Album Notes
“Whether it’s playing with Lee Rocker and others, or fronting his own bands, Brophy brings an ideal blend of rock, country, blues, R&B, and rockabilly riffs—plus a distinctive slide style and tone.”
-Guitar Player magazine, January 2008

“Everybody has something they bring to a band, and Brophy brings the soul”
-guitarist Scotty Moore

"One of the most unexpected pleasures of 2008"
-Blues Revue magazine, December/January 2009

Brophy Dale has gained a widespread respect for his passionate roots-rockin’ guitar and vocals. He's played all over the world, from Moscow to Melbourne, Anchorage to Zurich. lived in Texas to Africa, but now calls Southern California home. He honed his guitar chops in the Midwest, mostly Ann Arbor/Detriot area in countless Rock, R’n B, Blues, Oldies, and Country bands that set him on a journey and has taken him from local bar guitar hero to an international recognized performer. Brophy’s first big moment came when he got to backup the late great Memphis soul singer, O.V.Wright (Nickel and a Nail) for a few gigs. Moving out West in the late 80s, Brophy worked/toured with Robert Lucas of Canned Heat, Smokey Wilson, Joe Houston, & King Ernest to name a few, on the Southern California blues scene. He's also had the opportunity to work with some of his heroes, which include Dave Edmunds, Delbert McClinton and a few tours with Scotty Moore. The last ten years Brophy has worked steadily with Alligator recording artist Lee Rocker, a Rockabilly/Americana cat who came to fame in the '80s as bassist for the wildly popular Stray Cats. He's recorded six records, with co-writes on the last three and been on several compilation records with Lee also. Brophy’s playing can be heard and on sound tracks for Kids ESPN in Japan to placement on TV shows with Lee, Numbers and the WB show Supernatural.

Now, hot off the presses comes Dale’s first outing as a solo artist, Night Hawkin', which aptly showcases his talents as a guitarist, song writer and vocalist. Brophy wrote seven of the thirteen tunes and shows off his signature blend of good-time roots rockin blues-a-billy playin’ and tones plus a distinctive slide style. There’s a good variety of feels—from the ‘Nawlins second line, “‘Cha Gonna Do”, to the more rockin’ rumba of “Sound The Bell”, to the cool lap-wailian steel tune, “You Get What You Pay For”. There’s a nice dose of blues with the shufflin’ “Oh Babe”, the butt rockin’, “Sittin’ n’ Rockin’. and of course that Texas grind with “Satisfy Suzie”. The title cut, “Night Hawkin’”, is a killer slow blues slide, in the Mick Taylor/Lowell George tradition. “Key Thang” is as close as he gets to the Stones with his wall-of-guitar sounds. “All Tore Up”, a flat out roots rocker, and “Meat Man”, more of a straight rock-a-billy are both already in rotation on Lee Rocker's XM Satellite radio show, "Rumble and Twang". The album highlights the excitement and power of a Brophy Dale live performance, which has a reputation for tight musicianship, a magnetic stage presence, and “having a helluva good time!”

Way to go Cousin Brophy!
Wish I could play as Brophy can. His God given talent with 6 strings is unparalleled as he flies up and down the fret board. Way to go Mr. Dale.

Hot and Sweet
This is blues that will put a smile on your face. If you've been missing Stevie Ray Vaughan you should definitely go nighthawkin' with Brophy Dale.


Night Hawkin'
When Brophy and I used to get up nearly every morning, have a cup of coffee, smoke a cigarette, and play guitars 30+ years ago, I wouldn't have thought it possible that he could get much better. I've been proven wrong. He has mastered the craft, and this CD proves it with it's clean, crisp slides and awesome bluesy strumming. I just wish he and I weren't thousands of miles apart so I could once again smoke, drink and jam with him.

Brophy Dale is southern California's best kept secret - until now. Finally we get a CD of Brophy's blues based, rockin' roots music. Hopefully this will allow him to tour so the rest of the country can have a taste of what we here in SoCal have been enjoying for years. Until then, just dig this great CD.

Butt Rockin' Perfected!!
This CD may have taken a lot longer to get done than most of us wanted but, man, it was worth the wait!! If you've seen Brophy Dale on tour with Lee Rocker, or with the ultra-tight Brophy Dale Band, you know this guy can pick and sing with the best of them. Nothing can capture a live Brophy Dale performance but this comes as close as it can get. From tasty instrumentals to butt rockin' roots and blues this CD has it all.


lookin for good Rootsmusic? Brophy Dale is the answer!
What a sound? And cool songs written and performed by Brophy Dale.
I love his guitarsound also in the Lee Rocker band.
But his Solo work kicks a**!
He mixed up Blues, Country, Rockabilly, R`nR.
Great CD! Would be great to see him in Europe.
