Darrell Nulisch returns with Just For You after his last BMA nominated album Goin’ Back to Dallas. Just for You showcases Darrell’s powerfully soulful voice in a soul/R&B groove, infused with the essence of pure blues. “For everyone who believes in the power of live music and that the real heartbeat of American music is still beating, this one is…Just for You,” says Nulisch in the album’s liner notes. The album features six original songs, as well as his unique takes on J.J. Malone’s “It’s a Shame,” Slim Harpo’s “Just for You,” “The Woman Don’t Live Here Anymore” (originally recorded by Otis Clay) and a wonderful reading of “Work for Love,” which was originally recorded in Memphis by label mate Lou Pride in the early ‘70s. Pride adds background vocals on the album as a special guest.
Backing Nulisch are the members of Severn’s talented “house band,” including Benjie Porecki on keyboards, Steve Gomes on bass and Robb Stupka on drums, plus current Fabulous Thunderbirds guitarist Johnny Moeller and a full horn section with arrangements by the legendary Willie Henderson (Tyrone Davis, Chi-Lites).
Once again I would like to thank David Earl and Severn Records for another opportunity to express myself, and for having the patience and perseverance to make this and every project the best it can be. Thanks also to my closest friends, who also happen to be my band mates, Steve,Robb, and Jon. Thanks to all the talented musicians and singers whose names arelisted for providing hip chops and soulful inspiration. Also thanks to Rico andErkan. A very special thanks, and lots of love, go to Dolores and Lyla. For everyone who believes in the power of live music and that the real heartbeatof American music is still beating, this one is … Just for You. — Peace, Darrell
