Derral Gleason

Derral Gleason


Soul kissed rock n' roll and a blues injected melody with muscle involving desperate guitar wrestling. Lean, clean and bluesy.


Derral's diversity is illustrated by a musical history which has seen his bands touring nationally and internationally with the Police, INXS, Iggy Pop, and the Divinyls... to solo-acoustic openings with Jerry Jeff Walker and Reverend Horton Heat.

Some notable quotes from selected reviews are:

"... melody with muscle ... fresh, haunting, lyrics ... layered with infectious rhythm ..."


"... sings with an aching poignancy reminiscent of Van Morrison during his 'Astral Weeks' period ..."
