struggles, and endures. Sharing this kind of song is my hope. We donât need these songs however, but we all deeply want these kinds of songs because we have the innate desire to be connected with each other.â
