ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dave Herrero began playing music professionally at the age of 20 years old in Jacksonville, FL. Initially, he was largely influenced by Muddy Waters, Albert King and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, which (with the help of friend Seth Walker) prompted his move to Austin, TX, upon receiving his degree from the University of North Florida in Psychology.

Dave cut his teeth in Austin, playing with the who's who of the Austin blues community (Marcia Ball, Charlie Sexton, Seth Walker, Gary Clark Jr, Matt Powell, The Keller Bros., Nick Curran, Lazy Lester etc.), and was the guitarist and opening act for Houston legends Archie Bell and the Drells. With Archie, Dave completed his first USO tour of Hungary, Bosnia and Macendonia in support of our troops overseas. While in Austin, Dave began touring Scandinavia, selling anywhere from 250 to 500 tickets per show. In Austin, he opened for "Blue Monday" at Antone's with Mark Goodwin and Rob Roy Parnell for a year and a half. When he would play the legendary 6th Street club, Joe's Generic Bar, the club would quite often be above fire marshall capacity, and on more than one occassion, the fire marshall would come to clear the club from being over the 150 person limit. During this time, Dave sold 3,000 copies of his freshman release, "Hard Life Blues". Before relocating to Chicago, with the help of Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff, Nicole Shiro and Nancy Coplin, Dave founded a 501 (C) 3 non-profit organization called The Blues Society of Austin, now The Austin Blues Society. www.austinbluessociety.org

In 2004, Dave moved to Chicago to team up with his brother to form TrackForce Productions, L.L.C. Since then, Dave and his brother, known to the Chicago community as "The Hero Brothers", are producing music for Harpo Productions, www.oprah.com, Telepictures (Tyra Banks, TMZ and Extra), www.telepictures.com and MTV's "Rob and Big", as well as the infamous rap group Psycho Drama.

The Hero Brothers have teamed up with old friend and Dallas native, now in Chicago, Felix Reyes, and have been working on a few different projects. A new blues record entitled "Austin to Chicago" will be officially released in early June. Also, an original side project combining the stylings of blues and gangsta rap music is in the works as well. Think Albert King meets the Legendary Traxster. And finally, a blues influenced singer songwriter record is in the can. Felix, affectionaltely known as "Uncle Fe", wrote the title song for Susan Tedeschi's record, entitled, "Wait For Me".

Dave just completed a very successful tour of Sweden and plans another trip to Scandinavia in September.
