Bio

Country artist DERRYL PERRYreally stands out from the crop of artists
that have recently debuted on the Country radio dial.His national profile
and fan base continue to expand through nationwide radio airplay, hard
touring and impressive artistic achievements,such as being hailed as the
2005 Small Label Breakout Artist Of The Yearand Small Label Artist Of
The Year by MUSIC ROWmagazine, Nashville's premier music industry
trade publication.
As an artist,Derryl's unique musical style blends the classic traditions of
today's Country with the roots-oriented edginess of Americana and Texas
Music. It's a potent style, infused with a Southwestern flavor that he's
picked up through years of songwriting and performing.
As a live performer, Derryl has established a growing legion of fans
through non-stop touring and a dynamic stage show of original material
that mixes poignant ballads with danceable, high-energy tunes. Since
2000, he's logged over 800 fair, festival, casino and major club
performances in 27 states. He's also opened for such recording artists
as Diamond Rio,Tracy Byrd,Joe Diffie,Chris Ledoux,Andy Griggs,Asleep
at the Wheel,Gene Watson and Gary Allan.
Originally hailing from Texas City, TX, Derryl grew up in the midst of a
Texas Music scene where the term “Country”describes a lifestyle as
much as it does a genre of music. His blue-collar beginnings, combined
with the musical influences of such prominent Texas artists as Willie
Nelson, Gary Stewart and George Strait, provided Derryl with abundant
inspiration to draw upon as he began developing his own musical voice.
He performed in bands around the competitive Dallas/Ft.Worth club circuit while honing his songwriting skills with the help
of hit songwriters in Nashville.After relocating to Nashville,Derryl released a demo project that garnered substantial music
industry attention. Shortly thereafter, songs Derryl had written or co-written were recorded by other artists as well as
performed by artists appearing on the Grand Ole Opry.
After signing a record deal with Nashville-based Music City Records,Derryl recorded his debut album ALL JUST TO GET TO
YOU. J.Gary Smith,who has worked with Andy Griggs,Merle Haggard,Willie Nelson,Johnny Cash,Waylon Jennings,Bonnie
Raitt and Lonestar in a production capacity, spearheaded the studio production of the album with Derryl taking on a
co-producer role.
Much of the ALL JUST TO GET TO YOUalbum was either written or co-written by Derryl,
including the radio singles “Four Nights In Albuquerque,”“You Will”and “The Only Cure.”
Derryl’s critically acclaimed debut single “Four Nights In Albuquerque,”has become a
signature song during his live performances. After hearing it,prominent Country music
historian and critic Robert K.Oermann proclaimed,“Make room for another Derryl! This
singer-songwriter is a definite DISCovery.His honky-tonk vocal is super-expressive,and
he's got a dandy story to tell with his lyric of finding unexpected romance.” An early
demo version of “You Will”was featured in the USA Television Network movie BLOOD
CRIME (2002) and with its driving rhythm and distinctive guitar licks has since become
both a radio hit and dance favorite during Derryl's live shows. “The Only Cure,”his most
recent single,is a hurtin' song of the first magnitude that is steeped in timeless Country
music traditions.
ALL JUST TO GET TO YOUis available in stores now. All of the songs from the album are also available as digital permanent
downloads through the iTunes Music Store and other online music download retail outlets.
