His impending album Delta Crossroads - Vol II, which will see it's Cleveland-exclusive physical release on Sunday, March 27, pays tribute to many blues classics such as "i got to find me a woman" (Robert Lockwood, Jr.), "sweet home chicago" (Robert Johnson), "memphis" (Chuck Berry) and many more. The record was cut live over 2 days at Superior Sound Recordings in Cleveland. It includes contributions from several of northeast Ohio's finest musicians: Justin Gorski (piano), William Watson (bass) and Rod Reisman (drums).


For those who can't make it to the show, the album will be released to the public track-by-track over the next 9 days via Fishhead Recordings' Facebook, starting with track 1, "i got to find me a woman."

DC has traveled around the globe playing with all the masters. Come join him for a Cleveland-exclusive soft CD release show on March 27th at the Beachland Ballroom.
