"D.B. Rielly, Love Potions and Snake Oil"

"I often get asked 'what is Americana music?' It's an impossible question to answer in a few short lines, and really the best way is to play the questioner music — and this album is just about the best example there is. A rich and captivating amalgam of country, blues, Cajun, Zydeco and everything in between. This is quality original rootsy music that you'll want to keep returning to." - Maverick

"D.B. Rielly, Love Potions and Snake Oil"

"Rootsy, frequently very funny, witty and cynical (in a Robbie Fulks way), literate and often extremely dark, yet highly enjoyable, Rielly is definitely someone to watch out for." - Country Music People Magazine

"D.B. Rielly"

"The American DB Rielly may say We're All Going Straight To Hell, but it sounds like it's going to be a fun trip." - AltCountryNL


Love Potions and Snake Oil (album)



D.B. Rielly is a singer/songwriter/composer and multi-instrumentalist (accordion/banjo/guitar) who can be heard on over 40 independent recordings and films. D.B. Rielly revels in and reinterprets the powerful music that built this country and takes his listeners on a nostalgic journey into a previous era. On this journey, D.B. and his trio conjure up the varying textures of the American sonic landscape — past and present.

It’s American Roots music the way it should be. And, on his first full-length album release, “Love Potions and Snake Oil” — a wide-ranging collection of Americana music spanning several genres including Roots, Zydeco, Blues and Alt. Country — D.B. promises his always-diverse listeners an “instantaneous cure for all afflictions.” And if not completely satisfied, D.B., the salesman, adds, “I personally guarantee that if these here concocted remedies fail to eliminate all the trouble & woe that befall man or beast… I’ll eat a bug.”

D.B. has played live at such prestigious venues as Lincoln Center, The Montreux Jazz Festival, Staples Center, and The Apollo Theater. He has performed or recorded with B.B. King, The Boston Pops, Chubby Checker, and Paul Schaffer, among others. He’s been heard on all major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS) and many cable networks (HBO, TMC, CINEMAX, BET, Lifetime) as well.

With D.B. Rielly, the story always leads back to the campfire… You may spot him hitching a ride somewhere — anywhere you’re headed is fine. You may spot him in a deserted diner trying to look up the waitress’ skirt. But one thing is certain: Wherever dogs are howling and little children are holding their ears, you’ll find D.B. Rielly and his squeezebox.
