Album Notes

American Blues Box, was formed in 2006 by front-man, songwriter Derek Davis and drummer James Pacheco.
Derek and James are original members of former Arista Recording artists Babylon A.D.

Originating in the San Francisco Bay Area, American Blues Box combines hard rock and screaming blues much in the same style as early Aerosmith. With soulful vocals, colorful story telling, wailing bottle neck slide-guitar and blistering harmonica, the band has made an extremely impressive debut.

On their new self titled 12 song CD. American Blues Box displays their talent on the super charged slide-guitar rockers “Mississippi Mud” and “Whiskey and Water”. They deliver the emotional goods on “Killing Time” and “When You Were Young”, and bring home a burning rendition of the classic “Some kind of Wonderful”. This first offering by American Blues Box proves the band has what it takes for a large and diverse audience.

Derek and James’ early success began when their previous band Babylon A.D. signed to Arista Records in 1989. Discovered by legendary music mogul Clive Davis, the band recorded two critically acclaimed CDs, scored three number one songs at Metal radio and reached gold on their first release. Constant touring throughout the 1990s and MTV videos made them one of hard rock fans favorites. The band released two more CDs on Apocalypse Records: “Live in your Face” in 1999 and “American Blitzkrieg” in 2002, both well received by their fans.

Since their inception two years ago American Blues Box has spent their time performing live, writing and recording. The new CD is a powerful testament to their creativity and originality and is certain to generate a lot of attention!

The new CD is available at all music internet distributors as well as all digital down load sites. Check it out!

Derek Davis - Vocals, Slide Guitar, Songwriter.

Excellent Rockin' Blues
I loved this album. It makes me feel like I'm sittin' on the porch of my Tennessee cabin with the radio cranked up -- just rockin' out. Being a fan of Derek's former band, Babylon A.D., this album did not let me down one bit. These guys know how to play and sing and put so much emotion into the songs that you can't help but feel it. Like a smooth bottle of whiskey and a cigarette.

Chris Kaiser

Can't get enough
I have always been a fan of Babylon A.D. and Derek Davis and I love this CD. This is nothing like Babylon A.D. but it cooks, man. This is some of the best blues rock I have heard in a long time. Derek's bluesy, soulful voice is perfect for this music and you will love it too. Listen to the samples, become a believer, and buy the CD.

Smokin' Vocals - Smokin' Blues
Derek and the boys have recorded one of the great Blues/Rock albums of all time. I had the pleasure of seeing and meeting these guys live at a private party a few years ago and I was hooked. Don't pass this CD up. Can't wait for the next CD!!
